    I'm doing the kaplan online practice tests and the highest I've got is 1950. I'm really worried as my exam is tomorrow and I was aiming to get atleast 700 but its just not looking good for me

    1. Don't be negative otherwise you won't be able to do it
    2. As soon as you get tired from practicing, take a break. For me push ups and running helped.
    3. Now for abstract their is an approach especially type 1/4.
    S hape
    C olour
    A rrangement/angles
    N umber
    S ymmetry

    When facing set A/Bs go through each and ask yourself each question. ie what shapes are common in THE SIMPLEST 2 BOXES? if no commonality move on to the next. What colour is common and so on.

    Remember every set is vulnerable to SCANS. The more you practice (medify was smashing for this) the quicker you'll become but be patient and most importantly positive and NEVER look at scores (ie 450/550 etc). Learn common patterns and you'll eventually remember them the more you come across them.

    Final tip: any patterns you get wrong, write them down on a word document and print it out and visualise it. I did this, if you want it i can post it on here.

    Stay positive and good luck. Hoped this help
    i'd really appreciate your word document too, I made one and I can't find it

    Is the 600 questions UKCAT QR more difficult than the actual exam. I'm finding it so difficult to quickly complete any of the QR questions.

    Strongly recommend the second edition "Score higher on the UKCAT" book by Kaplan. Loads of tips on how to answer questions, and they have fully explained answers to questions along with 2 mock exams (although the answers for the mocks don't have explanations which is bugging me). Overall 9/10 book.

    I find the problem with books is, you get used to holding the book in your hand and using a pen/pencil to guide etc. It's just very different to the actual test.

    But they are good.*

    There's nothing wrong with it if you've got 2 weeks+ until your exam. Last 10 days or so should be used to do online mocks/questions IMO so people can get used to the format of the exam, but practice is crucial so wouldn't hurt to have more resources

    This might sound like a really ridiculous question but how do you convert the raw marks into the actual scores? My test is in 3 days and I still have no clue where I'm at

    I think you can also do (% right x600) +300 for each section

    Hi - I know this has been asked before but I can't find it (I tried looking): Is the medify mock 1 meant to easy/hard/okay-ish? I just did it and didn't do too well...

    also, do people finish all the practice questions before doing the mocks or do you guys do the mocks in between? I've finished most of the practice questions and I'm a bit worried now 0.0
    I only have 8 days before my exam!
