    I have a few questions Is it worth buying the UKCAT Ninja susbcription? i only have 9 days left till my exam. I have used up all my medify questions apart from the mocks. I have some of the 600 question book left to finish and 2 UKCAT mocks left. Also what do you think i should do in these last 9 days build up to the exam? i manage to get 60% of the AR right, 70% of VR and 60% of QR on the prarctice tests
    I only just did my UKCAT this week, so I'm not a very experienced source, but I would suggest doing the bits you find hardest in the exam and polish your timing up so that there won't be any nasty surprises on the day. Also, ease up a bit on the practice a few days before the exam so that you aren't sick to death of the UKCAT questions. I'll also add that you may not want to bother looking at the percentages too much (if you're using the medify stats at least) as they are very dependent upon the questions you'll get on the day. For example, I got 74% avg on the medify VR, which was my highest scoring section, but on the day it was my lowest (680).

    Hope this helps!

    Sorry for the late reply! I would definitely recommend it personally, it was really beneficial and I feel was the best representation of the actual UKCAT exam this year. I would start doing mocks by spacing them out throughout your last nine days.

    Hey! Can you provide the list of patterns that you made?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    The best practice is going through the patterns and making the list yourself, since then you can include the ones that you are not sure about and all the ones that you found most difficult; personalizing your revising.

    Got 653 average in the mock.
    VR: 630
    QR: 600
    AR: 730

    Wasn't very representative I don't think, however, I could be wrong because to be completely honest all the mocks and what they were like have kind of all mushed up after doing so many.

    If you dont mind me asking, which schools actually don't look heavily at GCSE's and A-Levels?
    Applying as a graduate I'm applying to Newcastle who don't look, Warwick who don't look and queen Mary who require B in chemistry and biology if your degree doesn't have aspects of them both but they have degree checker which my degree of adult nursing doesn't require back up so won't look either. Pretty sure Cardiff don't either but they do bmat I think

    Thanks for replying! Congrats on your actual score btw - it was amazing.
    How many mocks did you do in total?

    Is a 610 average good enough for Bristol. I'm really struggling with deciding for universities.

    Hey a couple of questions,

    -I just completed medify mock 1 and achieved an average score of 720, how similar is this mock to the real thing?

    -Also this is probably a stupid question lol, but are people actually answering any of the questions in the decision making section? I know that it's not getting marked so I'm planning on completely skipping it, but I was just curious as to whether or not people were answering the questions...

    Hey!

    Anyone care to share how they did in VR? I think that seemed to be the downfall for most, so would like to get an idea of what the averages might be like (even though TSR isn't that representative I know). It might give people a better idea of whether to apply to Warwick or not...

    Also, does anyone know when the interim scores are being released?

    Can I ask if unis look at one section over the others more or less? I'm pleased with my verbal and quant but slightly worried about my abstract (630) so I'm hoping they care about it the least. Thank you

    Some unis have certain cut off points for each section in which you have to meet the requirements for you to be able to move onto the next stage, others don't really mind unless you do really badly in one section, but most look at your average score or your scores added up together and ranked into deciles

    Hey,

    just wondering what do you guys find to be the best technique for verbal reasoning? I'm finding it soooo hard to answer the questions within the time limit :'(((

    I've found the deciles and averages for the past 5 years if you're wondering and wanted to compare your results?

    I'd say it's roughly similar to the actual exam, but the actual is way more easier and you do get to finish all the questions. You will definitely get a higher score in the real exam than in the medify mock.

    My mock was really bad aha,
    VR: 550
    QR: 600
    AR: 730
