    Sounds like a plan. Top tip, don't stress out too much Just have a look at what needs more work and prioritise it and polish it up using medify. It's a great tool.

    I did OK. I was a bit ill and got a bad VR but was fine otherwise.
    VR: 680
    QR:850
    AR:690
    SJ: Band 2 :/
    Avg: 740
    Thats pretty damn good lol especially that QR 850. I was a bit worried about medify QR since the questions took a while to read as they had long paras and stuff VR is my main weakness too. Goodluck on your med school applications.

    Congrats and I hope you feel better now. How did you manage that for VR? When I see the long questions I switch off. :/

    Guys are there any unis that credit/value A* predictions/achieved grades at a2.

    I've achieved A*A* A at a2. But I have a further C at as level :/. Haven't don't he ukcat yet, I've got it coming up next week. But I've been averaging out at around 670 band 2. My gcse: 6.5A* 5A.

    I'd appreciate any help/tips. Also if anyone has a a medify account/subscription that they're not using anymore bc they've done their test, is it possible to share it with me? I'm not expecting anyone to say yes, but it was worth a try bc im running out of material and still struggling.
    Check each university's requirements for A levels and if they want a B in the AS subject that you dropped then don't apply to it. There are Unis that accept a C I believe

    Q1) The passages were long and obscure (to me anyway) I scored 600, which is just above half right. Most the passaes were 3 - 4 paragraphs long.
    Q2) QR questions were easy but really long.
    Q3) I got band 3 for SJ which is about 50% right i think. To get band 2, you'd need about 65 -75%
    What do you mean by 'long' for qr, please elaborate, long working out or long paragraphs

    Is anyone else finding the QR section in the medify mocks difficult? I find the calculations quite long and always run out of time.

    I think they get released once everyone's done the exam so should be early october if I'm not mistaken

    For t/f/ct questions I ALWAYS read the question first so I knew exactly what to look out for. For the other type, I skim read the whole passage and made a mental note of where everything was and went from there.

    A bit vague, I know, but I didn't think too much about it

    Hope that helps.

    You just need to not get too overwhelmed by the amount of data coming at you. For the t/f/ct questions I read the question first and for the other type, I skim-read the whole passage and took note of where everything was and went from there.

    Hope that helps you.

    Each mini mock is the same amount of time allocated for each section i.e 22 minutes for VR, 14 minutes for AR etc 😊

    Is QR a lot easier in the real thing compared to medify?? And how hard is AR compared to medify??

    Does anyone have good and free UKCAT practice tests? I have already practiced from a book and done the ones on the UKCAT website.

    Do we all have the same questions? I thought it's different for everyone bc there's a bank of questions.
