    Hi!! I sat the UKCAT today at 8:45 and would love a few suggestions regarding where is best to apply and avoid in regards to my score:

    VR-640
    QR-800
    AR-620
    STJ- Band 1

    I initially intended to apply to Cardiff, Birmingham, Newcastle and Liverpool. Would you say these are sensible choices regarding my average? I'm happy with my results considering I went in expecting failure due to my inability to believe in myself and just want to maximise my chances of getting into medical school this year so I don't have to resit the wretched thing🙃

    Is a two week subscription to medify good enough to improve my skills?
    yess! Medify is really good and you can get a lot done in two weeks.

    In the real exam, is it possible to get partial (1/2) marks for SJ? So if the correct answer was C, and you clicked D, would you get 1/2 marks?
    Thanks

    Yes. If you got the correct answer you would get 4 marks but if you were one place away, you would get 3 marks. If you were two places away, you would get 2 marks.

    Do you know if the marking scheme is more lenient in the actual exam compared to medify? I read earlier in the thread that people who were getting band 2 on average usually got band 1?

    Do you know how you figure out what your UKCAT score is from percentages? For example for Abstract reasoning i am on 66% on Medify and was wondering how I change this to a UKCAT score (as in 600/700) ??

    cut off scores in november, ukcat average scores released early october so those averages will give you an idea of how well you've done
