    I haven't taken my test yet but since it's urgent I'll help as best I can. So I've been reading this thread a lot and apparently the QR is a lot easier in the real thing and your QR in mocks is looking fine I'm sure you'll improve with the real thing. As for VR all you can do now is relax and know you've practiced as hard as you can. VR has been hard for pretty much everyone it seems, so best thing to do tomorrow is to remain calm and not panic as that will use up your time. Have faith in yourself and always flag time the hard ones and that alone will help you so much! I'm sure you'll do fine just try and relax and have a bath etc!

    For people that have done their UKCAT test, is the AR section harder/easier/same as the official UKCAT mocks. I'm only asking these bc people say that the QR section is easier in the real thing.
    AR is easier than official mocks, there's more partial patterns.
    QR is easier
    VR is considerably harder.

    Yes, in so much as UKCAT goes you will be able to apply for any of the UKCAT schools with that. Well done!*

    Hi all, I've seen some people say that UKCAT ninja is a good representation of the level of QR questions in the exam. Would you agree?

    VR was definitely the hardest section. Make sure you scan it well and look for qualifiers like "always, must, not, can't". Also, read the question first and then scan the paragraph
    DM was actually quite interesting; I liked it. Not relevant though since we dont get the score
    QR was reasonably good. Wasn't too bad, just brush up on percentages and ratios
    AR went really well for me, just remember the SCAN rule (Shape, Colour, Arrangement and Number)
    SJT was the same as usual

    Just remember to remain calm and relaxed otherwise you'll find it every difficult to focus.

    Hey guys i need your help a.s.a.p!!!

    QR 740
    AR 640
    VR 540
    Average: 640
    SJ: Band 2

    I ran out of time on VR and AR, hence the low score. I'm applying as a gap year student. Do you think i will have a chance with Plymouth and Exeter for Medicine with these UKCAT results?

    Mock C was my worse one out of all of the mocks they had getting around 640 on VR and barely reaching 600s on AR and QR, I kinda used the UKCAT 1000 questions mark scheme to calculate what I could have potentially gotten (by no means is it an accurate method but I just used it just cause xD). SJT was really easy I felt in all of the mocks as well.

    Compared to the mocks the real test felt like; VR was harder slightly, QR was easier/ more manageable, I almost got to the end within the time limit and AR was pretty easy, compared to the ones in the 1000 Qs book. SJT didnt seem much different.
