    Soooo... I bought complete med guide from their website and 1000q book. Had a flick through ukcat bit for med guide and its really good, its got a lot of helpful tips so I'd say it's worth it especially since it's cheap.

    Just waiting on 1000q from Amazon to be delivered and hope it helps just as much hopefully since it should also have a lot of tips but I feel a lot more confident now anyway and I seem to be doing better in my practise questions now.

    Thanks a lot for the help dude/dudette.
    No prob.

    Glad you liked it. I found that all it takes is looking at questions the right way and you'll start doing better. It's about your mindset. Right now Im relatively calm but lets see how that goes when I'm a few days out!!!

    I got:

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

    Where do I lie in terms of thresholds?? Are there universities that have requirements for the UKCAT greater than this?? I intend on applying to Cardiff, Newcastle, Birmingham and Liverpool. I know Cardiff isn't too UKCAT heavy, and apparently neither is Birmingham. I have 10 A*s at GCSE, AAAA at AS and predicted A*A*A* at A level in maths, bio and chem.
    Cardiff and Birmingham are good options. Newcastle your UKCAT may be slightly too low. Liverpool is good, but they give the same score for A's and A*s. Because your GCSE's are excellent, you may be better applying to somewhere which gives A*'s more points than an A, such as Leicester, because essentially you will gain the same credit as someone with 9A's. Obviously if you really like Liverpool then apply. Your UKCAT, GCSE's and predicted grades are excellent so you have plenty of choices. By the way, your predicted grades are excellent for Exeter, they give interviews based on how many A* predictions as far as I am aware. I think you would have a very strong chance of an interview.

    Well done!! Don't worry about the band 3, I think most unis have a cut off of band 4 anyway so you should be alright

    I know Cardiff barely weigh in UKCAT, but St Georges and Kings are quite UKCAT heavy I think

    Apparently national stats come out tomorrow

    Does anyone know whether Leicester look at SJT, I achieved 773 with Band 3 and I wanna apply to Manchester Leicester Cardiff and Southampton.
    On Leicester's website it says sjt MIGHT be used as an interview station thing, does anyone know the likelihood of this?

    Little bit risky, but I'd go for it depending on averages

    When I did medify I got a band 3. Same as what I actually got.
    But in the Kaplan one I got band 2.

    Hey everyone!
    I've been doing UKCAT practice exams (on the website) and have averaged around 70% for AR and VR and 60% for QR, roughly what kind of score is that?
    I'm hoping to apply for GEM so need quite a high score 😊
