    Thank you so much for your comments!! I did the entire 1000q book a month before but found it to be a bit too hard really and I plowed through it unhappily and just for the sake of getting to the end. The mock in it was also a lot harder than the day. So for a couple of weeks I did 1.5 - 2hrs a day of this and other various technique learning from last year's Kaplan course book that someone lent to me (I'm very particular and time every second I revise on a timer, any breaks aren't included in the time because I feel that's not a true indication of the work I've done haha). Then with two - three weeks to go I upped it to 3hrs+ day and signed up to Medify - completed every single question in every category almost before doing mocks. Completing all the practice questions on this took me about a week and a bit so then for the last few days before the test I just struggled around to find resources and redid some old questions!! But 860/900 on AR was a huge surprise, it seems pretty high!! When's yours?
    Oh and also, as an indication, I think I revised for around 60 hours completely by the clock over the course of just under a month, and then maybe + 10 hours general introduction before this.

    wow that's amazing stuff! Mine is in 11 days and I only started going over stuff a few days ago... (I know I shouldn't have left it this late but my dad was in hospital for sometime and so I couldn't actually do any work ) I've done the vr section from the isc book and going to go through the questions on medify. I'm planning to do 7-10 hours a day before my test.. do you think this will be enough? Also do you have any tips with regards to the different sections at all? Thanks in advance!!*

    Hey don't worry about having a short time left. I've spoken to many who had around 2 weeks too and they got great scores. They just managed to revise many hours a day!

    You still have plenty of time!! 7 - 10 hours a day may be a bit excessive but if you think you need it and can handle it, why not?

    Do you know how to pm on this and you can ask me whatever questions you want? Saves me writing such big responses here!

    I agree; as long as practice is attempted in some way, shape, or form!

    Oh, and I'm sorry to hear about your dad; I understand it's hard to revise at such a time. But now you're here and clearly willing to give it a great go, and so that's brilliant!

    I hope he's better now/will be very soon.

    Well, I finally sat my UKCAT yesterday and I am surprised beyond words with the result!

    VR - 650
    QR - 750
    AR - 860
    SJ - Band One

    So pleased with that; is it considered to be a good score?
    That is an amazing score! Well done mate hard work pays off. 60+ hours... You deserve it!

    Hi I sat my UKCAT today and I did well;

    VR:550 (Really hard for me, computer was like 28" and text was squished vertically and stretched horizontally,dpmo)
    QR:830 (Kinda easy, skipped two sets and some questions)
    AR:820 (Nice patterns for me aha)
    SJT: Band 2 (Dont be complacent, they bombard you with chunky paragraphs and only ask two questions, dpmo, I was left with time (3mins) to check my answers up to half way I reckon)

    Average:733.33

    Im a Gap Year student wanting to study Dentistry;
    GCSE's: 1A* 10A 2B (Eng Lang)
    Alevel A*AA Maths,Bio,Chem respectively

    where can I apply?
    Thanks
    Amazing score buddy!!!! That is absolutely stunning! I have no doubt a smart guy like you will get in now, I really hope you do!

    I'm a hopeful medic.

    How similar was each individual section of Medify compared to exam? Was Medify more similar or official mocks? And lastly, what scores roughly were you getting on medify if you don't mind me asking?

    Sorry, just so worried because I am aiming for 700 yet got 552 in a practice and literally ended up in tears :'(


    Great stuff though once again!!!!

    all the patterns I know are from;
    medify
    uckat practice mocks
    ukcat ninja
    600 ukcat book

    I learnt the acronym SSSPN, Size, Shape, Shade, Position, Number and then remember an extra few such as rotations, angles and the list goes on but its the ones you dont remember which is what you should write down!
    If I got Kaplan and did the 3 mocks from there would that be a good substitute for the ukcat ninja do you think?
