    If I got Kaplan and did the 3 mocks from there would that be a good substitute for the ukcat ninja do you think?
    ukcat ninja is free, dont pay for it

    Is the quant on UKCAT ninja similar to the real thing?
    UKCAT Ninja has easy questions but in the actual exam I got two questions of similar difficulty (easy), however no d=sxt questions ffs. Still do them though, revise ratios, pie charts, averages, percentage change, and simple algebra, my questions incorporated all of those!!!

    Its all about pacing yourself. The more you practice, the faster you'll get. Do as many as you can and guess the rest right at the end especially for VR. But know when to skip hard questions. No point wasting time on a hard question when you can easily do an easier one.

    For VR i skipped to the t/f/ct questions and then did the rest, so I know i score some easy marks

    I did my test yesterday and got 693 average.

    VR: 500. The passages weren't any longer than medify for me but just had more paragraphs. Initially, I used the reading the question first and scanning for keywords approach during my practice but later got convinced into skimming the passages really quickly with alright comprehension and hoping for the best as I thought most of the questions were inference questions without any keywords. I was wrong obviously and should have used the former approach in hindsight. I was getting around 550 - 670 in mocks.

    QR: 720. I was expecting QR to be straightforward and way easier from comments here but that was not the case for me at all. I'm pretty good at maths so I got 720 but they were not easy and I had to guess loads. I was getting around the same score in mocks.

    AR: 860. Yeah really easy, there was only one set that I didn't manage to get which I subsequently skipped. I still had about 4 minutes to check all of the other questions tho. I was getting around 700 -750 in mocks.

    SJT: Band 1. very easy. Read the good medical practice and just know stuff.

    Not sure if it will be at all helpful but I have Medify for 3 more days which is just going to waste. I've done all the mocks but If you want the account to practice please PM me.
    Your AR score is insane lol. Medify are killing me with their patterns ffs. Hope the actual exam isn't as bad.

    Ah fair enough. Cos on medify they often have those weird patterns with like 5/6 different conditions that throw you, like "odd number of shapes, more black than white, triangle and quadrilateral present and circle is striped" or something like that 😂, congrats on your score once again

    Hi

    How much would you recommend revising a day before the actual exam if the exam is in the morning the next day and you have the whole previous day. I have a 1 medify mock and 2 UKCAT mocks left. What would be a good option in your opinion?
    It's up to you really?
    My exam was at 9:45 so I left a mock to do during this time on the day before the test. Then I spent the rest of the day reading over the notes I had created and going over strategies for each section. I had one more mock to do so I ended up doing that as well.
    In the morning of test day, I did some speed reading on the computer to warm up my brains. lol

    Nice!

    I am so screwed for Abstract! Please help with that section at all?

    Well done! Any advice on AR?

    I did lots of practice for AR and wrote down all of the new pattern that I saw. Just like that, I could then be able to see most of the patterns straightaway with intuition.

    The patterns that I couldn't see straight away were those where you had to count obscure things like angles, points, black as 2 - white as 1, etc. or where there was lots of distractions, I noticed. So whenever I was stuck I would look out for these things. For the latter with distractions, I found it useful to pick a shape and see if that shape is found in all of the boxes, then continue on. Often there are patterns like, there is always X and Y shapes present, ignore everything else.

    Hope that helps. If you don't get something just skip it, coming back with fresh eyes could be useful.

    Did my UKCAT this morning and I got 667 average, 2000 altogether

    VR - 700 - I was quite surprised about how easy VR had been for me because everyone said VR was crazy hard in the real thing but it was always my strongest point and in mocks I got about 670 - 700 - the texts were far shorter than on medify and I had about 3 T/F/CT questions and I did feel as it was easy when doing it.

    QR - 670 - Again, was surprised because everyone said it was easier in the real thing and that clearly hasn't been reflected....I didn't get any hard questions per se, but I had a lot of multistep questions and ended up having to guess most of them because I was short on time.

    AR - 630 - not surprised, had always been my weakest section and in the real thing, I couldn't guess about 75% of the rules and guessed.

    I'm just glad it's over and done with but now it means I can't apply to Glasgow but ah well.

    Hi guys,

    UKCAT: 1990 (663.3 avg.) Band 2
    2.1 in biological science-related degree

    Does anyone know how useful this might be when applying?

    Thinking of applying for the 5 year course.
    Also how might this rank up applying for the 4 year GEM course?

    I'm thinking Barts and Southampton.
    Are there any other universities where this score might be okay?

    Thanks for your help!

    Any help is appreciated.
    Practice, practice, practice - and focus on your weaknesses, don't waste time practicing stuff you're good at and while other people's reviews of the UKCAT should be considered, focus on yourself because I ended up having a good VR and a terrible QR when the opposite happened to most people.

    I didn't revise for my exam on the day mainly because it was at 8:00am but I do have friends who had theirs at like 5pm and they didn't revise on the day either, you don't want to drain yourself but maybe refresh yourself of formulas for QR and common patterns in AR

    Hello!

    Sat my UKCAT today, got the following scores:

    820 Verbal
    750 Quantitative
    650 Abstract

    Then messed up completely with SJT, somehow came out with band 4. No idea what happened, had been averaging safe band 2 at least in mocks.

    What does this mean for me? My average was 740, so pretty strong, but my SJT band messed all that up. Do they cancel each other out? I'm trying to work out my options at the minute, any help is much appreciated, thanks!

    Same here, I did the UKCAT AR questions for practice because medify was annoying me, and they seemed so much easier than medify but they were probably weren't 😂
