    If been predicted A2 in a subject then that tariff gets counted towards not the AS. Then the music and etc.

    Guys the southampton cut-off is wrong on this thread, they rank candidates according to their ukcat, last year's lowest scoring candidate was 640, so the cut-off is not 705.

    I didn't invest in medify (which I kind of regret) if I end up with no offers then I'm going to invest in that next time round. But yeah the comparison was with the offical mocks. My number one tip is to improve your timing. I didn't have enough time to answer many of the questions adequately.
    Thanks, I find Edinburgh scary because people always say you need >700 to go there but I mean it's worth a shot, right? In which case I'll patch St. Andrews and apply for the other four. Btw thank you so much - I've literally been staring at the ceiling for 3 hours trying to figure out what to do... No one knows what's going on. In my family no one understand the scoring system and I tried asking for help at school but I basically got told to phone the unis up aka "leave me alone" XD
    Hey, still well done. Honestly if you can't get it this time, definitely get Medify next year. It will encourage you to practice your timing as well.

    I am either going far up north or south. London is too expensive and crowded and highly competitive. If you want to save some money then go somewhere out of London. It is preferable to live out and learn to cope by yourself than just depending on your parents. Getting into a London uni is a nightmare. my friend from the year above tried to get into a London Uni and she failed first time round due to the unbelievable amount of competition

    My test is on the 27th. Been practicing using the Kaplan book, 1000Q's, UKCATNinja and Medify. I'm very optimistic this year as I have learned that quality over quantity is key in this test.

    UCL is the most attractive in London in terms of uni life and education. others are okayyyyy, but might as well go to somewhere cheaper than an expensive area when the uni life and education is similar

    Is this your second time sitting the test? if so what did you get the 1st time if you don't mind me asking? and how did you spend your gap year?
