    Hi. Just wanted to know what score people usually get while practising VR on Medify with the 40 questions setting. I can't seem to ever get more than 24 which is quite frustrating >.< Also, are the official UKCAT VR practice questions a representation of the real thing?
    I got around the same in medify as well. The official UKCAT VR is actually a bit easier compared to the original test cause the texts are a bit longer and some of the t/f/ct questions arent as straight forward in the real test.

    Damn should have used medify to revise for UKCAT. Everyone seems to use it and do well. I used free sources online and 1000 ukcat book to revise and did absolute horse sh•t.

    Hi everyone, I just did my UKCAT today.

    600-VR (was getting 700+ in the medify mocks and even got 770 in one of them so be careful as the real exam is a lot harder for VR)
    680-AR
    850-QR (LOL I have NO idea how I got this but it's dragged my score up a lot!!
    SJ-Band 2 (was getting band 1 in all medify mocks but there are a lot less questions per scenario in the real thing and so there are a lot more scenarios to read and less time to answer questions!)

    Total=2130
    Average=710!

    Good luck to all.

    I meant to say for AS, perhaps they did A-levels in one year?
    Yeah, probably something like that - but I'm not entirely sure. I should've asked lol

    Whoah my application gets sent off next week... Lucky you!

    I am sure you would be unique at Oxbridge haha. Your Scottish accent and 1st class degree from a great uni would be what you deserve

    I love my family but to mee once a month on a weekend is a fair bit. I would come back maybe every holiday period (October, December, April, Summer). Don't have much problem being away but I do still love them very much <3

    Oh wow! I never knew that for Edinburgh!!! If I lived away from home I would probs end up getting a house or something and living with some friends (either new ones or existing ones if they got in).

    I am applying for a 5th because I don't really want to do Medicine that much to apply again. ESPECIALLY NOT THE UKCAT! -_-

    But don't get me wrong, if you feel you could do well in BMAT and can leave home, go for it. Otherwise I would say it's going to be pretty hard to balance with school
    I would certainly be "unique" at Oxbridge lmao. And yeah maybe once a month is unrealistic... But what are you thinking for your fifth option I'm thinking of anatomy or neuroscience not sure though...XD

    If you have good grades, good ukcat score and good personal statement, then you should be fine and be receiving interview/s.

    I've been doing the mock UKCAT tests on the official UKCAT website and I have been getting very low scores, particularaly in the QR subtest (Highest average across all subtests has been 550, highest QR score 450) Are these mocks more difficult than the actual test or should I just practice more??

    You received the email already? Or are they just sending the deciles to the applicants who did well on the ukcat? 😂

    I got Band 4 in my situational judgement. Do i still have hope? should i still consider applying?
    If I were you, I would take the risk and apply!
    Remember, you've got nothing to lose!
    You can also take a gap year and apply next year if there is no positive outcome.
    Good luck with the rest of your application!
