    Well trust me when i say this mine is probably one of the worst one out there. BAND 4 ON SITUATIONAL JUDGEMENT. (and apparently only psychopaths get band 4). All other sections 580s except for QR which i struggled most on before but got 620 which is still garbage i know but it was my best section. The thing that pisses me of the most is that i used to get minimum band 2 every mock i did on Situational judgement and then i completely screw it up in an actual exam.
    I got Band 4 aswell!

    When I do my test if I do decent then I'll be sure to post on here my mock scores, but at the minute they mean nothing as I've heard from pretty much everyone on this thread that mocks are harder than the real thing but in general I've been getting anywhere between 600-700. AR 64.4%, QR 61.1%, SJT 62.8%, VR 71.5% (some timed and some untimed but I've completed every stem). Hope this helps, you've got plenty of time to revise anyway.

    See for VR was it mostly T/F/CT or the type 2.

    A month, and yes I skim read too! I'm actually gonna have a little practice now at reading the passages on UKCAT Ninja just in case the questions are dreadful tomorrow ☺️

    Recently sat my UKCAT and got:
    VR: 530 (lol)........was always bad at this, was getting 570ish in the mocks, the texts were not insanely long but so hard to understand as it was mainly on 16th century history and politics in different countries
    QR: 890.....was getting about 850ish in the mocks, tbh people say it was so easy but it really wasn't, it was just standard. Don't get complacent for this section, my mate came out with 600. It was a tad easier then medify. Overall just be quick at understanding the data and you'd be fine.
    AR: 860.....found it quite easy, the same difficulty as medify. I guessed 5 questions in total as i couldn't figure out 1 set. Just remember scans. There were a lot of annoying sequences questions too about 6-7 i would say.
    SJT: band 1

    Nice score!
    Did you get loads of data questions or not? What were the type of qs in QR??
    How were the patterns in AR, were they complexed and were there lots of Set A/B Questions or were there lots of complete the series/this is that so what is this to that?
    Thanks

    did you apply scans in each set and get a definite answer?? x

    Yes lots of data for QR: pie charts ( 8 questions) bar chars (MANY questions ) it was all data tbh.
    For AR there was roughly 45 set A/B questions out of 55. there was 10 of serious and this is to this so was is that equal to.Patterns same difficulty as medify one pattern was number of enclosed spaces and i was just like yeah baby!!!!
    Having sat this exam twice i would say it is:60% ability (which almost all of us have)20% strategy (for e.g for VR just make sure you know what you are gonna do, i skipped long passages and concentrated mainly on the T/F/CT, this worked the best for me)20% mental (Take deep breathes (or breaths????) at the start to slow you heart rate down and remove anxiety, trust me last year i was SOOOOO nervous for the VR section, i couldn't read the passages and take in and retain in. So its crucial you keep control of your nerves!)
    Good Luck!

    Does anyone know if you get certain number of T/F questions and type 2 questions or is it random?

    When you say 45 set A/B do you mean A, B, neither? or actually A/B because I can't do those ones at all 😂
