    get 3 predicted A's and you are fine. You must covert those C's to A's next year to meet your offer. If not consider applying as a graduate or go abroad (i believe the entry requirement for prague uni is CCC)

    Aw thank you so much! I'm sure you are improving! I think it becomes easier to look for patterns after a while obvs not for every set, but you have an idea of what stands out the more you practice. I say this and I wouldn't be surprised if AR messed me over and I got 550 lol 😂 I think for all 3 of us whatever score we get in AR will be a surprise 😂

    Yeah I think it will be a surprise. Either a good one or horrible one!

    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
    Definitely Pharmacy for me as a back up.

    I probably will end up doing that because this UKCAT is just pulling me down :'(

    That's a great back-up btw personally I have more interest in bodily functions and dissections - which is distasteful but I find it interesting so that's why I would go down the more academic route.

    Honestly, the number 1 worst thing you could be doing right now is freaking out - which I have to say I spent a lot of time doing and I didn't get what I wanted. Spend loads of time on AR because patterns you notice whilst practising some of them WILL come up. So this section could significantly improve your score as there are only a limited amount of patterns that come up and if you remember these then you'll find the section easy. For VR I did **** in this but that's because I freaked out take your time with this and make sure you read the question carefully. For quantative reasoning it was like Nat 5 maths except really time constraint so make sure you JUST work on the timing for this because for this section I didn't really find anything tough I just ran out of time - to such an extent I had to basically guess the last 15 questions. SJ you'll manage this I'm sure it's worth reading the general medical practise document and you'll easily get a 1 or 2. Hope this helped.

    Me too ngl. AND MINE IS IN A WEEK!!!!!

    Seriously, just don't stress and don't go in thinking what people have said (eg QR is much easier as that can impact you). Not to scare you but my friend got 520 in the QR, as you can imagine, he was pissed.

    So good luck, come of TSR and do what you can now

    Make sure to update us tomorrow!!!

    you can apply for foundation medicine courses. Kings has a foundation medicine degree which requires AAA-BBB and my friend got an offer last year of ABB so you have a chance. St Georges also have a lower entry requirement of AAB. But to be eligible for these courses, you need to meet specific requirements e.g. low income, first in family to go on to higher education.

    If you're okay with moving outside London, Southampton and Northampton have foundation medicine degrees with BBC entry requirements.

    I emailed Kings to see if i was eligible for their course but because my school isn't in greater london i'm not eligible so that's out of the question i don't fit the other criteria aswell (

    i don''t really know where else i can apply thats in london
