    Squishy where are you applying? And also what are your stats? I'm assuming you're doing BMAT from your other posts?

    No, they won't. The only people who will ever know them are those at Pearson.

    Just did the VR mini mock and got 630. That section is going to kill me in the exam itself, but I've done all I can I guess. Gonna take the day off tomorrow and hope for the best on Thursday.

    Good luck to anyone doing their exam tomorrow.
    I wish you all the best. Mine is on Tuesday.

    In the real exam, can you skip decision making? So you just do the other 2 sections straight away.

    No london unis i don't think. UCL are heavy on AS and imperial are on GCSEs.
    Try other places, besides two unis in london are bmat anyway
    but on imperials website for 2017 they said that they won't consider gcses??

    anyways what about kings and barts??

    Hello! English is my second language and I find VR quite difficult because of this. Does anyone please have any VR tips for UKCAT applicants whose mother tongue is not English?
    Thanks very much x

    I've got my UKCAT on Friday and I am terrified! Did the official mock A and B today and got an average score of 603 for A and 547 for B :cry2:
    Is there anything I can do to boost my score in a short amount of time? Thanks in advance for any advice x

    I completely understand you, I've been doing bad too and mine is tomorrow! All you can do is practice your weakest parts and do some insane time practice, you've most likely worked hard so there's little you can do now. Best of luck for Friday x

    I've got a similar ukcat score to you and I've been looking at plymouth, but the ukcat interim scores seems to be much higher than last year so I'm worried our overall ukcat scores may not meet the cut off (last year was 2610 which would be comparable to a 1960 score for this year and they have changed a lot during the years, for example one year it went up by 70... another by 110).
    imo i dont think the final ukcat average for this year will be significantly different to last, maybe slightly higher
    Im more worried about applying to manchester tbh i think our ukcat scores are close to the cutoff

    The mocks tend to be much harder so don't let this put you off!

    On Medify mocks I was getting 610-620 averages on all three and in the real thing I got 850 in QR and 710 overall! Don't worry, everyone does better in the real thing compared to mocks!
