    Don't worry. You have a very god UKCAT score and since you are gap year I am assuming you will have **** load of extra stuff. You are sorted. Good luck. Where are you applying btw

    So my ukcat is officially done with and I couldn't be more relieved.
    I got
    VR- 590 (lmao)
    QR-780
    AR- 630
    SJT- band 1!!!!!
    Average: 667.
    Thank you so much to everyone on this thread, I am so grateful for all the help and well wishes everyone gave me 😘😋
    Advice:
    VR: don't underestimate this section I ran out of time as questions were honestly so hard, I got quite a few true or false can't tell though but wouldn't say they helped much.
    QR: so much easier than any mock I'd done, some questions were so simple I wondered if it was correct what I was doing but some were still difficult which I just flagged and guessed.
    AR- found this hard as there were lots of partial patterns compared to simple ones, I'd say I got about 45 set A. I was never that good at AR and I had to guess about ten shapes lol.
    Good luck to anyone who still has to take their test! After VR even though it was hard, I calmed down massively as I got so focused in the test It distracted me from how I was feeling. Use the DM section to make notes ready for QR and AR. As you can see I only got a band 1 once in my mocks and in the real exam I finished 8 mins early for SJT as I thought I know I won't get a band 1 but anything above a band 4 is okay (I also knew I would start doubting my answers so I finished early which id advise everyone to do for SJT but I got a band 1 can't believe it!! SJT was alright but there were a lot of passages to read compared to the ones in my mocks.
    These were my mock scores. I hope it helps someone. Attachment 581890

    Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee and at Andrews. My dream is Edinburgh but think that's a bit too unrealistic but hopefully in with a shot for the others, you?

    Aberdeen, Dundee. Since my B is chemistry I don't know if St andrews is a good idea. Plus I don;t have great UKCAT. I got 650 and I don't know if I should go for Edinburgh. I'd be happy to get in anywhere though

    Thank you! Well done on yours too! Haha that's quite funny that we got the same 😂 I'm thinking Manchester and Liverpool. My GCSEs are 5 a stars, 3 a's , 1 b so it restricts me a bit and I'm not doing BMAT. I'm considering St George's, keele maybe, I don't know I've got to research everywhere now and try and see where my strengths are, what about you?

    Yay well done and congratulations! That's a really good score 😊. I've been following your posts for a while, in the non creepiest way 👀 haha, just that I'm literally as stressed as you were and you were asking loads of questions I needed the answers too 😂. Bet it's such a relief now, week today and I'll be free as well 😎.

    Thank you! I was considering Exeter but I am predicted A*A*A and apparently last year tier 2 wasn't even looked at so I think I'll end up getting a pre interview rejection.

    I know last year Manchester wanted 650 so I hope I make it this year as I absolutely love Manchester!its a risk but tbh I'm limited anyway with what uni's I can apply to so I think I'll take it. I'll have to look into Plymouth as don't they use sub section scores for ukcat?
