    I contacted a uni if I had to adapt my application for my 5th option but they said that I should gear my application for and that it wouldn't affect anything. Find a course and email that uni about your plans they should let you know within a few days.

    heyy guys!!! for those who have done the test, how bad was the VR section??? i really am struggling and want to know if u have any advice
    It was hard but nothing out of the ordinary. If you've done your preparation and have a plan, it partly tests your mentality i believe. How you can keep calm under immense pressure and execute your plan. If you keep your nerves under control that is the biggest step when scoring high in VR.
    Also ensure your eyes can glide over sentences fast af, and still retain and understand the information in your head. Based on my personal experiences and UKCAT official advice (found on twitter), they said the best way to prepare is skim reading!
    Good luck!

    The official practice tests were ******** as they were ways to hard compared to real thing! However medify mocks were quite similar in difficulty i found, maybe medify was just SLIGHTY harder. I was getting around 500-700 in official UKCAT mocks and around 860 in medify mocks and i got 890 in the real thing where i guessed 4 questions!

    Well done for the amazing score!!
    I don't have medify unfortunately but could you please give a sample question from the real thing?? Maybe the hardest one?? Mine's on Thursday and I'm just so worried. Apparently QR's got simple questions like: What's half of x? but I'm still worried...
    Thanks for all the help

    Honestly QR will be fine, just keep practicing and know the formulas, I got 600-650 in pretty much all my mocks and came out with 780! My advice is don't go in thinking QR is hard as you'll panic like in VR, but don't go in thinking it's easy as you still need to be 100% focused and ready for anything! I think going along what happened with me and quite a few others anyway, you'll get 650 maybe more? Just a guess though. Genuinely nothing changed for me on the day and fingers crossed it will be fine for you too!

    Hey don't feel bad! I was in your shoes less than week ago so I know how it feels! Well see that's a good thing then just apply to your strengths ( so PS uni's) and if your ukcat score is good then that's an additional strength you'll be absolutely fine and I can't wait for you to get your score as I'm really rooting for you!😋

    Did anyone else get an e-mail from UKCAT reminding us to let them know our university choices?
    It went through my spam filter and I'm not certain if it's legit?

    EDIT: I think it's legit. I also saw the email saying about interim results in my spam box...

    It doesn't fit in place. It doesn't follow the pattern of either set, hence why it is neither.
    Sorry I shouldve been more clear. I just dont see how the pieces form a 4 by 4 square or a 5 by 5 l shape. Ignore the question on the right hand side, i just dont see the pattern in the sets.

    Definitely not spam as they said earlier on they would contact us towards the end of testing to remind us to submit our choices.

    you would've gotten 607 in the real thing
