    I did my UKCAT test today and got:

    VR - 570
    AR - 690
    QR - 650
    SJ - Band 2 (average - 636)

    I was really hoping to apply to The University of Manchester but I'm not too sure now, any advice?

    Well done on your score! I got 667 and I'm still applying although I believe it to be a little risky. Here are previous cut offs in yellow for Manchester. Last year Liverpool wanted 625 so try there if you have an amazing PS!Name:  ImageUploadedByStudent Room1474995555.078282.jpg

    do you know where I should apply to
    If I were you I would apply to Aberdeen and Dundee as chances are decent there but I only have good knowledge of Scottish unis. I know unis like EAST Anglia and Liverpool are pretty lenient I considered them for a while. My UKCAT is on average 617 - wayyyyyyyyyyy lower than yours - I'm applying for Glasgow (<1% chance of getting but I'm going to apply anyway), Edinburgh (another risk), Aberdeen (consider all ukcat scores and therefore, I have a better chance there) and Dundee (another risk but I have better chances here than Edinburgh or Glasgow). I'm not expecting any offers this year tbh I would say >630 is safe so you have a decent shot. All the best. Disclaimer: I might be talking BS XD

    Did my UKCAT. Second time. Only did better by 8 points. Terrible.*

    VR 580
    QR 640
    AR 650

    I didn't manage my time well. I was rushing and guessing a lot especially for QR. QR wasn't difficult but I fell into the trap of spending too much time on some questions.

    AR was ok but I couldn't get some patterns so I ended up guessing.

    VR has long passages and asks complex questions.

    All I can say is key in this test is time management. Be smart. Flag and don't spend too much time on some of the questions especially for QR.*

    I'm applying for GEM so I need a score of at least 700. I am not as disheartened as I was last year. Will try my luck doing the GAMSAT for March. *
    Can I ask if you did any mocks and what you were getting in them if you remember? I'm also applying to GEM and have sat the test before. I think I'm also going take the GAMSAT if the test does not go well but its not calming my nerves at all.

    Hey Guys,

    I'm doing my UKCAT on thursday and am feeling pretty nervous for it really, I don't think I'll get the best of grades really. Coupled with predicted grades of AAB, I'm struggling really with what options I have left. I've been given a predicted grade of a B in french as I have to resit an exam. What should I do?

    I went to Liverpool open day and they said they consider people with AAB predictions iirc

    If you are a partners applicant then Newcastle could still remain an option 😋 you'll just have to ring them and see! I really need to ring uni's up tomorrow and get my life together 😂

    I knew you would do really good! I don't know much about GEM but your score sounds decent (about my target)

    Hmmm looks like a few people messed up today.

    I feel as if the scores are dropping.
