    for those who have sat the exam already:
    1) where the AR patterns easy to spot?? where there a lot of conditional patterns? would you say that the questions were similar to the easy ones on medify or the harder ones?
    2) for QR, where there many pie chart questions? if so what kind, like relatively easy or not? how was this section in general??
    Ar patterns were easy to spot I didn't have many conditional patterns I'd say they were similar and easier than medify

    My QR was tough many multi step questions people were saying it was easy and it wasnt for me. If it was i wouldve gotyen above a 700 avg but oh well

    okay great... do you remember any patters that came up? x
    I got a few which were similar if not same as the ukcat mock on the website most of them were counting shapes honestly that was 80 percent of the section

    This is false. King's actually don't have a strict cut off point and they themselves have said they interviewed an applicant with a UKCAT score of 612 for 2016 entry Medicine.

    Would you say my chances of getting an interview for kings and Barts are good with a 665 avg and first predicted and a decent ps then?

    Based on what I've heard, you have a shot at getting an interview, but I don't know what score would put you in a "good" position to get an interview for GED.

    Honestly though try to perfect your PS because King's actually mark it. You don't want there to be any weaknesses in your application

    I was planning on GED but only if I got above 700 since I haven't i think I'll apply for the 5 year courses I shouldn't have too much of a problem then. Thanks!

    Oh I see. Never knew graduates could apply to the 5 year course; are the entry requirements the same for you as it is for school leavers/gap year students?

    Damn I was hoping QR wouldn't be too hard from people's comments but it seems recently the QR has been a nightmare and maybe the AR might be a bit easier than before. Just did UKCAT mock, i recognise a lot of the context from somewhere.... did UKCAT last year so dunno if it was from pratice back then. Anyways, despite recognising the QR Q's, they were so damn hard to do
