    Hey guys,

    Just got 643 in my ukcat which I'm not overly happy about, I'm aware this is the current average.
    I'm going to be applying to Scottish university's I got 5As at higher and have 4 predicted As for s6. Was wondering if it's still worth applying and if so which university's would I have a chance?

    I cant recall my mock on the UKCAT official website; I only did one. but they were not very flush scores. What I will say is that the VR on UKCAT is a better represtation in terms of text size than Medify.
    awesome..thank u x

    Hey guys I just did my ukcat today.
    VR 580
    QR 780
    AR 590
    Band 2
    Its really not that great and I'm a bit upset even thought I got a 650 average which was much better than my score last yr ( I'm taking a gap year).
    My a-levels were A*A*A
    Can u please help me with uni choices? Dont think I can apply to Plymouth but is Exeter worth a try?
    Please help. Do most unis look at the average or the full breakdown?
    I was thinking of applying to Sheffield and Cardiff.
    Many thanks

    QR- 680
    AR- 600

    623 average

    Devastated, I can still apply for Keele which I'm glad about but I really don't know where else to apply anymore

    Why don't you try UEA, Liverpool? You would be good here. Maybe look into Hull-york but you could be a bit too weak there. Keele also seems wise. Bristol will be good if your personal statement is excellent, it makes up 70% of your application. Finally, if you are predicted 2, but preferably 3, A* then Exeter. Unfortunately I cant think of any other choices other than BMAT after you have looked into these unis.

    Anybody know how ruthless different unis will be if you get a band 3 in SJ?
    Which unis regard it as higher and which unis won't mind if you have band3?
    As I said, looking at Sheffield Manchester Nottingham Leicester.
    Will any of these disregard me because I got band 3 in SJ even tho I got 693 on average?

    Finally sat the dreaded thing today. Really pissed off if I have to be honest:

    VR: 560
    QR: 690
    AR: 600
    SJT: Band 2

    Average = 617


    Really pissed off. It's not a bad score and I am grateful that it's better than my mocks, but I am really upset that I missed my target score of 700 avergae by MILES. I practiced sooo much. The resources for those interested that I used were:
    - Kaplan 'score higher on UKCAT' book
    - Official Mocks A,B,C
    - Medify (ALL practice questions and ALL ocks etc)
    - ISC 1000Q book including the mock
    - Kaplan online practice test bundle, mocks A,B,C
    - UKCAT Ninja
    - Blackstone Tutors workbook from course
    - UKCAT for Dummies (briefly)
    - How to Master UKCAT (briefly)
    Would like to say these resources helped but clearly didn't get me what I wanted. The real thing was probably most similar to the Kaplan Book for the QR, Official Mocks for AR, VR Medify.

    VR: The passages were nowehre near as long as everybody had been stating. Maybe 4/5 paragraphs on average. But the paragraphs were quite detailed. My main problem here was that alot of the texts were quite complex including the questions. I would have been happier with 600 in this section but 560 isn't far off so can't overly complain.

    QR: This screwed me over. After skipping the first 10 questions I was panicking and thinking if they were all that difficult. So I slowed down to answer some. BIG MISTAKE. ALL THE EASY ONES WERE AT THE END. I had two sets on pie charts (near end). Really got pissed off because when i began to guess as time was finishing I saw all the easy ones at the end. I really do mean ALL THE EASY ONES. Was hoping for 750+ in this section so really annoyed but when I came out, considering I skipped so many I wasn't too upset with 690.

    AR: WTF. The patterns were so easy I was like YAAAAAS. I come and see I got 600... f**k. Like, I am still confused? The patterns I got all fitted and I genuinely was expecting a minimum of 700 once I finished so 600 was like a dagger in my chest.

    SJT: Lots of LONG passages with like 2 questions on it only.


    Good luck to everyone still to take it. I am really pissed off and don't actually know what to do. I was hoping to apply to Edinburgh but that's out the window now. I would prefer me to stay in Scotland unless it's like oxbridge etc as I have to pay for my own Uni fees. Would appreciate any help now.


    Any questions pls feel free to ask although you probably won't want to considering how much i messed that up
