    I am struggling with the UKCAT mocks, they feel so hard, doing much better on medify though. Finding the QR impossible on ukcat mocks but medify is not bad but keep making careless mistakes

    Hi guys,

    My UKCAT is on Monday and I'm really struggling with comprehension questions on VR and I just want to ask the people who have done it if they have any tips on how to read and answer quickly as timing is a real issue. Any replies would be much appreciated.

    Definitely lol, that's a very high score and will almost definitely exceed their cut off. Why did you get 4 rejections btw?

    Oh well that's good to know haha!
    last year I applied to Exeter, Bristol, Nottingham and Newcastle.

    Exeter didn't interview anyone that wasn't predicted 3A*s and I was only predicted A*AA
    Nottingham I missed out on their cut off score by 2 or 3 points
    Bristol my personal statement didnt quite meet their requirements
    Newcastle my UKCAT last year just wasn't quite high enough unfortunately.

    They look at overall and your band. You will be fine for Hull York with those stats despite your UKCAT- mine are the same except my UKCAT average is lower at 640. You should definitely consider Exeter too as you will be in top tier for those achieved A-levels!

    if you dont mind me asking, did you find the AR sets each have several conditions/rules? and was the QR text heavy and did it have long step calculations?

    • VR: 840. 4-5 paragraphs, ≈4 tfc ≈7 comprehension. The key words were generally easier than medify.
    • QR:760 :mad:. Data questions and a few confusingly worded questions
    • AR: 890 patterns were quite simple but i think they mark it easily
    • Band 1. Some big ones had few questions but they were basically the same as any other practice website i tried.
    Medify is best. Isc is alright.
    wow very well done squishy.

    :bumps:

    840 in VR aswel!!
    do you remember any AR shapes ? x

    Just like position of shapes and number of shapes.
    Certain colour of certain shapes.
    Perhaps there was symmetry not sure.
    I ignore any lines or arrows that seem to be random.

    VR, i skim read then look at the question then scan it again.
