i don't think you can do standard form on UKCAT calculators, correct me someone if I'm wrong?? I would assume its WAY quicker to do standard form in your head? Watch a youtube tutorial on it

how do you use the memory function?
*
If you are storing a number you press M+ with the number typed in.
If then you were gonna add anything to it, you will just press M+ and it adds it to the number already stored in the memory
M- subtracts the number currently typed in from the number in the memory
when doing means you can just do (45*50) then M+ then (45*51) then M+ (45*52) then M+ and it will add each multiplication to the memory number.
In order to see the number stored u press MRC. If you have used it to do a calc then u can do MRC = then the number will show up and you can then divide this by the amount of people if you were calculating an average.

Roughly the same. The passages in the real thing were slightly longer, however they were easier to understand. Medify the passages are so hard to understand, like the ones about war omg!
I guess its all down to luck tbh!

How do you define harder?

Like im failing the QR
12. Hey,
For VR the passages were long so just flag the long passages and come back.
QR was much easier compared to modify or the mocks.
AR was pretty similar to mocks.
I got 640,890,730 so 753 average.

I'm already forgetting and I just finished the exam like 5 minutes ago!
I remember a few odd evens. A couple had to do with like one more of this object on this side rather than the other.

your scores are really good, 890 for QR ? Any suggestions on how to improve on QR & AR?

For QR if you see a problem which you simply just don't understand just flag and move on.
AR just requires practice.

Hi, please can anyone thinking of Manchester advise on the non-academic criteria. What defines as good experience in caring role i.e., tenure (months or years???)
I Phoned them up last year. From what I can remember they said they like long term commitment over a period of months, i remember the guy saying 6 months is preferable. Also its important to reflect what you gained from it. Top 1000 people are ranked using UKCAT and 900 are invited to interview based on non academic form. So basically 100 out of 1000 people get rejected due to their form.

Is volunteering at a hospital since January decent enough for commitment one day a week? I've learnt loads from it too
