    I'm in really bad shape at the moment, guys. I've prepared pretty thoroughly over the past few weeks and, in my mocks, I've not been able to score anywhere near what's required for Newcastle/Warwick.

    I'm a non-science applicant for GEM (with non-science A-levels) and I'm in need of some serious motivation. My UKCAT is at 08:00 on 4th October (in less than two days). I've done the UKCAT practice tests and I've used the 1000qs book. I'm not feeling very hopeful. What do you think my chances of producing a better score on test day are?

    Here are my scores:

    Medify MINI-MOCKS:

    VR: 650
    QR: 650
    AR: 570

    Average: 623

    Medify FULL MOCKS:

    Mock 1

    VR: 700
    QR: 550
    AR: 700

    Average: 650

    Mock 2

    VR: 570
    QR: 570
    AR: 650

    Average: 596

    Mock 3

    VR: 600
    QR: 550
    AR: 650

    Average: 600

    qr for 1000q is definitely harder, vr of 1000q is easier than real exam

    Congrats!
    Can I ask what your individual break downs were?
    And do you remember your scores for any mocks you did?

    Guys this is a question my cousin wants to ask but doesnt have a TSR account.

    He got an average of around 850 I think on his UKCAT and got 4As or 3As and a B for his AS which were in maths, bio, chem and further maths. He is predicted 2A*s and 2As (I think I'm not entirely sure but somewhere around there).

    The problem is his GCSEs were far from the typical medical applicant.

    1A* 8As 2Bs and a C.

    As you can see these aren't the best grades however, he went to a very underperforming school where more than half the students fail (get less than 5A*- C grades) every year and he is from a bad area as well. His GCSE grades are considered to be one of the best in the school he was in.

    Would he be able to get into a med school with these grades?

    He is also doing the BMAT exam on the 2nd November? Hopefully he does well.
    He would like to go to Cambridge or Imperial but he doesn't really mind where he ends up as they'll all end up in the same place lol.

    So could someone give me advice to tell him?

    Boy his grades are well good. He can get a place anywhere thats not massively GCSE heavy, UCL and imperial would be more than fine. Cambridge make sure he has high average percentage of ums in AS levels.

    He's done his AS levels already and got 99% across his maths modules (298/300) and 98% across his Biology and Chemistry exams. Further maths was on the poor side which he was very annoyed about as he missed out on the A by 2 UMS I think. But his personal goal was to get 95+ on everything ahaha but honestly would die for his grades

    Also Imperial and UCL require a B in English Language but he got a C in that but an A in English lit if that makes any difference?

    Cambridge use the top three subjects i'm sure so he should be in a really really good position then.
    If he has a C in language then tell him to resit it and put the grade as pending on ucas. Otherwise i'm not sure many universities allow a C.

    I think so! You are given a whiteboard. My plan is to spend some time during the Decision Analysis section writing out some important equations for the QR and my list for Abstract
