    Got mine this afternoon, due to your consistent visitation on this thread I figured you'd be the best person to ask this- what did you take to the exam? Better still what should i take? Pens? what form of identification etc? Thanks for your help in advance x
    Check your email confirmation to see what to bring for the exam in terms of ID as if it's wrong then you can't sit the exam! So check you have the right ID and don't forget it!! You aren't allowed pens,water, or even a hoodie with you. So make sure you dress warm-ish! Basically just bring you and your ID! Make sure you drink a bit before hand and eat but not too much! Definitely go to the toilet before you start the test as that's one less thing to worry about 😂Any belongings you bring, you can put them into a locker there! Good luck!!! X

    I'm actually furious. I have been waiting for ages to take this test, revised loads. End up going to the centre and they say that somebody has drilled through the Network Cable and the whole system is down.
    And now it automatically says I was a No Show on my profile.
    When I called them up they said I'd have to rebook for somewhere 90 miles away from me the same day.
    I have no clue what to do

    Do you have any advice on flagging? How often do you do it? How long does it take for you to decide to flag?

    I'm sorry to hear this. I'm sure you were anxious as hell yesterday, expecting to get it out of the way today. Which (general) area is the test centre in? Have they offered you compensation in any form? (A 'sorry'?)

    I sacrificed two trials with top USA Universities and essential team training this weekend just revising. And all I got was, 'Call Back Later'. They indirectly apologised and that was it. I live in Portsmouth, so Fratton is my centre, but I am so financially tight right now, nowhere else is good for me.

    With VR I rarely flag, if I can't spot the keyword within a few seconds due to it being very dense text (military history, ships, very technical) I'll guess and flag, so maybe one or two sets.

    QR I flag immediately if it's something I know I'd either can't, or struggle to answer. So about 6 sets.
    Data from a table, fine. Percentage changes, fine. Currency conversion, fine.
    Area of circles, flag. Pie, flag. Multi step calculations, flag.

    AR I only flag once and it's usually if the shapes fill the box, struggle with those.

    So are they suggesting that you can take the test in this cycle?

    Well they said they'll call with a reschedule, but on my personal page, I've been given a 'No Show'. The website won't let me ATTEMPT to even search for potential other tests in that area. But apparently when I went to the centre, they'll be requesting a time extension.

    I suppose it's little comfort when you've built up to the exam. If mine was cancelled tomorrow I'd be extremely miffed.

    I'm not even exaggerating this, I've invested 40+ hours into this exam, and sacrificed so much for it, for it to be cancelled due to the stupidest reason I have ever heard. I wish you luck that you do not suffer the same fate

    Hey guys,

    I've got my UKCAT tomorrow and just sat a mock on Medify in which I got VR-570 QR-570 AR-550! I'm so so so worried and I don't know what to do...Does anyone have any advice on how to practice and try to improve in the next 12 hours? I think I'm going to be sick I'm panicking so much.

    VR I struggle completely, I can rarely find key words
    QR I always run out of time or misinterpret the data
    AR I'm just can't see the links :/

    Are medify mocks easier or harder than the real thing? What about the maths questions in the actual test- what are they like?
    Please, any advice will be of great help
    Thank you!!

    Don't worry too much about your mock scores. There is no point in panicking between now and tomorrow, it won't help anything.
    Just relax, have a bath, read over some shapes/patterns techniques and be in the zone for tomorrow.

    Telling people not to worry when my test is tomorrow is somewhat cathartic.

    Hellooo, I want to study medicine and was just wondering if anyone has any advice for me.
    UKCAT= 670 (2010)
    VR= 570
    QR= 740
    AR= 700
    Band 2
    AS grades= AAAA
    A2 predicted= A* A* A
    GCSE grades= 6 A*s and 3 As
    I have done lots of volunteering and work experience!
    I was thinking of applying to Hull York, Bristol/Cardiff, Manchester/Liverpool, Newcastle or Birmingham. I really love Newcastle but my UKCAT score is average so I don't think I can apply there anymore. Has anyone got any advice in regards to the types of unis which I am most likely going to gain an interview! Also, I don't think I will be a strong applicant for Birmingham, do they have a minimum cut off of 7 or 8 A*s still??

    Thank you!!!
    I would leave Newcastle and Cardiff
