    Is it me or is the VR on Medify horrible?
    I found it horrible initially but after practice, it is getting better. I have gone from 4/10 to 7/10.
    So keep practising and do more untimed questions.

    Which questions are you finding horrible: t/f/ct or the comprehension?

    how do you attempt the comprehension type questions?

    Under the practice section in medify, i have the option to do a mix of both or just one set. Although, if i am not wrong, i may have got this option after a week or two. It may be something that is available after you do a certain number of practice questions. I have also done 2 out of 3 of the mocks.

    Hi guys,
    It seems as though the scores for QR are really high. Was it harder than usual and did you miss out any questions. How hard was in compared to medify/1000q's book. Thanks!!!

    God I am honestly panicking. Abstract reasoning is the one section in the ISC book that I cannot get my head around and no matter how much i practise, i am just not getting it! I am worried I will finish the entire section and still feel the same. Did anyone else feel the same or is this a sign

    How does medify compare to the UKCAT? Sitting on September 5th, at the moment verbal and situational are my best on medify (in good time and only on occasion being incorrect) but worried in the UKCAT they will be harder?

    I am alright at abstract and really bad at quantitative time is an issue, what are they like on medify vs the real exam?

    Also what resources are good apart from medify and 1000Q exhausting medify right now haha

    I read the question then try to find key words in the text. If the text is on a subject i dont like, i don't spend too long on it. If the ans is not obvious, pick a random one and flag (so i can come back to it if i have time).
    My big improvement was the t/f/ct and that's because i have stopped "over-analysing" and no longer use my own knowledge; so for eg if the text does not mention the PM is Theresa May then a question asking if the PM is May will be "cant tell".

    Ahh I see, t/f/ct questions take so much less time than the sentence one. But sometimes keywords come up in a different form in the text , so what happens then?

    Ahh, I made a mistake and bought the UniAdmissions question booklet along with their online content >.<. Definitely do not recommend that site guys!!

    On another note, I've spent 2 weeks just familliarising my self with the exam and noticed quite an improvement with my VR and AR (not hard as I was very very sh**). I plan on working 2/3 hours a day for 5 days with the 3 weeks I have left. Has anyone purchased the MedicPortal online question bank? I'm running out of questions and I finished the demo mode of their online questions and it seemed pretty legit and almost mirrored Medify (which is the best UKCAT reviewer).

    Thanks in advance

    I just try to understand the meaning of the statement. If thr statement is about a subject, maybe scan for the subject.

    How do people find the medify mocks compare to the isc mock? Personally I found the isc mock a fair bit easier than the medify ones, not sure if this is just me but I was expecting to do a lot worse in the isc one but actullY found it okay. Apart from QR. That was dreadful 😂😂

    What's wrong with uniadmissions? I've heard mixed reviews.

    I've also noticed medify use a different scheme for working out your score. I normally do it by scaling up my score to make it out of 600 then add 300 to top and bottom i.e. I got 39/55 in AR on medify, this is equal to 425/600, then I add 300 to top and bottom, giving 725/900. Yet medify say I scored 700? Anyone else notice this? Got my test tomorrow btw hahaha FML

    Can someone please tell me whether the QR on medify is representative of the real test. It's too
    time consuming at the moment and the questions can be confusing ( I do A level maths as well)
