You'll have to pay £15 more to do it after September 1st, and you might have less choice of dates and times if you keep putting it off (as a lot of people will try and cram in towards the end). As for when you get the results, you'll know about 5 minutes after the exam finishes how you did.

LOL same. I think im dont think enough which i shud be doing.

Just be honest I guess. Otherwise you're just fooling yourself :p:

And there is no right or wrong answer, every answer has it's benefits

Well I've done my UKCAT a few weeks ago. I'm happy with my results, could be better, but heck I tried. Recently I've been interested in applying to Leicester. I heard they take your lowest score and rank you based on it? I'm kinda worried about my VR score as it's below average. Would this affect my application and should I perhaps reconsider Leicester?

VR: 540
QR: 650
AR: 690
DA: 790
Avg: 667.5

Thanks.

And yes looking at my marks, it's quite obvious I was really nervous in the beginning.

I'm sooooooooooo scared about saturday man, I hope everyone does really well (including me )

I consider myself pretty good at maths, achieving almost the highest maths score out of the maths takers in my school in AS (excluding some further mathematicians) and I find the QR section on the UKCAT site IMPOSSIBLE to do, literally 50% of the questions done getting about 48% right.

PLEASE tell me that the QR on the real test is NOT as hard. I need some comforting now lol, I'm getting really cheesed off, I haven't had a summer holiday this year!
