    Does anyone happen to have an active medify account they no longer need?😁, the parents won't let me get one😥
    Do you think this question is:

    1 - Very appropriate
    2 - Appropriate but no ideal
    3 - Inappropriate but not awful
    4 - Very inappropriate

    ?

    I'd also recommend using Medify. It was probably the best source of improvement for me. It costs money, but I think it's definitely worth it if you want a really competitive score.

    Hi janewrightxo

    Firstly try not to stress yourself out about it.

    As you have pointed out, you have improved which I am sure is thanks to your prep over the summer so my advice is to keep practising and I'm sure you will continue to see improvements.

    Make sure that you are using the best resources available. You could also consider taking a course which will teach you time saving techniques, but this will cost you money. Do give me a shout if you are interested in finding out more about this sort of thing.

    Otherwise, set aside a few hours each day to work on your UKCAT in the weeks leading up to your test date so that you walk in feeling confident and prepared on the day.

    Hope that is of use!

    Thank you! I would personally like to avoid spending too much money but I have been doing a mock exam per day so hopefully this will pay off. I am grateful for your advice!

    There's no wrong or right. You just have to try what suits you and give it a go. Good luck.

    Hi,
    I am really struggling with VR because of the timing. Do you guys have any useful strategy how to tackle the questions? I don't know if I should read the passage first and try to understand it or only look for keywords. Unfortunately I am a really slow reader and there is not much I can do about it since English is not my first language and skim-reading with good comprehension is very difficult to me
    Please help

    You'll find your answer here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UCAS_Tariff

    Things have changed. 56 is the new 140

    Yes you do. It's useful to keep track of intermerdiary calcs as the calculator does not have a memory function

    I never really considered it. I don't want to live in London so I might not apply. However, if I have a REALLY good chance of getting in. Then its different.
