I was worrying about that when compiling the spreadsheet and listening to everyone saying they hadn't answered many questions.

Hopefully, it's just marked leniently rather than falsely and so won't be discounted!

Edit: I wish the AR were discounted. :p:
I don't wish either AR or QR are discounted. That's the two sections am good at...
I wish VR or DA is discounted. As it could bring my marks up~~

What makes it even more suspicious is everyone seems to be horrified by the prospect that QR might be discounted. lol

I've been thinking it for ages. Ever since I got my results really. But I kind of didn't want to say anything and then jinx the situation
well now i know who to blame should it happen.

noooo no scrapping of VR! abstract should be scrapped again.

i hadn't thought of it until i read it here, but you have a point; everyone seems to have scored well on the QR, and the questions were definitely (to me at least) easier than the practice ones. maybe they purposefully made that bit easier this year...and it's backfired..?

either way, i hope it doesn't get cancelled!

If VR was discounted, my average would go up to 627.
If QR was discounted, my average would drop down to 578.
If AR was discounted, my average would go up to 620.
If DA was discoutned, my average woudl drop down to 597.

We should totally get a petition done to discount VR or AR! :p:

If we discount VR, which I highly doubt, I'd jump to 703 O_O.

But realistically, I don't think they'd discount anything.

I don't think anything will be discounted

It's the same for all candidates. So relative to each other, it's a fair test

Yeah but I'd rather know now because if QR was discounted then I would not be so happy applying to Kings!

You see i wish they would just take VR out because there are always arguments about the answer to the questions. If VR gets taken out I get boosted to 710 so that would be great. But I HIGHLY doubt they will take a section out unless something was significantly wrong. UKCAT will lose a lot of reliability and universities are just going to junk the UKCAT if it keeps being so inaccurate. They'll obviously try their best to not take out a section as last year was a bit of a mess.

i'm in a similar situation. didn't get as high as you last year, but i'm still worried i'll mess up this year.

look: what happens happens, right? all you can do is your best, and if it doesnt work out, there are always other ways.

i have mine in four hours.
