    So, I did my exam this afternoon.

    VR 640
    QR 900 (no joke)
    AR 690.

    But then I got BAND 4 in SJT. Should that matter? Which universities use the SJT band in the admission process, and which don't?
    you have an amazing average, well done! I know sheffield use the SJ, but tbh the best thing to do would just be to call up the unis you're thinking of applying to and enquiring! Did the VR section have very long statements for the ans options and was the timing quite tight? I was also wondering if in the QR you had any cumulative frequency?
    Thank you!

    I feel like i am pestering you with questions lol but do you think "revising" for like a good hour a day for a month would be enough? I have recently finished my exams and i just feel like i should be relaxing during summer break and not stressing about UKCAT or anything really lol.
    Hi Roman hang Limbu

    Do you have a date for your UKCAT?

    Ideally you should set aside a few hours each day to practise in the weeks leading up to your test. This could be done on your own using the resources that you have gathered together or as part of a course, although you would obviously have to pay for this.

    I completely understand that you would want to relax during your summer break and you should absolutely do that too but it is really worth putting in the time and effort to prepare for the UKCAT now so that you walk in feeling confident on the day!

    You might be interested in reading this blog which has some great tips for getting ready for the big day!

    I hope that helps. Feel free to give me a shout if you have any questions... always happy to help!

    VR had a mixture of statements + True, False, Can't tell. Timing was really tight - I had 30 seconds to spare.
    QR didn't have any cumulative frequency for me, but you will get different questions to what I got, so prepare for absolutely everything.

    Hello, I am going to be writing my UKCAT exam soon. I saw a lot of threads saying the "Get into Medical School: 600 UKCAT Practice Questions" is the best book to study from. I was wondering if "Get into Medical School - 1000 UKCAT Practice Questions" is the exact same book with more questions or if the 600 question version is better ? Thanks for your help
    ISC's 1000 Questions book is the newer version of the 600Q book. They have kept the relevant questions but have added the new AR style questions, the new VR style questions + SJT questions, and more QR of a simpler nature. Since they scrapped the DA section, that probably makes about 500 new questions.

    It's always best if you practise using up-to-date material.

    Haven't done much QR but I'm gonna do quite a bit today and the next few days before my exam, AR varies between 65-75 so yeah 70%, and for SJT all I've done is all the ISC questions and made notes and I just read those as I feel they've covered everything

    So basically today I undertook the UKCAT (for the third time) and received 607 (for the third time :P ), and was wondering if anyone has advice on universities that will regard my application before looking at my terrible result. Academically and experience wise I feel my application is strong, I have achieved a first class degree in biomed (by the time I apply I would have started MSc immunology in imperial), with loads of experience in hospitals and clinical labs. I understand that there are all these point systems, but to my surprise the test I just took only had 3 instead of 4 sections (so the calculations don't add up). Many thanks.
    PS I'm applying for the normal undergrad entry

    has anyone done modify mock 3 yet? I did so well in medify mock 2 and got a decent score in the first one, but the third mock was terrible for me!
    I did worst in the third one. I actually got worse with every attempt; 676.6 in 1, 666.6 in 2 and 643.3 in number 3. Hope I didn't peak too early.

    Can someone tell me whether the 1000 UKCAT Qs book is any good?
    Or is it rubbish just like the previous 600Q book ?

    Hi guys!

    I'm really struggling with AR, and often am unable to pick out the right pattern, or pick out any pattern at all. Any tips, or successful strategies?

    Thank you!
    I was really struggling with AR few weeks ago however its true the more you do the more you can spot. I use to look at AR and was like I will never understand what the pattern relationships are. So now for e.g I am looking for when patterns are anti clockwise, shading, size, number of sides etc and Ive picked it up . I now need to just start working on my timing.

    Im really struggling with QR wish that was the one they missed off for this year ha

    my average was 693 and for sj i got band 1 (yay for band 1)
    vr: 540 lmao what a joke but yeah i got huge ass passages like wtf i was so mad during the test, and also i hate reading and im a super slow reader but still during my practice i got 650 ish so this saddened me
    ar: 650 ok this one also during my practice i got better than that so was kinda disappointed, but everything was really vague.
    qr: 890 math is just my strong subject
