    Holy shite. Am I right in thinking its 40qs in 20min?
    Yeah but I thinks it's about 3 Qs on each text, I still don't know if I have passed but my application is now being reviewed by the uni😄 If I pass I can give better advice and if I don't then I can tell u what not to do😄

    Oh right. So it's like true.false/cannot say about 3 statements on the same info then. Interesting. At least you don't have to read 40 paras of text for each question. And thank you I hope you do well!

    Thank you, good luck with the rest of your application!

    Also for the numerical test do you need a calculator & paper to work on? Or is it all easy mental arithmetic?

    u defo need a calculator and a pen😄 this one does need some revision. Especially percentage increases/decreases, ratios, tables and graphs. All the Qs I can remember were very complicated with many steps😢

    Just done the verbal reasoning, I think it went alright but 20 mins for 40 questions was brutal. Only had a minute to spare to check answers. Also realised that I answered "Can't tell" for a fair few questions haha.

    Well done! I hope it goes well for you I'm sitting my verbal tomorrow and my numerical Sunday so hopefully I'll be offered an interview after that.

    Do you know what sort of percentile is a good place to be at for the verbal? Or just % correct in general?
