    I am getting similar results! Except my AR is my highest and my VR is my lowest. I also want to apply to Kings, they have higher requirements? Cardiff does not prioritize UKCAT, you could apply there.
    What are their requirements? And yeah, looking at brum and keele as they are not the heavy but hopefully will improve

    How do you calculate your score from the full medify mock?
    i.e. mock 1

    It does it for you but a more accurate way is to do what you got for the section divided by the max, multiplied by 600 and add 300. E.g) If I got 34/36 in QR that is 0.94444444. If I multiply this by 600 I get 567, then if I add 300 I get 867 which wouldbe my score in that section

    I just sat UKCAT and got 673 average (VR pulls my score down a lot). Is this score decent enough for me to apply to med schools?

    I'm sorry. I'm kind of scared considering most people here are scoring 700+. I guess I just have to wait and see

    don't worry this is TSR, it's totally not representative

    anyone wanna offer some tips for the abstract reasoning section??
    Hi d010534

    Hoping I can help here!

    Use a system to identify patterns. We recommend NSPCC : first look at number – count everything you see: sides, shapes, angles, circles, arrows etc. Then look at patterns with size (big v small), position (corner or centre of box), colour (be careful – this is often a distractor) and conformation (the relationship between different shape positions) respectively. Spend most of the time deducing the rule, then answer the questions quickly.

    I hope that you find that useful.

    Do let me know if you have any questions... always happy to help!

    Hey guys
    Would you say a 670 average is ok if I'm applying to Birmingham, Barts and Leicester?
    My GCSEs are 8A*s, 2 Distinction*s and 2As
    I think your score would definitely be good enough
    There's a score calculator for Birmingham which you can use ( you get it from their website) and you can work out your score using Leicester's admission document, and then make a more informed decision for yourself based on your score. I don't know much about Barts, but your score is quite high, so i wouldn't be too concerned about it for most other unis if it comes to that

    Hey, just completed all the medify Mini mocks and got 677 Average, and Band 2 SJ (750 Verbal, 650 Quantitative and 630 Abstract). Got a while yet until my UKCAT and lots more mocks to do but if I do get these scores in the real thing (hopefully not) what unis would I be able to apply to? Would Kings definitely be out? :puppyeyes:
    It would depend on the averages. If you were to be high enough, you would probably be on the low side of the cut-off (if they have one, which i think they do, but i might be wrong). I think kings look at multiple aspects of your application and i think it balances out, but you'd be better looking at their website for yourself and looking at their past cut offs. We can't do the research for you, that's something you'll have to do yourself.

    Hi Kings_queens

    It is only natural that you feel nervous before a big test but do try not to stress!

    Try to get plenty of sleep tonight and make sure you wear something comfortable tomorrow. Have a good breakfast in the morning and walk in feeling confident.

    Good luck for tomorrow!

    So, one more question, with an average score of 673.3, should I apply to an UKCAT heavy uni like King's or Glasgow? The cut off score for previous years seem very bizarre (for King's, 630 for 2015 and 740 for 2014????). My GCSEs are 8A*s, 2 Distinctions and 2AThanks a lot in advance
