this reply is for my 9th grade grades... which do not appear anywhere on the freaking site!!!

i did ib middle years programme so it's a little ******...
and my friend got a reply that they require MVG (best in swedish system) for chem bio and physics. but my grades are graded from 1-7........ so means what? the swedish people have 6 and 7 as equivalent to MVG but what if the UK people dont think like that?!?!
i am soooo nervous... REPLY NOTTS FFS!!

Well i hope they accept my grades....im in Dutch medium school and schooling system is a lot different (and less complicated) than the one in UK.

Yeah I was pleased to see that score for AR after looking at my results and seeing 520 in VR T_T. LOL. I suppose it says something about me though. I like polygons!! Haha =p.

And ooh I just noticed! There's a bit that tells me about myself haha =o

"Compared to the responses of other people, your responses suggest a tendency towards being a bit more self-confident, outgoing and comfortable with people, without being dominating or demanding attention. This may make you more able to be aware of the emotional needs of others without being dependent on their reactions to you."

Sounds ok to me!

I hope I don't come across like I'm bragging about the non-cognitive bit =x , but yeah it's pretty accurate for me XD. Does this part get sent off to the universities too? Oo

It would be nice if it did because it matches my personal statement.

You don't come across like you are bragging. I did not like my non-cognitive part at all. I even asked people if it described me and they said that it did not. Hahaha.
I think it gets sent off to the Universities but I am not sure how seriously they take that section.

^ I think it's very likely that UKCAT have got it all wrong with the non-cognitive analysis! And with that, maybe I've got it all wrong and I'm not the person I thought I was (and UKCAT thinks I am)! Oh darn =(. haha XD.

I haven't seen/heard any other people's non-cognitive analysis results, but does anyone know if all of the descriptions are positive or do some come out with more negative descriptions of people?

When I did it last year it didn't really sound like me. This year was odd as I got three sections for it, which come across as positive and negative I think...

"You responses suggest a stronger self-belief, combined with a more positive optimistic outlook on life, when comepared to the responses of other people. This suggest you are happy to take on challenges and take initiatives. When you have the expertise and good judgement this is likely to work well, but you may need to beware of being over-optimistic in other circumstances"

"When compared to the responses of other people, your responses suggest a higher desire to make things happen, together with a stronger determination to work towards your goals. Your preferred style tends to be systematic and reliable, making steady progress towards your goals. When taken to the extreme, such a stayle can become over-structured, and there may be times when letting go and being a little more flexible would be useful"

"Compared to the responses of other people, your responses suggest that you feel more positive about things and are less likely to let things get on top of you. If your experience set-backs, you may believe that you will bounce back, get over them quickly and remain relatively open and cheerful. This may mean that you tend to cope well under pressure but you may need to consider whether your positive orientation is always realistic"

I wonder if people agree with this about me lol

Did mine today:

620
680
790
800

Average: 722.5

Really thought I had messed up QR (I swear I only answered half the questions :confused: , would have needed at least another 10 mins to finish!).

Apart from that I thought that I had enough time for the other sections (finished DA with 8 minutes to spare). I found doing past questions for a couple of hours before the test helps a lot.

Crusader, thats EXACTLY what i got!!!! What going on? I swear there must be others with those same three paragraphs..... they must copy sentences and if someone gets around about what they thing is e.g. more positive out look on life, they just paste that sentence in!!!
