    Well I did try a free version of "who has the biggest brain" or some other such nonsense on an iPod Touch yesterday and was told that I had a brain generations ahead of my time, so swings and roundabouts I guess. :p:

    Firstly, if you are using the 600 Questions book to prepare & the sample tests online, the QR questions in those are SO much harder than in the real UKCAT. I did fairly badly on those QR practice questions, but on the real UKCAT (which i sat last August) I absolutely shocked myself and got 760. In the real test the questions were A LOT easier, and you don't need to finish the section to get a good score. In fact, i would go as far as saying it's virtually impossible to finish. I got about 50% of the questions finished (and guessed the remaining 50%) on the QR section and got what i thought to be a good score.

    I really do think practicing UKCAT improves your score, and the fact that you are already practicing puts you at a great advantage, because i doubt many other people will start practicing until April at the earliest. The best book to buy to prepare is definitely the 600 Question book, despite the QR questions being a bit harder than those on the real thing. I also used onexamination.com which is okay, but not amazing.

    Hope this helps! Good luck
    I finished it and came out with 800
    And I didn't really practice much, it was the AR that screwed up my score.

    But OP, the UKCAT download thing made me want to cry, the QR was so bad. It was so much easier in the actual exam, so I shouldn't worry about it too much!

    Hi,
    I'm hoping to apply for GEP medicine in 2011 - Currently I work as an occupational therapist, and i reckon i have a good chance at it - if I get through the whole UKCAT bit.
    In practicing, i'm fine at all areas except QR, which I just go to bits on - I did great in GCSE maths, but this is very different! Any tips or advice - Seriously worried now...??

    Rach
    Everyone finds the UKCAT hard. It's just something you have to go through. I came out of my UKCAT and cried :dontknow: But it worked out in the end. Just work on getting every other bit of your application perfect, and find some similar online practice tests (there's loads if you google). At least your preparing early All the best
