    LOL why? I don't talk about it that much, do I? :puppyeyes:
    Yes you do, look at the last wall post you made at me.


    On the subject of UKCAT, from what I've heard, all you need is that 600 questions book. It's just past papers. Having a high IQ helps and a generally affinity for IQ tests/competence tests/this kind of bull**** helps, but that book is supposed to be incredible...

    Good stuff! :five: Well thinking 1 more BMAT uni so either UCL/Imperial, and 1 outside London (maybe Nottingham or somewhere), and maybe Kings? Haven't decided yet And fair enough, so the UKCAT has no influence on unis which don't use it? Even as a reference or something, as in will they not see your score?
    I haven't seen if there is anywhere on the UCAS for specifically for putting them down so I don't know. I'm also thinking of Aberdeen but will save the last space until after UKCAT when I'll decided to apply to another UKCAT uni or not. Have you got a back up choice?

    Ain't gonna argue.

    And basically, I'd try reading it, not much else works really.

    I haven't got it yet, but I will in a bit, so I'll give my verdict later. But it does have like 150 5* reviews and an average of like 4.99/5 on Amazon, so there can't be much wrong with it.

    Oh, I've missed you.

    Haha, it probably is really good, but I haven't looked at it regularly enough to appreciate it. And I've mainly looked at the QR and AR, both of which are completely insane.

    Probably biomed but don't know where yet. I wouldn't mind something like history as well but that's out of the question, can you imagine history admission tutors sitting reading a medicine PS?

    I know you have darling, you miss me every day. Make me a sandwich?

    Yeah, I don't know what the 4 sections or the profile bit at the end actually involve, but I'm just gonna rely on the book. Doesn't seem that hard like the BMAT though, which is irritating. I found the questions on the BMAT pretty easy but then only got like half of them right, which was really annoying, because I thought it was a pisstake but all the questions were really deceptive. And FML for the essay section, so glad UKCAT doesn't need that.

    Making a map was easy, I did it in an economics lesson. All you have to do is draw England and then draw all the universities you can think of. How's that difficult? Getting off the chair however, now that is a bit annoying. I like the chair.

    I don't care, I've drawn another one now. Suck on it biaaaaaaaaatch

    Anyone know how much Oxford and Cambridge use the BMAT in comparison to each other? I know Oxford prefers GCSE grades, and Cambridge AS UMS marks, in comparison, but anyone know how much they use BMAT? I'm sure it's on TSR but I cbs to look for it and would prefer it someone just gave it to me on a platter.... Also, how much do they care about work experience?

    9 x 5 = 45?

    Living expenses are not 9k a year at uni.

    Maybe that figure might be reasonable if you were to do the 6 year course at London University, but it would still be pushing it.
