    Anyone started UKCAT prep yet? I started this week now that exams are over and there's not much to do in free periods now. DA and AR are ridiculously hard
    yup i started, i agree about AR, but im finding DA the easiest so far!...
    i think the timing in QR sooooo difficult and as for AR...well, thats not really going to plan!! hmm.

    you've started A2 content?

    i had to self-learn most of my A/S content getting new teachers i hope/just about to!

    i'm purely focusing on medicine for the next two months, then going to move on to A2 prep.

    =/ i waste my days cause i do bare all!
    Yeah, but school have started explaining UCAS, personal statement, reference etc.. to us.
    In economics I've got a 5k word essay on the european union which is in for the end of the month
    In chemistry we are doing are PSA on Aspirin which is worth 3 marks and counts towards are A2 ISA.

    I don't find DA that difficult, but a lot of the time the answers are very, very similar are trying to work out which is right can be frustrating. QR isn't too bad imo. What book are you using? If it's the 600q one the QR in there is excessively hard, much harder than the practice tests.

    I had 1 interview, and at newcastle where they interview over 1000 people (out of 3000 applicants, so many more interviews given out than usual) and i new i did s***, and recieved my feedback, and i got 90% of the criterea borderline, which i think the interviewers were to nice to give me unsatisfactory. Anyways i was probably the candidate who performed the worst...

    Just thought id moan some more...
    Aww lol I nearly considered applying to there, but thought it was too close to home... 60miles away but still too close to home lol I think they also went for high ukcats so it wasn't worth me applying where you considering reapplying too?

    We've already started the A2 syllabus in most subjects, like in biology we are going to malham to study ecology and stuff. I hate ecology it's so boring. Human biology is the interesting stuff.
    Yeah we started the A2 course back in January, but half of my periods are now frees so I've got a lot of free time.

    Which exam board are you with? That's a mahussive gap - all that work for an A, yet you could sleep in the exam and answer like 3 q's and get a B!? Haha. Good luck anyway

    I'm guessing you're a reapplicant then?
    OCR. Think I need 126/150 to get A overall (480ums) so thats like 84 outta 100. But only need 420 for a B so 66/150 which is like 44 outta 100. its really weird if only you needed a B in bio for medicine :moon: It is ridicluous! all this extra stress because theres such a huge gap between them!Thanks Good luck with all yours too

    and yeah I am :^_^:

    3 year sixth form, so the AS course and A2 course are both done over 1.5 years each rather than 1 each. I finished GCSEs in year 10 and spent Y11 learning AS.
