    Wow, I think they want our PS draft in by July. I need to start thinking about that, but there's already so many things I need to be doing . I need to get more organised.
    I need to get mine in by wednesday, but I'm busy procrastinating.

    You can ask me things on Queen's, I got quite a lot of info on them since virtually every medicine talk I've been to have been based on their admissions etc since they are the only med school in NI.

    Oh dear seems I may fail at the first question. The powerpoint I have doesn't have anything on it and since we've alway had 'resit is not an option' drilled into us I didn't pay much attention to info on resits. There's just most stuff on their points ranking and the multiple mini interviews.

    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.
    yeah i'm using the 600q book. i hope its easier than the practice ones...or i'm dead.

    how on earth do you do the abstract reasoning section? it seems impossibly hard

    here's a site i use

    http://www.newmediamedicine.com/foru...-advice-5.html

    as for the questions on the quantitative reasoning...i mean 30 seconds per questions, it takes me 15 to read the question, and how on earth do i answer it? most of them are twisted/require another 15 to decode!

    QR is the easiest, I just need to brush up on my mental arithmetic.
    it's basically the timing i'm struggling with. the actual maths isn't that difficult. the 600q book says that each question should be done in 30secs. i swear thats impossible for some questions!!!

    omg JINX

    this is what i am finding for roughly about...ALL of them

    there may be one or two obvious ones, but as soon as you hit q 3 4 5 6...it gets tricky.

    how can anyone find this section easy in the time limit?what is your approach? do you use the calculator? if so, how on earth do you read, decode, understand, note down, then use the calc in 30 seconds?

    i'm also using that, maybe we can work together

    I'm thinking of Aberdeen as well :five: I used to live there, and loved going to the beach. Um, possibly Sheffield if I get a kickass ukcat, Leeds, Manchester or HYMS. It all depends on the pesky ukcat though. Stupid thing.

    once you start getting a few right you'll start being able to find the patterns quicker and quicker


    i think i'll be taking my 600UKCAT book with me to london so for the week i'm doing nothing i guess i can just work on that, although, some french teacher saw me reading lefigaro.fr and gave me some french work that i can do (which is far more interesting)... and i get distracted easily mmm
    :| and urgh, need to get my provisional licence sorted out for ID to take the test, how annoying ¬¬

    I need to order my provisional, really can't be bothered right now, but it'll be good once I start learning. The main downside of Devon IMO is that you need a drivers licence to be able to go anywhere unless you want to pay ridiculous train/bus fares :/

    i agree, once you start getting some right you do see trends, but still, even though i am no expert on any sections, abstract is difficult to me.

    =/ i can't find patterns! sometimes there is MORE than one?!

    i can't be bothered learning to drive... not that i could afford the insurance afterwards anyway i just stick with ridiculous bus fares ¬¬

    well i s'pose it's just about getting used to, because usually there are only certain things the patterns can refer to, it's just if you spot them... it's just the evil distractor shapes that they put in there which are annoying

    A tip: for verbal reasoning read the question, then the relevant part of the text, the next question, and its relevant text etc.

    Grr. Have you got any work experience lined up for the hols? I'm shadowing a consultant :awesome: Might try and get some GP w.exp if I can be bothered.




    Thanks Where are you thinking of applying?
    I've hopefully got a week at Barts (almost certainly actually). I'm also hoping for a month at another hospital You? I'm trying to find out if I could do a day shadowing a GP, but I'll find out if that's possible on Wednesday.
