    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!
    i don't do the AR section :P i just look at the answers :P i literally cannot work out the patterns!!! i agree, QR is riduculous!!

    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 don't know! it takes me at least 4mins for some of the hard questions!! apaz, in the exam we will have an on-screen calculator which makes it even worse!!!
    i cant use a mouse that fast! loool

    Haha, I get really surprised when I see some of the statistics for Medicine applicants, as it's only about 55% of applicants that are white, especially seeing as here in Devon the vast, vast majority of people here are white - there's only two or three that aren't in my entire school.

    :eek: that's really low! in my year there's 2 or 3 who aren't white, :laugh: typical south-west
    yeah, i had a bit of a shock when i went to Oxford and there were so many people who weren't white, just because i'm so used to it

    I'm also considering HYMS and Manchester, do you know what sort of GCSE grades and UKCAT scores they like? thanks
    Have a look here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...Study_Medicine

    And check the websites.

    HYMS aren't too bothered about the UKCAT, but for manchester, they like a pretty good one.

    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.

    I've already done about a week's worth in a hospital - saw someone fitting in resus!:eek:
    That was scary.

    And I've got the consultant shadowing thing coming up - a psychiatrist, so it should be very interesting

    Woooooo Aberdeen. I just like Scotland, all my family are from Paisley and we're always up (it sort of realllllly influence my choices last year considering I applied to four Scottish lol) I agree about the UKCAT! It shouldn't be so crucial :/ Cause theres other tests for all those things and I've done reallly well in them but then not as well in UKCAT... money making scam I tell ye! lol

    I know what you mean! There's just something about Scotland... :laugh:

    I don't know why we have to pay so much. I was thinking about this t'other day, and thought that they might have to pay test centres to rent rooms out and etc.

    Ah well.
