    Need that new BMAT book that comes out on 1st July, the official one doesnt have enough questions for decent preparation, and i'm almost done with the past papers :/

    It's the critical thinking ones i need most practice with, might go look up past papers of those on OCR site
    You've almost finished the past papers? It's only June!

    Kool Oh right I see what you mean, and yeah I agree with the maths, and probably decision analysis because it just looks awful :laugh: But I haven't even started practicing properly yet, will start next week How long you practiced for at the moment?
    Ah fair enough, I've had to start because mine's so soon! But I doubt I will have done that much preparation because of other exams, rehearsing for a play, volunteering etc :P a few weeks probably, but I haven't done loads

    There's only a few: http://www.admissionstests.cambridge...st+Preparation

    There isn't really much material to work with, that's why i plan on getting the 400BMAT book. It's better to start early than leave it too late, i feel like if i can ace the UKCAT and BMAT, and get as close as possible to full marks, it'll improve my chance of getting into a med uni by a hell of a lot....

    Am I the only one who LOVES decision analysis?? Haha and the maths one (except timing) It's just Abstract Reasoning I can't seem to crack

    I hate it! I had a look at 1 question and attempted the questions and got like 2/7 Does reading it in more depth help? Also do you use the 600Q book? And yeah that is hard too, but I find it easier than Decision Analysis

    Haha maybe And when you go through the questions now do you do it by taking your time, or in the normal exam time?

    At the moment I'm just taking my time. But when I do the mock bit I'll do the proper timing hopefully. That's the most annoying thing about QR and VR :/
