    Everything I try and write is the most cliched thing in the world and to be pretty frank, sucks. Ahh well, I guess we do have a lot of time though.

    Less than 2 weeks to my UKCAT test

    I was messing around with the official UKCAT online practice test just now and realised that the onscreen calculator closes each time you move on to the next question. Is there anyway to make the onscreen calculator...continually on the screen? :rolleyes:

    Brilliant, I loved it. Doing ward rounds etc, it's a bit like the Junior docs on TV only you are actually following it in real life.

    I wish it was longer, feeling a bit sad now, the people I shadowed were all so nice and I sort of miss them.
    I miss my place too! It was at the Royal London Hospital and I LOVED it! I added one of the doctors of facebook :laugh:

    Nah it says on the UKCAT website that the calculations will be lost when moving onto the next question: http://www.ukcat.ac.uk/pages/details...om#calculators
    Aw at least it will be over soon
    Mine's in like three but i'm not sure i'm anywhere near ready, the timing is a b*tch

    Thanks for the info!

    Yup, agree with you about the timing. How are you doing on VR and QR? I'm generally a slow reader and can't complete these 2 sections on time

    No problem
    I find VR okay because i don't really read the passage, i sort of scan it and find the answers quite quickly without reading the whole thing, just need to improve on accuracy because i usually have time left over.
    QR is alright for difficulty, but horrible for time
    I'm acctually in love with DA, it may save my score from AR - which i'm hopeless at
    Only our results will tell :rolleyes:

    I feel that VR is okay, but in my rush to skim through the passage I often miss out on certain details.
    QR is not that hard too but calculations take up a lot of time.
    AR is actually my favourite section (I can't believe I'm saying this!) and my general strategy is to compare based on criteria like colours, number of objects, number of sides etc. based on what seems right at that moment But often there may be more than one relationship between the shapes that I don't realise.
    DA is...fun when the codes are short, heh.

    All the best for your UKCAT

    Yeah i think the only way is timed practise, since time is the main constraint
    Thanks, you too
    I'm sure we'll be fine though

    I had a dream where I had to sit the UKCAT and went through each section in my dream (how sad is that?!?! D; ) But after the dream it made me realise I don't know if I have any formal ID...

    My passport expired, I haven't got my provisional license yet (though planning to soon)

    What did you guys use as proof of ID?
