    Haha fair enough, that's a good idea to do it on your birthday then
    And same here, apparently the board pen they give you is permanent marker as well? Which doesn't help at all
    Yeah, I imagine I'll be sticking one hand up when the board is nearly full whilst still scribbling with the other.

    I ****ing hate AR. Can't do any of it. For ****'s sake. Mastered VR, QR, DA, can't ****ing do AR. Not even a little bit, I can only manage the first two questions in the 600Q book and NONE, NOT EVEN THE FIRST ONE, in the Passing UKCAT and BMAT book. FFS

    Edit: ****
    How long did it take to master QR, VR and DA? And I think I have the Passing the UKCAT and BMAT book somewhere, I'll have a look at the AR from there now

    Ok I'll have a look either tomorrow or wednesday (probably wednesday) and will give my two cents

    But you are not to base anything on me since I believe the people reviewing you atm are way more qualified than me :sadnod:

    Oh right I see, fair enough
    A formula as in some kind of point scoring system?
    And I can understand that, but can you advise students to choose a certain college based on their academics?
    Yes to formulae = point based system.
    Very hard to advise anyone re:colleges without knowing their extracurriculars, work XP, personality etc.

    I see, I am just worried that one of my AS marks wouldn't be as high as the rest, I predict something like worst case scenario:

    265/300, 280/300, 290/300 and 290/300 in Maths, Physics, Biology and Chemistry respectively.
    Any ideas if it is enough?
    And it is enough to get a 4A* prediction from my school.
    With a solid BMAT would this compensate for the AS marks?

    I see, and that's fair enough
    Don't get stressed by the unknowns.
    Ask again when you do in fact get your marks.
    But yes, BMAT can easily sway things your way with a weak AS UMS. Do you have a BMAT revision plan at the moment?

    Hell, I know people who got in and had to resit P1, M1, S1, Bio1 and Chem1 during their AS.

    I see, and would it help looking at the personal statement of a person?

    And thanks for that, and alright then
    That's great to hear then, and I do, printed all the papers + have all the books to prepare, after my UKCAT I am going to do 2 solid months of BMAT prep, any advice?

    And I can't resit this year because of the new system, as it shows up, so even if I got a B in S1 I would keep it, as I think I have minimum 265/300 in total.

    Probably. Everything helps.

    What books do you have for the BMAT? Do you have this book that was just released for BMAT? I've heard pretty good feedback:
    Recomended BMAT book - 400Qs

    Hi guys, my name is Michael and I'm an international applicatn for 2012 from Canada!
    I was actually born in South Korea and lived there for 10 years before my family settled in Canada. I'm planning to apply to St. Andrews, KCL, Soton, and most likely HYMS or BSMS. I can't decide on my choice between HYMS and BSMS.

    My average for this school year (Grade 11... Grade 12 is the final year) was 92% overall, with 97% in biology, 91% in chemistry, and 97% in maths hopefully this is competitive enough.

    I'm taking my UKCAT next month on the 29th... wish me luck!

    pm me if you have any inquiries!



    Cheers,
    doctork2

    p.s. give me a shout if you're a canadian!

    I will be done with my PS in a few days, mind reviewing it when I put it on the PS Help section?

    And I have that book that you recommend, the official one, and the massive Kaplan one as well. What kind of scores would be considered as highly impressive?

    Oh yeah, i will, i'll be in bed by midnight for once! And umm, only like a couple of weeks? I'm not very good at organising my time it seems... i'm only doing it early so my friend can give me a lift to the test-centre (he's doing it too) considering it's nearly 2 hours away
