    I heard from TSR that it goes S2 > S1 > S3?
    Yes, I was the one that said it.

    It applies to certain Cambridge colleges (well, in fact majority).

    But if the canditate messes up section 3 (i.e. gets 2.0 or below), then I will take a much closer look at their interview marks, regardless of how well they scored in section 1/2.

    This is because the S3 bears close resemblence on the Tripos essays that you will sit as a cambridge medical student.

    Oh I see :laugh:

    And fair enough, and at interview do they question your answer to the section 3? As in do they ask questions about your section 3 answer?

    And I can understand that, will try to nail that too.

    Test 1:
    1) 37/65 - 600
    2) 38/65 - 600
    3) 37/65 - 600
    4) 42/65 - 650
    5) 43/65 - 670
    6) 47/65 - 730

    Test 2:
    1) 25/65 - 500
    2) 30/65 - 550
    3) 33/65 - 570
    4) 27/65 - 530
    5) 30/65 - 550

    As you can see, i find test 1 significantly easier, i'll keep trying both until i get near enough 60ish / 65

    Ahaha thankyou



    Just did a practice test-
    VR 26/44 630
    QR 13/36 530
    AR 42/65 650
    DA 20/28 730
    Avg - 635

    Note to self: Don't just give up on the QR half way through and put B for each answer :lol:

    And ergh, DA annoys me, I finished 15 minutes early and that's my best score :confused:

    Ah well :rolleyes:

    No, they will not ask you questions on your Section 3 answers.
    Unless it is to ask why you scored so badly in it

    The only ones in the "proper" format are on the official website, but if you're looking for some more questions then onexamination is pretty good - but it costs. £26 for one months access.

    You've done more than enough really then. The UKCAT is a weird examination. If you've done as much practice as this, I don't really think there's much more left to do!

    Wondering if it'd be stupid or pointless to do the 600Q book twice? and the 400Q one twice too?

    I'm thinking of doing my EPQ on the NHS reforms, privatising or not. What do you guys think about this? (doing EPQ on it not where you stand on the NHS privatising debate)
