    And yeah I hear ya, and no nothing mandatory I mean already observed a hell of a lot of machinery and expertise, thanks for the heads up, back to PS and BMAT :dry:
    I'm tempted to reschedule my UKCAT to earlier so I can have it done and focus on BMAT, since I've almost finished the 600Q book.

    Mine is early September, roughly 2 months for each I think is the right amount

    I hope the two months'll be enough for BMAT, since the time I have for UKCAT is in the holidays whereas for BMAT it would be with A2 work. If I had to choose I'd want to do better in it than the UKCAT.

    Starting with an anecdote can work, as long as you can make it flow nicely without it sounding too cliched.
    Thanks, it probably can't sound more cliched than it already is.

    I think I'm going to go back and do some of the VR again from the 600 Q book as that's my worst section but in a few weeks so I have time to forget the answers. It's probably a good idea to keep using new material too though.
    Cool thanks x

    Translate your PS into French and submit it to UCAS.

    Yeah same here, but UKCAT pretty much prepares us for section 1, so it'd mainly be just section 2 and 3 we need to revise, but i agree, i want to get an outstanding score on the BMAT, aiming for a decent 700-800 for UKCAT

    surely it'd be easier just to write it in French rather than translating from English?
    but naah, i'll stick to english

    I've done this, but it sounds a bit clunky. I'm trying to reword it, but I seem to forget to mention the "why medicine" bit.

    That part is usually full of cliches, you don't need to have a distinct section. You could mention it when talking about work experience 'Seeing the work the staff do made me sure that medicine is for me' or something

    The questions are of a similar standard to the actual test. But unfortunately the book cannot replicate nerves, which makes the real thing much harder.
