It says the promise of rich pickings. Not necessarily the guarantee.

Promise in the dictionary says "declaration, assurance or guarantee"...

I think in that context it's referring more to the possibility that they'll be successful, not the guarantee.

I disagree with the answer to this UKCAT practice question...

Q: Online shopping offers the criminal the promise of rich pickings.

passage: "over $50b was spent online last year and it is hardly surprising that criminals want a share of the action..."

Now I thought this would be C as nothing in the passage suggests that the criminals were/are successful in their endeavours. It says that they "want" a share of the action...

the answer says TRUE and says that the two sentences are interchangeable of the same meaning...

:eek:
I thought that too :/ I hate how stupid some of the ones are... silly little tricksters these ukcat question writers!

Can I ask:

-What size the whiteboard?
-How thick is the board pen?
-Why the hell can't we use paper?!

The third question was meant merely in jest

Well, I am thinking of applying again given I get the grades that is AAA. The reason they gave was that it is super competitive to get into a med school (like I did not know that) but I am not convinced because I do not think that is a satisfactory explaination. However, they did subtley hinted me on my rejection letter that my reference from the school was not great! which is kinda plausible coz my UKCAT score, grades and the personal statement were fine.

You get A4 sized white board with normal whiteboard marker pen at the UKCAT test.

What unis are you considering?


EDIT: I had applied to Cambridge, Peninsula, Lecister and Cardiff.

Hey do you mind if I ask ou if you'd applied to Cambridge (Murray Edwards to be specific) last year. Because I get this feeling that I recognise you from somewhere?

Dont worry, you've found yourself a friend now. I havent prepared much either, the smell of failure from last year puts me off from working hard... What unis did you apply to? I had applied to Cambridge, Peninsula, Lecister and Cardiff.

Surely you can't really write much on an A4 whiteboard?!
I easily fill an A4 page of paper with a BIRO doing a mock test!! How many boards am I gonna go through?!

I hope there's not a limit :eek:
