    Hmm is anyone starting their ps/ ukcat revision today?


    Better start some work since I spent the whole weekend drinking this past month away
    Hmm Im trying to revise for UKCAT, but I finished exams few weeks ago (Access course) so maybe give yourself a brak for few days first.

    HOWEVER (and Im only up to verbal reasoning section) UKCAT is impossible. Even with the answers I struggle to grasp some of the verbal reasoning questions. I can't seem to do better than 55% in any timed self-test and am wondering how on earth Im going to pass.

    Did Anyone else struggle with VR? Any suggestions??

    I'm trying to apply through school but everyone I've asked doesn't know the UCAS buzzword. :/ It's really quite annoying.
    e-mail someone at school?
    Or you could guess.. I mean mine was schoolabbreviation10 first time, then found out it was schoolabbreviation11 for cycle just gone, and next cycle's is schoolabbreviation12 so if you remember last years then just change the number

    I've booked mine today if that counts
    I think I'll start next week, I'm going for a nice weekend away with my boyfriend next weekend so obviously I have some shopping to do!
    Lets be honest, we've all worked so hard for these exams and we deserve at least a little bit of a break.

    Hi, could any one give me suggestion how to start my career in phlebotomy?

    I have come across few institutes that claim for phlebotomy training in 2 days that costs around £500. Would I be able to get a place in clinic / NHS if I do this course.

    Wrong place to post this... but I'll try to help.

    Don't spend £500 on a 2 day course, waste of your money, apply via NHS jobs website, attend interview and if you're keen enough etc then you get the job and they pay you to do the training.

    Haha exactly this! :rolleyes:
    I booked it for 1st August, just wanted it done before results, like you said but still wanted to give myself just enough time to really really prepare, but not too much time that I get lazy..

    8 different books?? I have like 2 which is better than last year (zero)
    LOL and UPO and this: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=621992
    Which will be useful i guess for extra practise if I still have time
    Gotta beat my last score up like it jumped on my mama. Word to yours :cool:

    I already vowed not to apply to any Scottish universities after my experience with Aberdeen
    This just reaffirmed my decision

    I've booked mine for the week after results, then hopefully it'll motivate me if I get good results and I won't have to go through it if I've got AAB

    Pretty epic stuff. I don't know the implications for scottish students wanting to undertake a 2nd degree will be though...

    If its £9000 I'm crying and bowing out of the process.
