    Well I sat mine on the 3rd of October. but towards the end of the summer holidays is ideal. then you can practice over summer and not have to worry about it when you're back at college :-)

    I want to take UKCAT in early summer, (preferably second week of July), so I don't need to worry it over the summer and I can focus on other aspects. Is that ideal?

    Any previous UKCAT takers? How frequent is the UKCAT exam? and normally when is the UKCAT exam?

    good idea! focus on p.s. and experience etc. You book the date and time you want and sit it in a test centre :-) you get your results as soon as you finish

    Does anyone have tips on doing well in the BMAT essay question bit? I haven't done any practise yet but I saw a few example essay questions and I didn't even understand some of the vocabulary they used. And you seem to have to have really good general knowledge.

    Oh my bad Urm well my sixth form have this medicine group were a teacher basically equips us for medicine and weve done a couple of essays on bmat. My advice would be to make sure you can time yourself and write something that is not one sided but discusses both sides.

    I am struggling with chemistry (damn edexcel), but i am adjusting it
