Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

It's good for qr, ok for VR, absolute crap for ar, and too easy for da (UKCAT made da a lot harder this year because of the errors the previous year).

It's just plain wrong! Most of the patterns on Medify look like they've been drawn by a 3 year old who can't hold a pencil properly. Whereas the actual text has proper patterns and things you're supposed to look for. I found the Kaplan book to be the best overall to be honest, but there aren't that many questions in there so I also used Medify a bit and also the 600q book.

Sure! VR 850 QR 790 AR 880 DA 740.
So average 815. Sjt band 1 but they discounted it for everyone this year because there were marking errors.

How long are you planning on having it for? Because I thought the UKCAT exam wasn't till July earliest and most people spend about a month before, with maybe 2 weeks hardcore revision. I'm not sure revising specifically for UKCAT for ages helps - just core skills like simple calculations quickly etc.

Haha thanks. Yeah I got 4 interviews, offer from southampton so far, waiting to hear back from newcastle and KCL, and withdrew from Warwick because I got my Soton offer before the Warwick interview all for grad entry though

I had it for about a month before my test and found it helpful personally It really helps with timing especially the mock tests. The real test was most similar to the "hard" mock test btw

Wow you definitely don't need it for that long! I had it for about a month, maybe 2? I honestly wouldn't even bother thinking about it until you've done your as exams!

Thats absolutely amazing!!

Would you say doing just the 600Q book is enough? My UKCAT is on Tuesday 6th October and I'm taking it overseas so I doubt I'll be able to get the kaplan book locally.. I was thinking of getting medify for a week but after reading about how the AR is bad and the DA is too easy, I'm slightly put off :/ Any suggestions? (Can we find mock papers online?)

Hi 73iso

If you are looking for resources to help with your UCKAT prep, perhaps I can help.

Do you have your test booked yet?

There are lots of resources available, it can be difficult to know what to spend your time and money on.

I would say that when choosing books, do make sure that they are the most up to date and comprehensive books on the market. We often hear from people who are using books that are really out of date and so not giving themselves the best chance of success.

Are you considering an online course? Again, there are lots out there so choosing the right one for you is important. I would look at what resources you get as part of the courses this varies largely. Do give me shout if you would like any advice on this.

In the meantime, you might be interested in reading our blog for some tips on getting ready for your UKCAT.

Hope that helps.

I think the 600Q is outdated. It still contains DA questions. It also doesn't have any SJT questions.

No I would say that it is not enough.
