    Hello,

    QR can be really tough. If you're struggling to understand the questions, don't try and do them under time pressure just yet. Do practice questions at your own pace.

    Once you start getting the hang of questions and think you're getting lots of them right, then start doing them under time pressure. You need try and be a master of mental maths to make sure you don't spend too much time doing sums and using the fiddly UKCAT Calculator.

    One of the doctors here in the office has written a blog about UKCAT QR and how to best prepare. It's got some helpful formulae you should learn off-by-heart as well as computer shortcuts and general QR techniques.

    You can read it here.

    Hope you find it useful!
