    Hi guys I am international student (gap year) applying this year to med schools in the uk. I did IB and i got a great score (40 points) which really opens a lot of med school choices for me in the uk however, I have been practising the ukcat for about a month and i started doing practice mocks today from the ukcat website, i used kaplan and modify as my main resources and they had helped me a lot in my preparation for the ukcat nevertheless i have been getting low scores on the official mock exams, especially on ar and qr which are my best of modify and kaplan, so is the ukcat mock a good represntative of the real thing? cause its just horrible for me

    Most people say (and that was definitely my opinion) that the official mocks are harder than the real thing. My scores in them ranged from bad to low average and I was really worried about QR and AR, but ended up getting 850 and 730 in them respectively on the day. Try not to worry about it before the test and do your best, you'll be fine

    Hi! Im sitting my UKCAT on friday. Just did the UKCAT practice A and didn't do too well so its good to hear there's still hope!
    The QR questions on the practice were mostly tables and very wordy leaving me little to no time to do each question so I ended up guessing the majority of the section.
    Did you find the real one like that?
    Also what kind of calculations were there? mainly percentages?

    Thanks for any help! x

    Ah no, not at all. I think I had like one or two QR questions that had really long and complicated tables, and I guessed my way through them. Most were really simple and easy to read. I did my test a couple of months ago so I don't remember exactly, but the calculations are mainly really basic (division, multiplication, adding things together, percentages etc.)

    Ah ok that's really good to know. Literally just finished the official mock B and did even worse! So worried about it now. :cry2:
