    I think the exam is a lot easier than most practise tests online and in books. I done the quantitative reasoning test on the official site the night before and got 4 right, but on the actual day I turned up and got a score of 690. The abstract section is pretty similar to the site but abstract reasoning tends to improve with practice. Once you're able to start seeing patterns then it becomes a lot easier. I used the 1000 UKCAT Questions book for abstract which explained patterns in depth which made it easier, however if you are going to use the 1000 questions book, don't bother with the QR section - its 100x easier in the exam.

    Good luck!

    Thanks, and Wat kinda patterns did u encounter on the day? Was there easy ones like symmetry, cause some on the website are really hard for eg, 2 circles = 4 sq , 3 triangle = 1 sq like with 3/4 rules
