    So I took the UKCAT and I performed terribly.

    Verbal R: 500
    Quantitative R: 720
    Abstract R: 560
    Situational Judgement: Band 3

    I honestly never thought of applying to uni's in the UK, it was very sudden. I basically found out about the exam a few days before the registration deadline. I had less than a week to prepare, and I literally didn't know anything. I know I'm kinda stupid because I'm supposed to do research very early but I'm also at an American high school so no one here really knows about these British admission tests.

    Now I'm thinking of taking the BMAT, I also haven't got a lot of time to prepare but I'll do my best. What should I do?? I'm lost and I need to finish my UCAS applications asap!

    That is a very low UKCAT score, cut off points for uni's are coming out Saturday so I would have a look but your average will prevent you from applying to a number of UKCAT uni's. You can't really revise for UKCAT anyway- I took 3 days preparation. If your really set on applying in the uk you need to take the BMAT- some people find it easier. However the fact you come from the American education system may mean your science knowledge is different so I'm not sure if that will give you the edge or disadvantage you.

    Its OK, the band 3 might set you back but your scores are OK, if you go on http://www.applyingfordentalschool.co.uk/ukcat.html, it breaks down average UKCAT score and also has a table so you can see what scores value it more than others which should help you know were to apply
