1 month. However, 2 weeks is enough time to cover everything if you knuckle down - I did all questions in the question bank in 1 month and I work full -time.

Do you know what scores you were getting on the Medify Mocks?

Did you do better or worse in the real exam and in which sections?

Was anything surprisingly easy/difficult?

someone previously asked but I found mock tests to be so incredibly unreliable. I did 3 and got an average of 570, 620 and then also 740. Huge variation. it's little known but quite a significant amount of your score will be down to just sheer luck. So I wouldn't worry about how representative they are. Medify are generally good in terms of difficulty level but I find the scores to be somewhat inaccurate.

Advice

UKCAT universities focus on your average/total score instead of subsections so if you have any weak subsections make sure you balance/overpower it with stronger subsections. Looking at my subsection results, I scored just 540 in Verbal Reasoning however in Quantitative Reasoning I scored 830 to compensate for my weakness.

Good luck!

I should have done better in all of them to be honest. The SJT was quite a shock for me. I do generally find the VR section very difficult though. My practices for AR and DM were a lot better than my real one, but my QR in the real one was miles better. There were a few things during the exam I tripped up on, just out of panic, so if you're not a person that panics a lot and doesn't get nervous easily, you should be fine.

I used the UKCAT practice resources (free) and Medify for 2 months. I also looked at the 600 questions book that was made before DM was introduced before Medify and after the free resources. You probably think it won't get better for you with more practice considering my results and how long I practiced for, but I generally don't improve at anything I do.

I could have done better but I concentrated too much on the VR texts so I had to guess a few at the end...
I used the official UKCAT website with all the practice questions and exams and the 1250 question book
