    I was doing some UKCAT practice, and wondering if you still get full marks if the answer is partially correct?
    Thank you!

    Don't quote me on this, but I think situational judgement is the only section that credits partially correct answers. I believe you get half marks for them.

    Hey :-) In SJT you do get given some credit depending on how close your answer is to the 'correct' answer. However for the other sections of the test (VR, QR, AR, DM) there is only one correct answer and you get zero for the wrong answer.

    However.... if you are talking about how your raw scores are converted into the score out of 900, that is a different question! Nobody really knows how they convert the scores (though many postulate something like percentage*(600) + 300) but it is true that you can get 900 out of 900 without scoring 100% of the raw marks. I suppose it works a bit like UMS in that sense.

    Hope that helps!

    "Situational Judgement Test
    Within the Situational Judgement test, full marks are awarded for a question if the response matches the correct answer and partial marks awarded if the response is close to the correct answer."

    Say for example someone does the SJT section of the UKCAT and gets all the questions partially correct, what sort of band do you reckon they'll get? Band 1? Band 2?

    Band 2-3 maybe.
