    Whilst at the start of my preparation about a week back I was finding VR and AR very time pressuring, now after doing a mock, I've found I'm struggling to even finish over half of the QR questions?! In terms of the difficulty of questions, I can do them, but why am I taking so long? I did the Practice Mock A on the official website btw, did anyone else struggle to finish it as well?? And does anyone know how the Medify QR questions compare to the actual QR questions? I've consistently managed to complete the Medify QR questions correctly much quicker than the average time, but that's meaningless if those questions are unrealistic.

    Medify closely represents the actual exam. AR is the most time pressured, although QR is not far behind. Keep practising and your timings will improve.

    Hi there!

    As the poster above has said, more practice will help to improve your timings! We've recently published a blog on How to Manage Your UKCAT Timing, which might help.

    Otherwise, we have plenty of tips for QR and VR below:
    - UKCAT Verbal Reasoning Tips
    - UKCAT Quantitative Reasoning Tips

    And you can also use our free UKCAT Question Bank too, which has thousands of questions and detailed performance tracking so you can measure your progress!

    Hope this helps!
