    Think I have left preparation a little too late aha. How possible is it to get a score of say 700+ if I smash it for like 6+ hours a day the next 4 days?

    You're risking your whole future here. If your score is too low then you won't be able to apply to ANY medical schools that require the UKCAT. I advise you to reschedule it till next month. You won't lose anything by doiing so.

    Why don't you just rearrange it if you don't feel prepared? This won't cost you anything unless you're wanting to do it in September onwards, in which case it'll cost you an extra £15 unless you have a bursary. You want to make sure that you get the best possible scores and if you're unable to do that in a few days then rearranging it for a few weeks time might make the difference between you getting interviews and not getting interviews.

    Highly unlikely, the UKCAT is not a test you can cram for as there is no content.
    Unless you can master your technique and timing for each section in a few days, i'd strongly reccomend you reschedule and allow at least 2-3 weeks preparation time before you take it.

    Thanks was never aware you could reschedule it. I guess I'll reschedule it. Would you say a week is long enough to prepare?

    No, at least 3 weeks.
