I understand how to answer the questions and generally able to answer them but get about half way through the questions by the time the time for that section runs out.
Any tips on how to speed up and get to answer all questions?
Good/usefull resources?
all advice is welcome.

What website/resources are you currently using?

VR: I read the questions then ound the answers, instead of reading the whole passage. For the statement ones, start with statements with dates/numbers/proper nouns in them, which are easier to find in the text and therefore quicker to confirm or not.

DM: nlot much to say apart from try not to spend too long on the 5 answer ones

QR: not time pressured in the real thing, much easier qs than medify etc, make sure you're fine with % change, time, conversions etc which come up a lot

AR: practice practice practice

SJ: If you find this time pressured get your head checked haha
Hope this helps and isnt too late

Hi all!

I’m applying for GEM and am about a week into preparing for the UKCAT. I’m finding the timing really tough at the moment and only manage to get through about half of the AR questions before the time is up. I’m also finding that a lot is the AR questions on Medify are really hard and take too long to find the pattern. Hopefully this will get easier?!

You should get Medify (i've got it)

and do a test from it. It will tell you how much time you spend on the sections + average time of a student.

I have Medify and am finding it really helpful but find that I’m spending too long on the questions. 🙁

Especially for QR: use the keyboard commands e.g. if I remember correctly, control F is flag, contorl C is calculator. Don't use the mouse as this is extremely time consuming. If this gives you some sort of reassurance, I got really high scores in QR and AR but I didn't get to go through all the questions, I just spent the last 10 seconds in each section to randomly choose answers. Just flag those that you struggle with, and leave them till the very end
