I’m not sure most probably the University of Sheffield or Queen Mary university. What about you?
When are you taking your UKCAT though? After you send out the application or during the summer?

Heyy...

I did the UKCAT in 2016 (for 2017 entry) and in 2017 (for 2018 entry), and went on a Kaplan course in 2016. I have copies of 2 books that they gave us on my laptop, one called the 'Mastery book' which is basically a book full of questions, and another called the 'Strategy Book' which basically gives you tips on how to approach the different sections. I'm looking to convert them into a pdf format and then sell them to anyone who was interested, but I wanted to see if anyone was actually interested in buying it before I spent time into converting it into pdf format, as one book is nearly 200 pages long and the other is over 300 pages.

Using these resources, I got a UKCAT average of 820 (2017 entry) and 732.5 (2018 entry). And I'd be looking to charge £50 for both books (which I think is fair considering the Kaplan course costs over £300)

Let me know if your interested, by responding to the thread or sending me a PM, just so I can get an idea of whether it will be worth me spending my time doing this.

Thanks for this! I was thinking of mainly just using Medify & the official practice papers on the UKCAT website. I'm planning to do it as early as possible – going to spend this month revising for it & do it in early July.

Any other advice or resources I should be using?

Hey @LifeIsSoHard, I did exactly the same thing, but used both Medify and Docme.I found Docme to be way easier to use. They always do discounts on their season passes, so you can always get it cheaper than Medify. I think Medify have increased their questions even more this year, but realistically, I never got close to finishing 4,000 questions.

Hi, I just did my UKCAT today and got a much lower score than my medify mocks.
I achieved:
VR: 530
DM: 590
QR: 730
AR: 680

Average: 632.5, with Band 2 in SJT.
GCSEs: 9A*s, 2As A levels: 2A*s 1A prediction

Should i consider taking a year out and reapplying? Which medical schools do you think I could apply to? I am very distressed and heartbroken, so any help would help. Thanks.

Birmingham- good option for you! Also try KCL, I’ve asked a lot of people and it’s a myth that they need 700+ scores... if you have 8+A*s at GCSE, you have a good chance apparently

Hey, you never know, apply and see! Your academic history is good, and many uni's look at the whole applicant not just UKCAT score in isolation.
You have nothing to loose by applying now and everything to gain (even if it's just invaluable application experience and clear areas to work on for next year's application).
Good luck ^-^
