Thank you! VR I honestly usually read the question quick before the text as I find it easier to spot it within the text that way, or get an idea of it. Honestly though VR is so hard, I am surprised I got that! AR I am starting to notice patterns now as I have done so much practice, I don't typically use SCANS unless really struggling, but then I usually triage and move on. I tend to enjoy AR as well! I have to say though DM in that mock was SOO much harder than anything ive practiced before!

My test isn't until Monday morning, but honestly, my best advice would be to do a short warm-up on sections- particularly if there's one you're worried about- then look after yourself and try to relax until your test.

I've had this problem too- I think something about the screen re-sizing when you're done throws off the site a bit, it's very frustrating. Try not to worry, as disappointing as it is. What I've done before is speed back through the questions already done, pick the answers out as before, then just continue on.

I’m really struggling with QR timed practise on medify. I feel like I’m able to attempt the question with a method but I end up taking too long for most questions and run out of time. Sometimes both my accuracy and timing is completely off though. Any tips?

So I went to sit my test for the third time this week at home and yet again I am unable to take a picture of my drivers license - did anyone encounter this problem, and if so, what did you do? OnVue and Pearson could not assist at all.

Anyone know what are the best and most representative resources for each UCAT section? I believe medify is good for AR and DM but what about the other sections?

Congratulations for finishing, and for some great scores!

I think most universities use the overall score or the average to assess UCAT performance, but if you aren't sure, do check with the unis you intend to apply to

Hi

So I want to post about my testing experience at home this morning or should I say lack of. After 3 failed attempts at trying to do this exam this week I have finally reached a point of giving up. Did anyone else have issues with their Drivers Licence not uploading or being unable to take a picture of it?. I called the test centre twice, one person very unhelpful, the second slightly better and no resolve. There is no technology support at all to help you.
