UCAT (formerly UKCAT) 2021 entry discussions megathread [Part 2 of 2]Watch
Wow that score's amazing! Well done!
I have a fw qs about using the calculator during the exam:
1. Can you use backspace to remove the numbers?
2. Do you have to type '0' for when you type e.g. '0.99' or can you just type '.99'?
3.Whilst doing the official ucat mocks, I sometimes have to click ON/C to actually be able to type the numbers in but sometimes I didn't. Did you have to click ON/C every time in the exam?
It's because out of all the psychology graduates, not all of them studied developmental, but out of all the people who took the social psychology course, all of them had to take developmental. Therefore you can't conclude that everyone who studied developmental also studied social because some of the graduates could have studied developmental without taking the social psychology course - it implies that it is possible to take developmental by itself.
does anyone know where I can find the spreadsheet where everyone had put their scores for the Medify mini-mocks and mocks..I remember seeing it numerous times a few weeks ago but I can't seem to find it in the thread
What part of the statement indicates you can be a psychology student taking developmental and not social ? It says "except those who took a course in social psychology" , so doesn't that therefore mean the only people who take the course are people who have taken social paychology ?
What does the solution say?
Basically im set to have my ucat on september 3rd but the thing is from now to then im only free a total of 4 days cause all the other days i have other commitments such as going to my aunts funeral cousins etc...
I put my exam on the 3rd cause my school starts on the 4th and ill need to study for mocks otherwise i wont get the neccessary predicted grades.
Im not sure what to do cause at the moment im averaging around 600 in mocks and i wanted to get that to 750 but i dont think i have the time.
one thing i could do is reschedule it later into september and this would give me time to get better but then i have a clash with my other exams so im not sure what to do.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Thank you. You can use backspace. I generally wrote 0.99 rather than .99 so I don't really know and no I didn't need to use on/c. One thing is make sure number lock is off. Had a mini heart attack when it didn't work at first😂😂
For q number 3 I meant as in once you opened the calculator, could you type numbers in straight away or did you have to press ON/C to activate the calculator?
No because 'except those who took a course in social psychology' simply means everyone who took social took developmental. However, you cannot assume that nobody else took developmental because the stem says 'not all graduates took developmental EXCEPT those who took a course in social psychology', which only tells you that the people who took social took developmental. The key is in the 'not all' at the beginning of the stem.
