It can vary but they tend to be a fairly accurate representation. I got a much higher score in the real thing than in the mocks though

ughhh, like im going for the biomed to med route anyway and like two foundation courses but i still wanna get a decent score on this ukcat to be considered for those foundation courses as well yknow??
i do well on the timed practice tests, for example when i do 30 DM ones, i get around 20-something marks but in the actual minimocks and mocks, it always drops to 10 and its so frustrating :/

yeah, im applying this year!.. like i just did a timed VR practice question one and got 28/41 which equates to around 670, yet in my mock (medify mock 3) yesterday i got 570, im really open to the biomed route since ive spoken to loads of people who are either doctors and med grads who wish they did the biomed route since it expands your knowledge etc, and ive seen some biomed or applied medical courses which allow transfers like swansea...im still worried about my UKCAT though, i wanna get a decent score ah

Utilise your minute 'breather' between each section. It may be that doing it all at once frazzles your brain a little which causes a lower score

All I can really say is the more you practice the better you’ll do. I got high 600s to mid 700s in mocks and got 807.5 in the real thing

Thank you! With 4 days you just need to be doing as much practice as you can but try to chill a bit the day before so you’re fresh and alert for the real thing

I did one mock the day before but not sure how much difference it made. I don’t think you have to but you can if it would make you feel more prepared

Have you been identifying why it’s gone badly and looking at how to improve on those things?

same thing except when I do mini-mocks I show improvement for QR but when I do the practice time-limit I get lower than I do in the mocks, and it's the opposite for verbal reasoning, I think it depends on the type of questions you get given.

You'll be fine so long as you keep on practicing, then at least you know you tried, mines at the end of sep on the 21st and I honestly think I'm going to blow it..
Good luck for your exam, best tip I can give, is to relax like the day before don't stress yourself out, do some questions on the day of your exam, not too much, also go back on all the things you get wrong, you never know similar questions could appear on the test day.

VR in real exam has same difficulty level of passages, maybe even easier, but the question options are harder.
QR / DM is same, maybe DM is easier than medify, but definitely not harder.
AR is easier than medify.
I did worse on the real thing but it was completely due to my maths failing ://
