I have 50% extra time for A levels are UKCAT
I got 7A*s and 2 8s at GCSE
Currently in Y12
Predicated A*AA
6 weeks work experience with long term care home volunteering
Scared I will do badly at UKCAT - were do you think I should apply?
My school is awful at giving advice
I completed an EPQ though my school won't put it through so no UCAS points for me

What do you mean 50% extra time? Your first sentence doesnt make sense.
Do you mean you are resitting the year?
Have you changed subjects?

If an exam was 2 hours long I would get 3 hours to sit it

It depends on your definition of doing badly at UKCAT. With those GCSE grades, there will be options where you can apply successfully with a UKCAT score of 2400 (average 600 per sub test), or even lower. There are others who use BMAT rather than UKCAT.

There's a prominent thread about which medical school to apply to, but you will get best advice once you know your ukcat score.

Hope that helps. If not, then feel free to follow up for clarification.

Theres the UKCAT version where you get extra time, you'll need to apply for it but it should help. I think that the extra time is set in stone however and I also dont imagine you get an extra 50%. I think you just gotta try your hardest for it, practise a lot and hope you do well.

Edit:

Try apply for the UKCATSEN50 you get 50% extra time if you provide evidence. You should do fine, everyone finds the UKCAT hard. As already said, try your hardest in the UKCAT. it means a lot.

You will still get extra time for the UKCAT too though. And in med school exams. Don't see the problem?

Once you start work its another story, but that's a topic for another thread!
