I did mine early, I think it was in the first week of testing, it meant I got it out of the way and I didn't have to think about it over the summer

I averaged 700 and something, mainly due to a score of something like 870 on one of the sections

is there any advantage for your application the earlier you take the test?
Stupid question I know but I heard that the earlier you send off the application the better and was wondering if not doing the UKCAT until october would make a difference?
What do you mean? Difference in scoring, you'll do better the later you take it because you have more time etc. ? I'm sure it's just all down to how you feel, if you want to take it as late as possible and you take it early then that'd make a difference. Just take it whenever you want. However, there is a price difference.

I heard that the earlier you send off the UCAS application the earlier uni's recieve it. Is this true?

Oh UCAS. I was talking about UKCAT sorry. For medicine all applications have to be in by 15th October anyway. As long as it's before then I shouldn't think it makes a difference (although someone else should confirm this). The last date for UKCAT is the 10th October anyway.

Plus the BMAT is taken on November 5th and is sent to universities later, for example, I doubt it will make any difference when you take the UKCAT (as long as you take it before the 10th Oct!)

Yeh that's true, but I don't know about your initial question though, I'm not sure whether you have to have done the UKCAT by the time you send off your application

Do they send the scores to the medschools you've applied for on your UCAS when you have both taken it and send your UCAS, or is written down on your UCAS?

I assume the universities just request the results when they've received your application, although I'm not 100% on that

You should check with both UCAS and Pearson Vue before doing it, else you run the risk of your application being a major balls-up :p:

As long as you aren't planning on doing anything unusual with your application timings there won't be a problem, I'm sure they've got the system sorted by now

Really ^o)? I've never heard that before? I thought they liked to try and process applications as they get them in order to prevent a backlog of applicants
