Just to clarify, if you are talking UCAT this year then it can only be used this admissions cycle, so you'd need to be 2021 entry or 2022 entry (deferred).
Timing is the hard part for everyone, but tbf 50% isn't actually that bad. You can google to see what score that would convert to out of 900
Thank you!

There is lots of discussion and tips on this thread.

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...1#post88129646

If you are looking to go to med school in three years time there’s little point in doing the UCAT this year. It needs to be done in the year prior to actual entry. Also Bristol is a very UCAT heavy medical school and has one of the highest cut off scores.
Thank you! I emailed before and Bristol admission office suggests me to try to apply for 2021 entry in this year. It feels kinda weird but I will give it a try. Besides I don't have any other academic study to do at the moment lol.

So I work on some VR again tonight, Ugh, I need at least 3 mins for a single test article.
I found it is super hard and time consuming to scan words in the article, made my understandings of the content and statements all mixed together.
Jesus.

Quick tips: Medify is great for timing and practice but I thought maybe they overscored a bit. Also try to use a desktop/PC if you have access to one as much as you can as that is what you will be taking the actual UCAT on and it's really different to a laptop, especially with the keypad calculator. Lastly, make use of the official UCAT website question bank as they are the closest in my opinion to the actual test, and some of the questions came up again in the real thing! Hope this helps

Alright, today I tried a QR which score is ok but time wasn't enough. Need to practice mental calculation.
VR feels a little better than first I saw it, emmm...maybe just a feeling.

Practice is the key to UCAT success! With more practice you’ll find the sections become better, good luck!

Medify is really good for improving your UCAT. I would work through that there are hundreds of questions.
Yeah I used Medify it was good but the only thing i would recommend is doing more practice on the STJ because on Medify they are a bit too kind for those kind of questions. I can’t complain though I have a medicine offer regardless of my average UCAT and i couldn’t have done it without Medify
Definitely recommend it too!

I second this too, my SJT was let down badly two years ago, as medify put me into a false sense of security ahah

ok yesterday I did a few questions on every section. Still struggling I would say.
Today I quickly run through MSAG free videos (just realised they will expire tomorrow), make few notes about AR, this is definitely my weak point, and VR. Now I'm doing some AR questions I did few days ago to see if I can see the pattern this time. Don't know this will work or not but have to try.
For VR, I don't know other way except practicing more and more, I really hate this, time is not enough and when I check the answers, all of them seem reasonable but I just can't find them during the practice.
For other sections, I think I will start them from around next week, but still focus my time more on these two nasty tasks. Hope I will see some difference later on.

Yesterday I did a few VR and AR again, and watched A LOT videos on Youtube about UCAT tips.
They did give me some thinkings, hopfully I can use them in my preparation.

Today is AR day, I finished all type1&2 questions on my 1250 UKCAT book, my improvement is not very observable so I definitely need to do those again (I didn't even do the timing! just tried to find the patterns).
Anyway, it is Sunday, I hope I can sleep for more than 6 hrs. My 10mths daughter usually awake every 4 hrs so I haven't had a long sleep in 10mths😪
A tip, the 1250 UCAT question book’s AR is much harder than the UCAT test itself!
