Im not going to lie, im so stressed for ucat. I spend 5 hours a day revising for ucat and thats all i do. My ucat is on sep 5 while mocks start on sep 21. Do you have any tips for me studying for mocks and my personal statement since i havent started.

my ucat is in 10 days and my mockks are at a similar time to yours as well . i'm also doing 5hrs of ucat a day and then i'm doing 1hr 40. - 2 hrs of 2 out of 3 alevels a day. i'm ngl i'm also starting to feel a bit stressed becayse i have been practising for a month now for my ucat and i feel like i haven't improved and the fact that it's in 10 days is making me feel super worried. i'm not too worried about my mocks now because obviously once ucat is over you can prioritise the ucat revision time from before into the mocks revision so i guess focus on revising for your ucat for now but then also include a few hours of mock revision as well .during your rest periods, start researching personal statement examples especially as medicine is a competitive course and start now because september will be a hectic month for everyone so don't procastinate and start now! hope this helps

Thank you. Yea im gonna start doing 1-2 hour of a level revision but the thing is it's soon hard cos I'm so tired after doing ucat and get so unmotivated. But I'll try my best. Good luck to you too.

For UKCAT u dont need to overdo it, i think i did a couple hours revision a day for 2-3 weeks ish and it went well. The main thing is getting familiar with the timings. I only used Medify.
