I procrastinated and now I’ve only got 5 weeks /37 days until my UCAT exam. Is that enough to prepare efficiently to get an above average grade or should I consider pushing my exam by a week

Did you have a look at the type of questions till now? Do you have a rough idea what it constitutes?

I'm on a 5 week study schedule too, based on how it's going I could even do the exam a little earlier but the slots are gone and I would feel incomplete lol. Everyone is different, it depends on you but I heard the recommended amount based on the best performances is 6 weeks (so not too different)

It's not like an exam where you need to memorise loads of knowledge and regurgitate it, it's more practising technique, being familiar with what each section is like, recognising patterns, literacy/numeracy skills and time keeping skills. It really is just practice. Once you're in the midst of a routine you'll calm down. I was more stressed before I actually started practicing

Again everyone is different and you are most likely more intelligent than me and don't need this much but I typically do it for 9-12pm on weekdays. I know people who did wayyyyy less though
When I say practice helps, I mostly mean AR. The other sections, I find it easier to use my existing skills like basic reading, numeracy, common sense ethics but I understand what you mean AR is very strange and different to any exam questions we've ever seen. So when something is unfamiliar you need to get stuck in and get used to it.
But use SCANS to make sure you check over everything and the more practice questions you do, the better and faster you get at spotting it.
