Ucat prep

Hi,
I am a year 12 student going to year thirteen and in a week I have my Ucat exam coming up I wanted to ask if the fluctuation of the scores I get is normal.
Also, can anyone give me some tips for decision making as it is the one I struggle with the most?

thank you :smile:

What is the range of your fluctuations? Some amount of fluctuation will be normal so it depends.

With DM, is it a particular question type that you struggle with? For me, I can't do the interpreting information questions that well so I normally skip them and come back to them at the end so that I can do the questions I find easier with enough time and I end up saving up time on them to use for the ones I find difficult.

Also doing my UCAT next week, good luck for yours! How are you feeling overall?
