the 28th September is the last test day.
Consider keele as they only care of minimum 2400, but uses the roles and responsibility form.
Honestly, you should have prepared during the summer holidays, if you assume revising UCAT 2 hours a day..l it is possible
We usually recommend preparing for the UCAT in 6-8 weeks. With 1 month to prepare, you will need to be more disciplined and spend more time on the UCAT each day than if you had given yourself 2 months to prepare. This is do-able, but you'll need to have a solid plan in place where you can fit everything in (https://www.themedicportal.com/blog/how-long-should-you-prepare-for-the-ucat/#:~:text=We%20usually%20recommend%20preparing%20for,you%20can%20fit%20everything%20in.)

To time to prepare is also for the phycological stress and pressure. Do your best.

Yes is doable with focus

Read through the UCAT sticky thread for hints and tips and some moral support and encouragement. If you have ucat questions post them there as the experts keep an eye on the thread. Use a sticky thrrad wherever you can as they tend to hold all thr info in one place.

If you have a number pad on your keyboard that will help a LOT on speed for QR. If not, invest in one or borrow one. Practice with it and the UCAT onscreen calc to get speed up

Good luck

OP. Good advice re the need to focus.

Once you have your score post it in the what uni megathread in the format requested for help in making a strategic application.

NB. Keele no longer use the R&R form. Whichever uni is suggested in the which uni megathread for you, you will still need to read the application and selection policies available for each med school for 2024 Entry very carefully as bits and bobs change each year. Do this direct on their website rather than relying on others interpretation of it.

Good luck.
