Would you be able to compare all sections to the UKCAT practice papers (1 and 2). Did you do both? I found AR on the second one to be really tricky. DA was fine. VR was as expected, not sure whether to use the strategy of read the question first, or to quickly read the text to understand what is going on. Advise me? QR is horrid, I always panic so must learn to calm down. Was the real thing a fair bit easier than both practice 1 and practice 2?After worrying about the UKCAT for the past two weeks. I finally sat for it this morning. and got
VR: 640 --> I read the question first before scanning the passage for keywords and answers...but i think i could have practised more!
QR: 780 --> I guessed a few and to be honest...this score comes as a surprise to me as well coz i started panicking mid-way thru this section coz my answers dun fit the options given for some questions
AR: 870 --> in my opinion, the easiest section, easier than the two ukcat practice papers....but then again...it could be that im lucky to get the easy questions!
DA: 720 --> Translated all the codes, i will recommend doing that for the DA.
Practice definitely helped alot. But i have to say that luck is also really important. I did the UKCAT Practice paper 2 (from the website) and got less than half correct for AR. couldnt finish QR in time.......
I want to thank all those who have provided hints and tips and good luck to those who are gonna take their UKCAT soon!
Hi Grad, I think you still have good chance in getting into Unis that don't weigh UKCAT heavily. The following Unis:Does anyone know whether a score of 642.5 is competitive for the 5 yr course? I am obviously only applying for 5 year course, so I would greatly appreciate if anyone can tell me which unis would be within my UKCAT score. I have also been predicted a first so the UKCAT score is a big sucker punch lol.
