I Learned Today That Each Section (theres 4) Is Out Of 900 And The Average Result Is 500-700 Per Section. I Sat My Test Today And Was Really Disappointed, I Dont Think I Will Be Impressing Anybody!! My Average Is 580 So Im An Overall Average Gal According To Ukcat But Average Is Not Very Impressive Is It!!?? Is There Any Point In Applying To Uni?! Totally Bummed! How Did Everyone Else Do??

other people on here must be very brainy as one person said they got 900 for one section!!! i only completed two sections! i ran outta time for the others! bugger! well, i tried my best and tried to be as quick as possible. i just have to hope everyone applying to newcastle fluffed their exams so i dont look quite as average!!! hehe. oh dear i need a stiff drink.

ive been wetting myself for weeks over this i so wanted to ace it. i did the practise questions and did really well with them, except the ruddy shapes ones. eh well.

just gonna have to write a super cool excellent personal statement and hope i win their hearts that way!

I did the test on the 8th and my results were as follows:

Verbal Reasoning: 680
Quantitative Reasoning: 680
Abstract Reasoning: 710
Decision Analysis: 660

So pretty average if the 500-700 thing is accurate.

What i dont understand is how UKCAT will pass my results onto UCAS when i didnt fill in the UCAS ID Number part when registering to take the test. Anyone know??

You apparently don;t need to write them on. The UKCAT consortium will send them to your relevant unis. So, u don;t have to worry about it, it should be dun for you.

Yeah but i dont see how they know who "my relevant unis" are if i didnt fill in the part of the application that asks for you UCAS ID. I guess they must just match my other details e.g. name d.o.b etc??

no they printed it off for me so when i left the exam i collected it at the desk. apparently the only started doing this from september 8th. dunno why they didnt jus do this to begin with instead of keeping everyone waiting. i originally had mine booked for 22nd aug but i had to rearrange it, im glad i did! the guy there said that everyone elses result will follow in the next couple of weeks as someone before me was asking.

so good luck everyone!!

how soon did you get your results? i know people (including myself) who have waited longer than a month and still have no results! so they email you?

I did the test yesterday. If anyone wants to know my score, they are:
530, 870, 700, 500
I really hope that the unis will not take the UKCAT score really seriously. Different unis will look at the score in different ways. Does anyone have any idea how they will look at the scores? This would make a big difference to my application. Will they take the average, or look at individual sections? Obviously this is the first year they use the UKCAT, so no one really knows how they will use the score. But what do you think?

just tried the practice test, i start in september so don't need it but thought it would be interesting to try it.

It's quite difficult, first glances reminded me of the bmat test for oxbridge students.

are there no more practice questions, cos if its just those 16 or so q's on the website that are available then i think it's unfair.

Yeah I swear everyone's getting quite high marks on quantitative... amazing when everyone's complaining about it! Hopefully the computer will be nice for mine :)

i went to medsim this year and there was a sort of short lecture thing abbout ukcat. the guy told us that unis will use it if they have 2 very similar applicants that they can't decide between. they'll look at ukcat and whoever did better will go through. he made it sound as though it wasn't all that important and it's one of the last things universities look at.

Sheffield said the same thing at open day. They basically said they won't put too much thought into it unless it's a decision between two very similar people, then it may be a deciding factor.
