It’s all getting a bit real

I’ve just got home from a UKCAT course and everything is creeping up on me a bit!

My exam is in under six weeks now, and that’s pretty terrifying, but what’s even more terrifying is that I’ve changed tack a bit; instead of doing three UKCAT grad courses and one undergrad course, a friend has convinced me to do the GAMSAT as well :O; I’ll be applying to two UKCAT and two GAMSAT courses. As someone who doesn’t have a very sciencey background it will require a lot of work, but my eyes have been opened to how many more opportunities you have with the GAMSAT.

So, the new list is Warwick, Newcastle, Nottingham, and Swansea. Not applying to the KCL grad course seems like a sensible idea because it’s so ridiculously competitive, so so so competitive. And not applying for a five year course makes more sense as well; who has £36k lying around?!

Of course only time will tell, but I found that UKCAT course really useful today. I now have a systematic approach and the tools to get a high score. How the test goes on the day is a very different matter.
