    Section 2 percentiles fluctuating on MedEntry - what does this mean?

    I've done 9 practice exams on MedEntry and my percentiles for section two are ranging from 15 to 91. However, lately my section two percentiles have been dropping, the last four exams I got 24, 38, 24 and 15. What does this mean for the actual UMAT? Am I doomed or is this something common and then I'll do better on the actual day? My percentiles overall average around 85-95.

    Overall percentile wise you are set. Ive been getting similar overall percentiles to u and from what ive read around it should be alright.
    My s2 ranges wildly too, from 37 to 91. Ive also read up on this and ppl who sat umat in previous years say that s2 really all comes down to how u feel on the day, which makes complete sense. Jst dont stress mate and good luck!

    Edit: NB: I havent sat the umat before so this isnt from my persoanl experience

    MedEntry is a waste of money
    Especially for section 2
    Just ace section 1 and 3 and go to unsw.

    Does UNSW not weigh section 2?

    Depends which site you're using to get that mark. On medentry exam 1 I got 82/134 which was 79 percentile which scales up since medentry is harder, but depends which paper you did.

    People usually say add 5-15% to your medentry percentile, what percentile was 85/134?
