hi sohni,

although i havent reached that point where i can do my UW yet, but i think many have mentioned doing the UW to kinda predict where we stand. so i say go with timed blocks rather than subjects. cos once u're directed into one subject, u thought is more streamlined. but we should practice thinking of all subjects at once rather being streamlined.

can anyone agree with me on this?

It doesn't matter much how to do it, but it is important to take notes from the answers (especially those you answered wrong) adding them to first aid to keep them available for revesion later.
