What is the UCAT test?
The UCAT is a computer-based admissions test, used by a consortium of UK universities and non-UK associate member universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programmes.
The UCAT tests the following skills:
- Verbal Reasoning
- Decision Making
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Abstract Reasoning
- Situational Judgement
These skills are tested through 5 subtests.
You will be presented with 11 passages of text, each associated with 4 questions. You have 21 minutes to answer the 44 questions in this subtest.
Some questions assess critical reasoning skills, requiring candidates to make inferences and draw conclusions from information. You will need to read the passage of the text carefully. You will then be presented with a question or incomplete statement and four response options. You are required to pick the best or most suitable response. You will only be able to select one response.
For other questions, your task is to read each passage of text carefully and then decide whether the statement provided follows logically.
There are three answer options you can choose from:
- True: On the basis of the information in the passage, the statement is true.
- False: On the basis of the information in the passage, the statement is false.
- Can’t Tell: You cannot tell from the information in the passage whether the statement is true or false.
You will be presented with 29 questions that may refer to text, charts, tables, graphs, or diagrams. Additional information may be presented within the question itself. You will have 31 minutes to answer the questions in this subtest.
The Decision-Making subtest requires the student to use logic and reasoning to solve textual and visual data-related questions.
The Decision-Making subtest includes the following types of questions:
- Multiple choice questions: Four answer choices are provided to the student out of which only one will be correct.
- Yes/No Statements: The student has to select ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ for each answer.
You will be presented with 36 questions associated with tables, charts, and/or graphs. You will have 25 minutes to answer the questions in this subtest.
The Quantitative Reasoning subtest is used to assess the student’s ability to evaluate various scenarios using his/her numeracy skills and answer multiple-choice questions.
The Quantitative Reasoning subtest includes the following type of questions:
Multiple choice questions: The student will be faced with scenarios with data that could be in various forms, including tables, graphs, and two-three dimensional shapes. Five answer choices will be presented and the student has to select the correct answer choice.
You will be presented with 50 questions associated with sets of shapes. You will have 12 minutes to answer the questions in this subtest.
Abstract Reasoning subtest tests the student’s ability to evaluate and generate hypotheses and assess critical thinking skills. The student will be presented with shape-based patterns and sequences to assess his/her spatial awareness and reasoning.
Abstract Reasoning subtest includes the following types of questions:
- Type one: two ‘sets’ of shapes (Set A and Set B), followed by five ‘test shapes’. You must decide if the ‘test shapes’ fit Set A, Set B, or neither set.
- Type two: a series of shapes that alternate from one box to the next. You need to state which of the four shapes would follow in the sequence.
- Type three: a ‘statement’ of two sets of shapes, where one has been changed to create a new set. You need to apply the same change to a set of test shapes and then choose which of the four options follows.
- Type four: like type one, but you’ll be presented with four ‘test shapes’ simultaneously and will need to decide which one of the four belongs to Set A or B
You will be presented with 66 questions associated with a series of scenarios (each scenario may have up to 6 questions associated with it). You will have 26 minutes to answer all questions within the subtest.
The Situational Judgement subtest is designed to test the student’s capacity to understand real-life situations, find the critical factors and behave appropriately when dealing with them.
The Situational Judgement subtest is made up of multiple-choice and ranking-style questions. These can be broken into the following types of questions:
- Appropriateness: After each scenario, the student will be presented with an action. It needs to be rated according to how appropriate it is in the context of the scenario.
- Importance: The student will get a number of actions after each scenario and he/she has to rate how important they are within the context of the scenario.
How is the UCAT scored?
Your raw UCAT score in each of the first four subtests (VR, DM, QR, AR) is converted to a scaled score between 300 and 900 using UCAT conversion to amount to a total scaled score in the range of 1200 to 3600.
The final subtest (SJ) results in a band score ranging from Band 1 to Band 4, Band 1 being the highest.
How long is the UCAT?
The standard UCAT test is close to 2 hours long.
Students can apply for Access Arrangements to sit an extended version of the test if they have a documented medical condition or disability.
What is the UCAT exam fee?
The UCAT exam fee is GBP120.

Which Universities require the test?
You should always check the entry requirements for each course before booking a test. Some universities may have different requirements for
overseas or graduate applicants. The UKCAT website has the most up-to-date list.
The UCAT is an entrance test for students seeking admission to undergraduate programs in medicine and dentistry abroad, especially in the UK. Several non-UK associate member universities across Australia and New Zealand also use the UCAT as an admissions test.
The UCAT stands for University Clinical Aptitude Test.
The UCAT is wholly developed and administered by Pearson, a British multinational publishing company headquartered in London, England.
- The UCAT was developed with the goal to assess qualities considered desirable in the health professions, including problem-solving, empathy, and abstract reasoning skills.
- Preparing for the UCAT itself is a rewarding experience for the student since it prepares the student for further education in medicine and dentistry and also equips the student with the skills necessary to face the challenges associated with the medical profession.
- The UCAT helps the student get early feedback on his/her readiness in areas crucial for a career in medicine and dentistry.
- The UCAT scores are used as an admissions requirement for a consortium of UK universities and non-UK associate member universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programmes.
A UCAT score is valid for one year.
The student must have completed or must be in the final year of his/her higher secondary education or higher for taking the exam i.e., must have completed 10+2 years of school education or an undergraduate degree. It is recommended that the student takes the UCAT before September of the present year to be ready to pursue undergraduate courses in medicine the next year.
The student will get his/her UCAT test results immediately after finishing the test. The results will be handed to the student as he/she leaves the test centre. The UCAT score will also be available online via the student’s Pearson VUE account within 24 hours of taking the test.
Yes. A student is allowed to use a very basic onscreen calculator on the DM (Decision Making) and QR (Quantitative Reasoning) subtests of the UCAT to answer questions.
It has to be noted that the onscreen calculator provided is very basic and different from most other calculators the student may have used in school. Hence, the student is advised to get familiar with the UCAT onscreen calculator at least a month before taking the UCAT.
You may click on https://www.ucattools.com/ucat-calculator/ to understand what the UCAT calculator looks like.
However, we recommend taking the official mock UCAT tests available for free on the official UCAT website designed and maintained by Pearson Vue, to get to experience the UCAT calculator first-hand.
The same can be found at https://www.ucat.ac.uk/prepare/practice-tests/
You can access the mock tests by clicking on the following link: https://www.ucat.ac.uk/prepare/practice-tests/
Students must book and sit for the test in the test window usually starting from the 2nd week of July till the end of September. More details can be found at: https://www.ucat.ac.uk/about-ucat/ucat-test-cycle/
