The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is used by a wide range of UK, Australian, and New Zealand universities as part of their admissions process for Medicine and Dentistry courses.
The UCAT has sections on Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, and Situational Judgment, all of which are designed to assess the aptitude of a candidate to succeed in studying Medicine or Dentistry, rather than their academic capabilities.
The tests are taken in Pearson Vue centres, with no materials allowed to be brought into the test centres by the candidates.
Tests take place in the summer each year.
The Tutors we represent can help students prepare for the UCAT, focusing on the practicing and improving the reasoning and decision making skills they will need for each of the individual sections, which they will not have covered specifically in their academic subjects. They can also help in improving your applicant’s awareness of the issues in medical and personal ethics that inform the Situational Judgement section of the test.
There are no past papers available for the UCAT, but the Tutors can help students make the most of the specimen questions and practice tests on the UCAT website, providing detailed feedback and support on areas marked for improvement.
