Who Should Take the Test

The UKCAT is a compulsory entry requirement for our Consortium Universities.  Candidates are required to sit the test by 5 October 2016 if they are intending to apply for entry in 2017 (or deferred entry in 2018) to a relevant course listed below.  UKCAT results cannot be carried over from one year to the next. 

Candidates should always check the entry requirements for each course before booking a test.  Some universities may have different requirements for overseas or graduate applicants.

There are no general exemptions from the test.  Candidates who believe they may be unable to sit the UKCAT in 2016 should see the Mitigating Circumstances page.

A candidate may only take the test once in any test cycle and any instances of multiple testing in the same year will be treated as an example of unprofessional behaviour.
