2013 registration is now closed. The website will be updated with details of the forthcoming 2014 test programme in due course.
You can register for the 2013 test between 1 May 2013 and 20 September 2013. Candidates wishing to apply in 2013 for entry to the participating universities in 2014 or deferred entry in 2015, are required to take the UKCAT before the 4 October 2013 deadline.
You are strongly recommended to register and sit the UKCAT at your earliest convenience to ensure places are available at a local centre. Each year there are candidates who book a late test and encounter real problems when they fall ill or experience other problems preventing them from taking that testing slot. This can be avoided by booking to take your test early. We advise that you read the section on extenuating circumstances carefully.
You register for the test by following the 'sign in' link at the top of this page. This takes you to the Pearson VUE website. You will be asked to create an online account. Once you have gone through the steps required to create your web account you will be sent an email containing you password which will allow you to book your test. This email should arrive quickly and at the very latest within one working day. If it has not arrived (and is not in your junk/spam folders) please contact Customer Services.
You need to register for the test personally – this cannot be done by your school/college.
Usernames and Passwords
If you have forgotten your username or password there are options to retrieve these from the sign in page. if you continue to have problems signing in then you need to contact Customer Services.
UKCAT seeks to minimise bias in the test due to factors such as age, sex, ethnicity, or socio-economic background. In order to do this, we ask you for information about your nationality, ethnicity, parents' occupation and experience of healthcare settings. For clarity, this data is not passed to any University. By parent(s)/carer(s), we mean the people who have fulfilled the role of parents in the household in which you grew up, who may or may not be your biological parents. More information about how we use your data can be found here.
Please print and answer the attached questionnaire with the assistance of your parent(s)/carer(s). You can then use the questionnaire to help answer the questions during registration.
