UKCAT expects candidates to meet minimum standards of acceptable behaviour during testing and during any interactions with UKCAT and Pearson Vue staff. Please familiarise yourself with the UKCAT Professional Examination Rules before your test.
Where candidates fall short of these minimum standards, such incidents will be thoroughly investigated. Where such allegations of misconduct are upheld, UKCAT reserves the right to take actions which may include:
- withdrawal of all test results;
- disqualification from sitting the test for a period in the future;
- the sharing of the outcomes of the investigation with legitimate third parties (which may include UCAS and Consortium Universities).
Examples of misconduct include:
- Testing more than once in any test cycle;
- breach of security arrangements;
- failure to follow invigilator or other staff instructions;
- creating a disturbance;
- using prohibited aids (e.g. notes, note paper, calculators, mobile phone, audio/recording device etc.);
- copying another candidate’s work;
- using the test questions, their content or information about them for purposes other than sitting the UKCAT;
- giving of false or misleading information during the registration, booking and payment processes;
- giving of false or misleading information relating to test results during admissions processes.
