About the SJT for Admission to Clinical Education (SJTace)

The Situational Judgement Test for Admission to Clinical Education (SJTace) is an admissions test used for entry to the Scottish Graduate Entry Medical Programme (ScotGEM).   

The SJTace is designed to help select applicants with the most appropriate professional behaviours required for new doctors to be successful in their clinical careers.  It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as the UCAS application, academic qualifications and the GAMSAT.

The SJTace has identical content to the SJT subtest offered within the UKCAT.  Therefore candidates who already intend to sit the 2017 UKCAT do not need to sit the SJTace.  Their UKCAT result (which includes an SJT banding) will be communicated to all their university choices.

Candidates not taking the UKCAT are required to sit the SJTace by 3 October 2017 if they are intending to apply for ScotGEM entry in 2018 (or deferred entry in 2019).  SJTace results cannot be carried over from one year to the next. 

There are no general exemptions from the test.  Candidates who believe they may be unable to sit the SJTace in 2017 should see the information on Mitigating Circumstances.

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.

The following universities currently require the SJTace for their ScotGEM programme (A101): University of Dundee and University of St Andrews.
