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).

SJTace Registration

 SJTace Spring registration opens on 19 January and closes on 3 April 2018 at 5pm. 

Booking closes at midday on 12 April 2018.

SJTace Spring testing takes place between 4 - 13 April 2018.


Candidates are strongly recommended to register and book their test at their earliest convenience to ensure places are available at a local centre.  Each year there are candidates who book a late test and encounter problems when they fall ill or experience other issues preventing them from taking that testing slot. This can be avoided by booking to take the test early.  We advise that candidates read the section on Test Day Problems carefully.

Our tests are delivered by Pearson VUE on computer through their worldwide test centre network.  All candidates complete a two-step process using the Pearson VUE online registration system.

Step 1: Online Account Registration

All candidates must create an online account with Pearson VUE before they can book their test.  Candidates need to register for their test personally – this cannot be done by a school/college.

When the registration process is complete candidates will be sent an email containing a password which will allow them to book their test.  Candidates can log-in to their Pearson VUE account using the link at the top of this page.

Step 2: Booking a Test

All candidates should book a standard test unless they are eligible for extra time in public exams.  Please see the section on Access Arrangements for more information.  It is the candidate's responsibility to book the correct test.

If a convenient test location and date cannot be found please contact Pearson VUE Customer Services who may be able to assist. Please note that availability of convenient dates and times may be limited in the last weeks of testing.  The UKCAT booking system may only allow some test slots to be allocated 90 days in advance. 

If you need to change your appointment please see our information on rescheduling, cancelling and refunds.
