UKCAT Humanitas

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (Humanitas) is used in the selection process by Humanitas University, Milan.

Photographic ID

You must bring photographic identification from our approved list.  If you fail to do so you will not be allowed to test and you will have to book and pay for a new test slot on another day.  This may be particularly problematic towards the end of testing when convenient test slots may not be available.  Last year 270 candidates arrived for testing with incorrect ID and were turned away.  Test centre staff have no discretion to waive or vary the identification rules.

The name and date of birth on your identity document must exactly match the name and date of birth you provided when you registered for the UKCAT.  If it does not you must contact Pearson VUE Customer Services at least 5 working days before your test appointment in order that this can be addressed. 

You must present one piece of photographic identification from the table below which meets the requirements of the region where you are taking the test:

Alternative Form of Identification (UK Only)

If you are taking the test in the UK and you do not have and cannot obtain one of the permitted forms of identification above, there is a fall-back solution.  Please ask your school or college to attach your photograph to its headed notepaper and include the following text: 

"This document is to confirm the identity of our student [insert your name], date of birth [insert your date of birth], whose signature appears below, endorsed with the official stamp of the school [that covers part of the photograph]." 

Sample ID

The form must be signed by a head teacher or a senior member of staff and bear the school stamp (which covers part of the photograph).  You must also sign this document.  Please ensure that the photograph used is clear and you can be easily identified from it. 


Important Information

If you are refused admission you will be recorded as a ‘no-show’ and will forfeit your appointment and test fee. If you are a ‘no show’ you will need to book another test and pay again.  Please refer to the information on Rescheduling and Cancelling for further details.  This applies in cases of family illness, family emergency, accident, arrest, transport problems and security alert as well as forgetfulness.  It also applies to those who arrive with inadequate or invalid identification.
