About the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT)
The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is an admissions test used by a consortium of UK Universities for their medical and dental degree programmes.
The UKCAT does not contain any curriculum or science content. It helps Universities to select applicants with the most appropriate mental abilities, attitudes and professional behaviours required for new doctors and dentists to be successful in their clinical careers. It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as the UCAS application and academic qualifications.
It is also your opportunity to stand out from other applicants and demonstrate your aptitude for a demanding programme of study.
The UKCAT is a computer-based test delivered in Pearson VUE test centres throughout the UK and internationally.
