Test Day

Please ensure you read the information on Photographic ID before attending your test.

You must arrive at the test centre at least 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete the check-in process.  

Candidates arriving late may not be allowed to take the test and will be charged to rearrange their test.

Before you set off for your test, make a note of the Test Centre’s address and phone number and find it on a map.

You should present to the Test Centre reception BOTH of the following:

  • a printout of your confirmation email from Pearson VUE

  • one piece of approved photographic identification which meets the requirements of the region where you are taking the test

During the check-in process the test centre will take a digital photograph of you for security purposes.  You will also be asked to sign the UKCAT Consortium Professional Examination Rules.  You will sign these to state that you understand them. Please familiarise yourself with these before your test.
