UKCAT Test

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test is used in the selection process by the majority of UK University Medical and Dental Schools.

UKCAT Results

When you leave the test centre you will be given a copy of your UKCAT Score Report.  

Additional copies of your UKCAT score report are available for a fee of £25 GBP. You can order one by contacting Pearson VUE Customer Services.

Results are valid for the 2018 UCAS Admissions cycle (for entry into medical or dental school in 2019 or deferred entry to 2020). 
 

Your UCAS Personal ID

Please ensure you have logged into your Pearson VUE account and told us your UCAS PID by Friday 19 October 2018.  

The PID is the 10 digit number you will get when you register with UCAS ‘Apply’.  It can be found at the top of your UCAS ‘Welcome email’.  It is the PID you use to login to ‘Track’.  Do not enter any spaces or dashes.

Important information for re-applicants or graduate applicants

If you have applied through UCAS in any previous application cycle, the PID we need is the original number you were given when you made your first application.  If you are a re-applicant or graduate applicant the PID associated with your 2019 application up to the time of submission will be a temporary one.  Once the application is submitted UCAS will revert you back to your original PID.  Please ensure you give us the correct PID shown at the top of the ‘Welcome email’ which UCAS will send you to confirm receipt of your application.  If you give us the temporary PID it may delay delivery of your results.


Delivering UKCAT Results to Universities

After the UCAS application deadline has passed (15 October 2018), we liaise with UCAS and obtain from them information regarding the Consortium Universities you have applied to.  We then communicate your test result directly to your chosen Universities usually during the first week of November. You do not need to pass your test result to your Universities yourself. 

For clarity, we do not and cannot pass your mark onto any Universities outside the Consortium. If you choose to give the universities your scores, please remember that they would not know how to judge a UKCAT result since they would not have the UKCAT results of other candidates with which to compare it. 

You will have your test result before the UCAS deadline so please ensure you use this to help inform your UCAS choices, otherwise you might be wasting an application.  You can find information on how universities use the UKCAT here.
