UKCAT Test

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

UKCAT Universities

The UKCAT is a compulsory entry requirement for our UK Consortium Universities and our non-UK Associate Member Universities.  You are required to sit the test by 2 October 2018 if you are intending to apply for entry in 2019 (or deferred entry in 2020) to a relevant course listed below.  UKCAT results cannot be carried over from one year to the next. 

You should always check the specific entry requirements for each course before booking a test.  Some universities may have different requirements for overseas or graduate applicants.

There are no general exemptions from the test.  Candidates who believe they may be unable to sit the UKCAT in 2018 should see the information on Mitigating Circumstances.

You may only take the test once in any test cycle and any instances of multiple testing in the same year will be treated as an example of unprofessional behaviour
