Comment 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.

UKCAT Registration:
UKCAT registration opens at 9am on 2 May and closes on 19 September 2017 at 5pm.

Booking closes at midday on 2 October 2017.

UKCAT testing takes place between 3 July and 3 October 2017.

Candidates are strongly recommended to register and book their test at their earliest convenience to ensure places are available at a local centre. Each year there are candidates who book a late test and encounter problems when they fall ill or experience other issues preventing them from taking that testing slot. This can be avoided by booking to take the test early. We advise that candidates read the section on Test Day Problems carefully.

Our tests are delivered by Pearson VUE on computer through their worldwide test centre network. All candidates complete a two-step process using the Pearson VUE online registration system.

All candidates must create an online account with Pearson VUE before they can book their test. Candidates need to register for their test personally – this cannot be done by a school/college.

They will need to provide the information requested in this questionnaire which also explains why the data is collected. They may need to ask their parent(s)/carer(s) for assistance in answering the questions.

Our admissions tests are a compulsory entry requirement for our Consortium Universities. They are offered worldwide in the countries listed on the website - URL below. Consortium Universities expect overseas applicants to take their test which could mean travelling to another country.
