The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test, used by a consortium of UK Universities and non-UK associate member universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programmes.
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 UCAT is a computer-based test delivered in Pearson VUE test centres throughout the UK and worldwide. More information on the UCAT and how to register can be found here
How we use the UCAT
Applicants will be selected for interview on the basis of a weighted score compared to other applicants who apply in the same year, and may be comprised of UCAT score, UCAS tariff of qualifications predicted or achieved or weighted scoring of degree for graduates. Selection after interview may consider all assessment factors: interview score, situational judgement test, UCAS tariff of qualifications predicted or achieved or weighted scoring from degree and UCAT score.
UCAT exemptions/waivers are not granted under any circumstances. If you are unable to take the UCAT for any reason, our advice will be to reapply for the following application cycle.
Candidates MUST be 18 or over by the end of the second week of course enrolment. If applicants are under 18 at the start of the course, they can apply for deferred entry if they will meet the age requirement the following year.
GCSE English Language grade 6

Graduates who offer a degree with at least an upper second class honours or equivalent who have graduated from a university outside the UK, must check their degree equivalency to a UK Honours degree with at least a 2:1 against the Postgraduate requirements stipulated for their region. If equivalent, applicants should then use the degree title checker to check your degree subject and any additional requirements for entry.
