What is UKCAT?

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is an aptitude test used by a consortium of UK medical and dental schools in the UK as an integral part of their selection process. This consortium of schools include top universities like King’s College London, University of Warwick and University of St. Andrew’s. 

Candidates can take UKCAT ONCE ONLY in the admission cycle. There are several test dates available, spanning from July to Oct. The test takes 120 minutes, and consists of five major parts: Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement. The previous four parts are scored in points, while the last part is graded in bands, from Band 1 (excellent level of performance) to Band 4.
