The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test used by a consortium of UK Universities for their medical and dental degree programes.

The UCAT helps universities to select applicants with the most appropriate mental abilities, attitudes and professional behaviors 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 programe of study.

The UCAT is a computer-based test.  In 2020 all candidates will have the choice to sit the test either at home using Pearson VUE’s online proctoring service (OnVUE) or (as in the past) at a Pearson VUE Test Centre.  There is no difference in content between a test sat at home (we call this UCAT Online) and one taken in a test centre.    


UCAT Scoring and Marking :

The UCAT is marked on the number of correct answers you give.  There is no negative marking for incorrect answers.  Your performance on one question does not influence which other questions are presented.

As the number of questions varies between the four cognitive subtests it is not possible to make a direct comparison of the raw marks between these subtests. Raw marks are therefore converted to scale scores that share a common range from 300 to 900.

A total scale score is generated by summing the individual scale scores of Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning.  In 2019 a total scale score ranges from 1200 to 3600.

Cognitive Subtests Questions Scale Score Range   Marking
Verbal Reasoning
Assesses the ability to critically evaluate information presented in a written form.
44 300 – 900 Questions are worth 1 mark each.
Decision Making
Assesses the ability to make sound decisions and judgements using complex information.
29 300 – 900 Questions with one correct answer are worth 1 mark.

Questions with multiple statements are worth 2 marks.  One mark is awarded to partially correct responses on the multiple-statement questions.

Quantitative Reasoning
Assesses the ability to critically evaluate information presented in a numerical form.
36 300 – 900 Questions are worth 1 mark each.
Abstract Reasoning
Assesses the use of convergent and divergent thinking to infer relationships from information.
50 300 – 900 Questions are worth 1 mark each.
Total Scale Score Range 1200 – 3600

Situational Judgement Test

Within the Situational Judgement test, full marks are awarded for a question if your response matches the correct answer and partial marks awarded if your response is close to the correct answer.

Raw scores for the Situational Judgement subtest are expressed in one of four bands, with band 1 being the highest.  Alongside your band, you will be given an interpretation of your performance:

Band 1 Those in Band 1 demonstrated an excellent level of performance, showing similar judgement in most cases to the panel of experts.
Band 2 Those in Band 2 demonstrated a good, solid level of performance, showing appropriate judgement frequently, with many responses matching model answers.
Band 3 Those in Band 3 demonstrated a modest level of performance, with appropriate judgement shown for some questions and substantial differences from ideal responses for others.
Band 4 The performance of those in Band 4 was low, with judgement tending to differ substantially from ideal responses in many cases.

As the Situational Judgement test is a measure of non-cognitive attributes, it will be considered by universities in a different manner to the cognitive subtests. Please refer to their websites for more details.
