UCAT Test Information

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.

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.
55 300 – 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.

Verbal Reasoning Strategies

You are unlikely to be familiar with the content of the text shown to you. Do not draw on existing knowledge as this will not be relevant.

Think about how you will plan your time in this section. You need to allocate time to read each passage thoroughly. 

This section requires real concentration – it is at the beginning of the test and you should be ready for this. Focus from the start.

Quantitative Reasoning Strategies

Timing is very important in this section – pace yourself during the test. Check how you are doing halfway through and adjust your speed accordingly.  

Read the questions carefully – individual words and units may be crucial in answering the question correctly.

In the first place try to understand the scenario presented – this will help you focus quickly on the questions 

Use the laminated booklet and pen provided to assist with your calculations.

Review where there might be gaps in your maths. You may need to work out percentages, averages, ratios and fractions – remind yourself how to do some of these calculations if they are causing you problems.

If you are finding a question difficult, eliminate the more obvious incorrect answers.

Practice your mental arithmetic to speed up your answering.


A simple on-screen calculator is available for use in the Quantitative Reasoning sub test.  The calculator has been included within the timed practice tests. We strongly advise you to use the calculator when taking the practice tests in order to familiarise yourself with the functionality. 

Abstract Reasoning Strategies

Timing is again important in this section.  In 2014 approximately 17% of candidates failed to answer every question. 

Remember to leave time to review set A and set B at the beginning of each set of questions. Once you have identified what links each set you are half way there.

Consider issues around size and shape of objects; number of objects; sides of objects; shading and colour; symmetry, number of angles, position and direction… this sounds complicated but as you look at these shapes you will start to grasp what you need to focus on.

What links shapes in set A and those in set B will often be linked in some way – remembering this may help you ignore distracting information. 

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