UCAT Applications Close Soon

To get into medicine you have to score well on a University Clinical Admission Test (UCAT)

There is a fee to undertake the UCAT. Concessions close on 10 May.  

Applications close on 17th May.

 

UCAT Applications Close

Late bookings for UCAT

The late booking deadline is 31st May.

To see all dates go HERE. 

There is a bank of tests that students should do to prepare for the test.

UCAT recommends:

you start by viewing the Preparation Advice and Resources before moving onto the Question Banks and Practice Tests and the Test Tools.  

Training organisations that are not associated with UCAT offer additional training. UCAT has this to say about those organisations:

Commercial organisations will be using questions that are not necessarily of the standard you will encounter in the UCAT and this may distort your performance whilst practising. Screen views may be different and commercial organisations are unlikely to include the new question types, which you may encounter in your test. They may also not replicate the UCAT scoring and banding accurately and may give misleading indicators of your anticipated UCAT score.

Good luck to all of you who aim to get into medicine.
