University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT)
What is the UCAT?
The University Clinical Aptitude Test is a computer-based entrance test accepted by the universities in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand for entry into medical and dental degree programs. This test is designed to assess critical reasoning, verbal and numerical skills of the students.
UCAT is divided into five separately timed objective type sections, i.e., verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, abstract reasoning, decision making, and situational judgement. Each individual section of the UCAT is scored from 300 to 900. Most people taking the UCAT, score in the range of 500 – 700. Therefore, a score of 700 or higher is taken as highly competitive. This score will be valid for the application year, and the test cannot be taken more than once during the same year.
