UCAT Exam Structure
The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT), previously the UKCAT, is the most widely accepted medical school entrance exam across universities not only in the UK, but as of recently, abroad, too. To reflect the fact that this is now an internationally accepted entrance exam in the selection process for medicine, the exam’s name was changed from the UKCAT to UCAT as of this year. The actual exam has not changed at all, however, so if you are familiar with or may have even sat the UKCAT before, rest assured, as the format and content of the exam remain identical.
For those of you who are currently applying to or thinking of applying to medicine, chances are that you might have to sit the UCAT, depending on the universities you are interested in applying for and as such, a good knowledge of the structure and content of the exam will be of great value for the start of a successful preparation. Continue reading below for a full breakdown of the UCAT exam and what will be expected of you when you sit it.
