UCAT Consortium

Universities use our tests to select applicants with the most appropriate mental abilities, attitudes and professional behaviours required to be successful in their clinical careers.

Admissions Testing for UK Health Professions

The UCAT Consortium is committed to fairness in selection to medicine and dentistry and to the widening participation in medical and dental training of under-represented social groups.  Through an ongoing programme of research UCAT is seeking to identify the characteristics in applicants which will make them good clinicians and thus to improve the quality of those who enter the professions with the ultimate aim of improving patient care.

UCAT Preparation Advice

Prior to 2019 the UCAT was known as the UKCAT.  Whilst our former name is referenced in this video, the advice given by our previous candidates is still highly relevant to the current test.
