Contact the UCAT Office

Please ensure you direct your enquiry in the correct way, otherwise there may be a delay in dealing with your request.

The UCAT Office does not have access to Pearson VUE systems and cannot help with:

  • ID queries
  • Name changes
  • Issues relating to booking, cancelling or rescheduling a test
  • Registration or UCAT account problems

You must contact Pearson VUE Customer Services for assistance on these matters.

Test Incidents
