UCAT 2024 Test Dates

These are the key dates and deadline for the 2024 test cycle. We do not make exceptions to our deadlines.

It is your responsibility to book and sit your test within the testing window.

You are strongly recommended to book a test date early in the testing window.

If you choose to book a late test date and then encounter illness or other issues which prevent you from attending your test appointment you may not be able to rebook within the testing window.

The UCAT Essentials page will guide you through all the important steps in completing your UCAT journey.
