Sitting the UCAT

In 2022 we intend to deliver the UCAT in Pearson VUE test centres throughout the UK and internationally.  Our two-hour computer-based test is designed to be delivered in a test centre environment, and we believe this offers the best and most secure experience for our candidates.

The UCAT Consortium and our delivery partner, Pearson VUE are committed to protecting the safety of all candidates sitting the test.  All Pearson VUE company-owned test centres are following government and local guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Candidates are asked to comply with the latest Pearson VUE health and safety guidelines.

All candidates are expected to familiarise themselves with this important information so they know what to expect on their test day and what to do if there is a problem before or during their test. 

We strongly recommend you check the ID you are intending to present well in advance of your test day to ensure it meets our Photo ID Policy.  Doing so will allow sufficient time to obtain acceptable ID if necessary.
