The Situational Judgement Test for Admission to Clinical Education (SJTace) is an admissions test used for entry to the Scottish Graduate Entry Medical Programme (ScotGEM).

Practice Tests and Resources

You should prepare for the SJTace by using the relevant SJT resources available in the practice materials.  SJTace candidates should disregard parts of the preparation materials not related to the SJT.


Our three, fully timed practice tests, which mimic closely the testing experience, are an essential part of your preparation.  These are intended to be viewed on desktop rather than mobile devices, so as to accurately reflect the live test experience. Please note that when you take the live test your correct and incorrect answers will not be reported.


10 question banks containing 400 official questions from all five subtests. Use these to familiarise yourself with the type of questions you will see in your test. Answer rationales are also provided for all questions.  These are intended to be viewed on desktop rather than mobile devices, so as to accurately reflect the live test experience.


An interactive tutorial which includes general advice on how to approach the test as well as strategies on how to approach and answer questions in the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement subtests.


A tutorial which illustrates all the functions used in our computer-based tests including how to answer and review questions.


Download the UCAT Official mobile app for Apple and Android users. This cannot replicate all question types from the live test but is a useful preparation tool to complement our other resources.  You can practise questions on the go and it's great for when you only have a few moments to squeeze in some UCAT preparation.


The official UCAT YouTube channel has a number of videos to support preparation. High-scoring, former UCAT candidates share advice on their preparations for the test, plus a selection of University Admissions Tutors share their thoughts on the use of the test. There are also videos showing what to expect in a Pearson VUE test centre and a playlist of videos from our member universities.


The 2019 official guide contains definitive information regarding the test including over 130 practice items. Click the icon for an interactive version online or download a PDF.

Commercial Preparation Materials

Candidates should be aware that whilst there are many commercial companies publishing books and offering coaching for our tests, the UCAT Consortium does not work with any of these companies or endorse the use of their materials. Taking advantage of these opportunities can cost candidates a great deal of money and we would advise you to be sceptical about claims they can help you do well in the test by coaching.

Commercial organisations will be using questions that are not necessarily of the standard you will encounter in the UCAT and this may distort your performance whilst practising. Screen views may be different and commercial organisations are unlikely to include the new question types which you may encounter in your test. They may also not replicate the UCAT scoring and banding accurately and may give misleading indicators of your anticipated UCAT score.

There is also lots of advice available for free on the web regarding approaches to the test and many sources of free practice questions. However, unless the material has been published very recently it is unlikely to include the correct test content, test questions, etc.

We therefore strongly advise candidates to use the official Practice Tests and Question Banks on our website, and to be cautious about using resources from any commercial providers as these are not affiliated with UCAT in any way.
