UCAT Italy

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is used in the selection process by our Associate Member Italian University, UniCamillus

UCAT Italy Results

The UCAT is marked on the number of correct answers a candidate gives.  There is no negative marking for incorrect answers.  Performance on one question does not influence which other questions are presented.

Cognitive Subtest

Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning questions are worth 1 mark each.

In the Decision Making subtest questions with one correct answer are worth 1 mark and questions with multiple statements are worth 2 marks.  One mark is awarded to partially correct responses on the multiple-statement questions. 

As the number of questions varies between these four subtests it is not possible to make a direct comparison of the raw scores between the cognitive subtests. Raw scores are therefore converted to scale scores that share a common range from 300 to 900.

A total scale score is generated by summing the individual scale scores of Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning.  A total scale score ranges from 1200 to 3600.

Situational Judgement Test

Within the Situational Judgement test, full marks are awarded for a question if the response matches the correct answer and partial marks awarded if the response is close to the correct answer. 

Raw scores for the Situational Judgement subtest are expressed in one of four bands, with band 1 being the highest.  Alongside their band, candidates will be given an interpretation of this performance: 

Band 1

Those in Band 1 demonstrated an excellent level of performance, showing similar judgement in most cases to the panel of experts.

Band 2

Those in Band 2 demonstrated a good, solid level of performance, showing appropriate judgement frequently, with many responses matching model answers.

Band 3

Those in Band 3 demonstrated a modest level of performance, with appropriate judgement shown for some questions and substantial differences from ideal responses for others.

Band 4

The performance of those in Band 4 was low, with judgement tending to differ substantially from ideal responses in many cases.

 As the Situational Judgement test is a measure of non-cognitive attributes, it will be considered by universities in a different manner to the cognitive subtests. Please refer to their websites for more details.
