Unprofessional Behaviour

We expect our candidates to meet minimum standards of acceptable behaviour during testing and during any interactions with the UCAT Consortium, UCAT Office and Pearson VUE staff.  Please familiarise yourself with the relevant UCAT Consortium Exam Rules before your test.

Where candidates fall short of these minimum standards, such incidents will be thoroughly investigated.  Where such allegations of misconduct are upheld, we reserve the right to take actions which may include: 

  • cancellation of a booking to sit the UCAT without a refund;
  • withdrawal of all test results;
  • disqualification from sitting the test for a period in the future;
  • the sharing of the outcomes of the investigation with legitimate third parties (which may include UCAS and Consortium universities).

Examples of misconduct include, but are not limited to the following: 

  • testing more than once in any test cycle;
  • sitting both the UCAT and UCAT ANZ in the same year;
  • sitting the test if you have an affiliation with a UCAT coaching business, for example in your capacity as a tutor, or as an item developer, or having some financial interest in a UCAT coaching business;
