The UCAT Consortium is continuing to monitor the global situation as it relates to UCAT delivery in 2020 (for entry to University in 2021).  Working alongside our business partner Pearson VUE, we will act in accordance with all government mandates and official recommendations to safeguard our candidates around the world.

Candidates will appreciate that there is still uncertainty surrounding when test centres in the UK and internationally will open, and the impact that social distancing measures may have on testing capacity.  We remain committed to delivering the UCAT in 2020 and are working with Pearson VUE to explore a number of test delivery scenarios, with the wellbeing of our candidates at the forefront of our decision making.

Registration for this year's test is not yet open and we anticipate testing to begin later than normal this year.

We continue to liaise closely with our Consortium medical and dental schools and decisions regarding 2020 delivery will be made in consultation with these Universities.

Information and advice on taking the UCAT, including preparation materials are available on our website and we would encourage candidates to start familiarising themselves with our test content ahead of this year's test cycle.

We will update our website with plans for 2020 testing on Monday 1st June.
