UCAT Test Day

Please ensure you read the information on Photographic ID before attending your test.

You must arrive at the test centre at least 15 minutes before your appointment time to complete the check-in process.  

Candidates arriving late may not be allowed to take the test and will be charged to rearrange their test.  This applies in cases of family emergency, accident, arrest, transport problems and security alert as well as forgetfulness and lateness.

Before you set off for your test, make a note of the Test Centre’s address and phone number and find it on a map.

You should present to the Test Centre reception BOTH of the following:

  • a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email from Pearson VUE

  • one piece of approved photographic identification which meets the requirements of the country where you are testing

During the check-in process the test centre will check your ID and take a digital photograph of you for security purposes.  You will also be asked to read the UCAT Consortium Examination Rules and sign to confirm you understand them.  Please familiarise yourself with these before your test.
