Advocates of the Situational Judgement Test (one of the subtests of UCAT) claim that it is a very different test to other medical entry aptitude tests. However, the Situational Judgement Test is, in essence, assessing the emotional intelligence of candidates in the context of study and practice of medicine and other health care professions.
The Situational Judgement Test is merely a format or style of question. Candidates are presented with a scenario, and are asked to judge the appropriateness or importance of certain actions. The actual content, and what the questions are assessing, vary significantly.
This is comparable to the difference between a Multiple Mini Interview and panel interview – while the format is different, both are assessing the communication skills and suitability of a candidate for medicine.
MMIs are very expensive for universities to administer. They like SJT because its basically computerised MMI and it costs the unis nothing, since you pay for the UCAT!
Claiming that the Situational Judgement Test is a very different test is misleading.
