UCAT stands for University Clinical Aptitude Test.
UCAT will be an important criterion for entry into medicine and some dental courses at most Universities across Australia and New Zealand in 2020. UCAT has replaced UMAT for this purpose.
UCAT is similar to UMAT, however, it includes additional constructs which are considered important and desirable for future healthcare professionals. It comprises five sections: verbal reasoning, decision making, quantitative reasoning, abstract reasoning and situational judgement.
UCAT is a computer based test that takes approximately 2 hours, and will be administered by Pearson VUE. Candidates will receive their score immediately after the test. There will be various sittings of the test offered in July 2019, across Australia, New Zealand and internationally.
Further information about UCAT will be released by the UCAT Consortium prior to January 2019. In the meantime, you can find out more about UCAT by visiting the following links:
