What will it be like to sit UCAT?


UCAT may seem like a daunting prospect, not least because most students will not be familiar with sitting a computer-based test. In this blog, we’ll cover what to expect on the day of UCAT.

What to bring

You will need to bring a printout of your confirmation email from Pearson VUE, as well as photographic identification (such as a passport or driver’s license).

You are not allowed to have bags, coats, paper, books, pens, watches, wallets, keys, mobile phones, food or drinks with you when you are sitting UCAT. You will be able to store these personal belongings in a locker in the test venue.

Checking in

The test centre will need to confirm your identity. This will normally require a supervisor to take a photograph of you. You will also need to sign the examination rules which apply to UCAT to confirm that you have read and understood them.

Testing environment

You will be allocated to a desk space which will contain a computer and keyboard. You will also be given a noteboard and marker pen to make notes during the test. If you need another noteboard during UCAT (which is often the case), you can request one from a supervisor.

It is possible that other candidates will be starting and finishing their tests at a different time to you. There may therefore be people coming and going while you are sitting UCAT. If you feel that this will disturb you, you can request earphones or headphones.


There are no scheduled breaks during UCAT. Once the test has commenced, you cannot pause it. If you need to use the bathroom, you should raise your hand and a supervisor will direct you. Note that the UCAT will continue running during this time.

The best way to familiarise yourself with the test is to complete full length exams under simulated conditions. You can access these from the MedEntry UCAT Preparation course.
