UCAT Course

The UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is an admissions exam designed to rank the applicants for medicine to certain UK universities to help admissions tutors separate excellent candidates from one another as part of the admissions test. We here at Oxbridge Applications are specialists in all-things Admissions Test, and offer a range of options to help you prepare for the UCAT, including bespoke UCAT preparation courses, UCAT mock tests, and various free e-resources and guides to help promising applicants showcase the best of their abilities when it comes to sitting the real thing.

Our UCAT preparation course and in-person UCAT course London includes one-to-one admissions test tuition sessions with a test specialist using our own, bespoke mock test papers as supplementary resources. Sessions are arranged according to your schedule and are completely flexible to fit in with your school, work, or other commitments. Our team of UCAT training tutors, all of whom have studied a medicine-related subject at a top UK university themselves, have an intimate understanding of the UCAT and what it takes to prepare well for what is, to many, a daunting admissions test.

Our years of experience has shown that steady preparation for the BMAT through a structured and one-to-one series of tuition is the best way to prepare for the test. Our packages range in number of sessions as well as their format (either online or in person) to give you complete control, making them some of the best UCAT preparation course UK.

What is the UCAT?

The UCAT is a two-hour long, computer-based test that, through five different sections, is made up of 225 questions. The five sections of the test and their respective timings are as follows: verbal reasoning (21 minutes), decision making (31 minutes), quantitative reasoning (25 minutes), abstract reasoning (12 minutes), and situational judgement (26 minutes). The UCAT score is in two parts. The first four sections are each marked with a score between 300 and 900, the sum of which gives an overall score. The other mark comes from the final situational judgement section, for which the test is places in a band between one and four.


What courses require the UCAT?

The UCAT is for applicants to medicine, veterinary, and some dentist courses at 30 different UK universities and an additional 13 in Australia and New Zealand.

How is the UCAT used?

Most top UK Med schools use the UCAT as a standardised format for assessing and benchmarking their applicants. The exam rewards problem solving over any specific medical knowledge, so that students taking different qualifications at school can access the syllabus. Universities use students’ marks in the UCAT to make decisions about which applicants they should invite to interview. The vast majority of applicants to these medical schools have similarly excellent exam grades, making it very difficult to decide between them, and an applicant’s UCAT test score heavily influences this decision.
