Getting to Know the UKCAT

Part of the UKCAT For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

The United Kingdom Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is a psychometric test used by universities to assess the ability of their applicants. The universities want to know that you can

  • Interpret written material

  • Cope with basic maths

  • Spot patterns quickly

  • Use complex information to make challenging decisions.

These are all skills that doctors and dentists have to put into practice every day of their working lives. The UKCAT doesn’t expect you to be able to do all those things already, but it does try to check that you’ll have the ability to learn how to do them when the time comes.
