The test

The test

  • The UKCAT is designed to be a test of aptitude rather than strictly academic achievement, as evidenced by GCSEs and A Levels

  • The test assesses a wide range of mental abilities and behavioural attributes identified by university Medical and Dental Schools as important.

  • For candidates sitting the examination in summer 2006, the UKCAT will consist of four subtests:


Ukcat test

UKCAT test

  • Verbal reasoning– assesses candidates’ ability to think logically about written information and to arrive at a reasoned conclusion

  • Quantitative reasoning– assesses candidates’ ability to solve numerical problems

  • Abstract reasoning– assesses candidates’ ability to infer relationships from information by convergent and divergent thinking

  • Decision analysis– assesses candidates’ ability to deal with various forms of information, to infer relationships, to make informed judgements, and to decide on an appropriate response, in situations of complexity and ambiguity.

UKCAT

  • Including ‘warm-up’ time (which is the time allocated to reading the instructions), the test will be delivered in less than two hours.  Each of the sub-tests will be in a multiple-choice format and will be separately timed.

  • There will be no curriculum content as the test will seek to probe innate skills.  There will be a more extensive non-cognitive element from 2007 onwards.
