Register UCAT. You can register now and create your own Pearson Vue account at https://wsr.pearsonvue.com/testtaker/signin/SignInPage/UKCAT. This year, 2021, there will not be the onscreen scratch pad available.
We suggest that you start about 4 to 6 weeks before the date of your test. The revision should be focused on firstly getting to know all about the UCAT, the question types and techniques to answer the questions. Aim for 2 hours of good intensive practice per day as we are aware that you have lots of other schoolwork to do as well. As you progress through the material, aim to prioritise the areas that you are not scoring well in and aim to spend more time on these.
For most medical colleges offering a 5-year programme, a cut off score of 680/690 is generally enough to secure an interview. Each medical college will assess each application on its entirety and then offer interviews based on this. Some medical colleges do publish their cut off UCAT scores and it is best to contact them directly.
You can register with UCAT https://www.ucat.ac.uk Registration is from June 2 until September 22 of 2021 (12 noon).
