UKCAT Prep Dubai

The UKCAT (UK Clinical Aptitude Test) is a 120 minute (2 hour) computer-based test (CBT) which tests cognitive abilities and ethical attitude expected of future doctors and dentists and which medical and dental schools consider as one of the most important examination to assess aspiring medical students. About 27, out of the 34 UK Medical Schools, require the UKCAT as part of their application process and so the importance of the exam is unquestionable.

Latest UKCAT Scores


Introduction

The test is in five sections, each timed separately. The subsections are as follows: Verbal reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning, Decision Making and Situational Judgement. The initial 4 sections are scored on a scaled score of 300 to 900. However, Situational Judgement section is scored on a band from 1 to 4, with 4 representing the least score and 1, the highest.

Students will always get a minute to read the rubric for the Standard UKCAT & more than one minute for the UKCATSEN. However, candidates are not recommended to take a break in between the examination as TIME is a crucial aspect in this test when compared to any other examination.
