The UCAT comprises of five sections
The “Verbal Reasoning” sub-test of the UCAT determines your skills in critically evaluating written information by assessing your logical-thinking skills. This section requires students to be very discerning in order to understand the information the passage provide.
The UCAT Quantitative Reasoning sub-test assesses logical-thinking abilities with regards to critically evaluating quantitative information. The section itself covers three major topic areas – problem solving, medical & research applications and data interpretation.
The Decision Making Test evaluates the application of logic to arrive at a conclusion, as well as consider arguments and statistics. Questions will be associated with either text, charts, graphs, tables, or diagrams, with additional information embedded within the question itself.
The Situational Judgement sub-test measures your ability to recognise important factors in real world situations and comprehending ways to resolve conflicts. It also determines how closely your responses aligns with the General Medical Council’s values.
The Abstract Reasoning sub-test examines convergent and divergent patterns to recognise patterns and relationships from the presented patterns.
