UCAT Test Dates for Applicants in 2020

The UCAT Consortium has yet to release the official test dates for candidates taking the UCAT in 2020. Based on the trend for years, we have listed down the key dates (in this case, the key months) below. The UCAT testing period lasts for 3 months and typically takes place between July and October.

Do take note that your 2020 UCAT results are only valid for the 2021 UCAS Admissions cycle – for entry into medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry courses in 2021 or deferred entry in 2022.

It is important to keep tabs on all things UCAT for proper planning and to fully maximise your preparation time. For a start, booking a test would require you to first create an account with Pearson VUE and this has to be done by you – not by your school.

Approximately 24 hours after completing your UCAT test, you will be able to view your UCAT score report through your Pearson VUE account.

Remember to state your choices through UCAS before the deadline.

Applications for most courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry, must be submitted by the UCAS deadline to guarantee equal consideration. You can only state five choices in total and this can be decided once you receive your UCAT results. Your UCAS application is considered invalid if you fail to state your choices.

Once the UCAS application deadline has passed, the UCAT Consortium will liaise with UCAS and send your test results directly to your chosen universities.

Completing the UCAT is not the end of your admissions process, universities will also look at your academic and non-academic achievement, personal statement and interview performance. It’s time to make your aspiration an achievement, start planning and it’ll be a breeze!
