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.
Applications for most courses in medicine, veterinary medicine/science, and dentistry, must be submitted by the UCAS deadline to guarantee equal consideration. Remember to state your choices through UCAS before the deadline – your UCAS application is considered invalid if you fail to state your choices.
You can only apply to 5 universities as part of your UCAS application, out of which only a maximum of 4 can be Medicine applications. The 5th choice has to be Non-Medicine, so do make sure you choose your university choices wisely based on your UCAT score! You will receive your UCAT score report immediately after you completed the test.
Once the UCAS application deadline has passed, the UCAT Consortium will liaise with UCAS and send your test results directly to your chosen universities.
