UCAT 2023 Test Cycle

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is a computer-based admissions test, used by a consortium of UK Universities and non-UK associate member universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programs.

You are required to sit the UCAT 2023 if you are applying for entry in 2023 (or deferred entry in 2024) to a relevant course at a UK Consortium or non-UK Associate Member University.

The UCAT is delivered in Pearson VUE test centers throughout the UK and in 130+ countries worldwide.

UCAT 2023 dates are now confirmed by the UCAT Consortium. Find out all the key UCAT 2023 dates here.

UCAT strongly advises candidates to test as early as possible. If you choose to book a late test date and then encounter illness or other issues which prevent you from attending your test appointment you may not be able to reschedule within the test period.

  • It is your responsibility to book and sit your test within the test window.

  • UCAT Consortium Universities expect international applicants to take the test, which could mean traveling to another country.

  • If travel to a test center is difficult because of distance, pandemic, war, civil unrest, or natural disaster or you are not able to go to a test center due to a significant medical reason (either COVID-19 related or other circumstances), please refer to OnVUE online proctored testing information before booking your test.

  • Our ‘fit to test’ policy means if a candidate attends their test they are declaring themselves fit to take the test. Further details can be found here.

  • If you are concerned that illness, injury, or personal circumstances mean you will not be ‘fit to test’ throughout the 2023 test window, you must contact the UCAT Office for advice before sitting your test. If you choose to sit your test against this advice, UCAT will not accept this as a mitigating circumstance.
