We believe that an admissions process based entirely on predicted A-level achievements doesn't necessarily serve your best interests as an applicant. So, in common with other UK universities, we ask all our applicants to take the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) in the year that they submit their application.
The test is open to everyone, regardless of A-level predictions. It helps us to improve access to our course specifically by identifying students whose predicted A-level grades are low, but who are in fact very able and may go on to achieve the results they need to enter medical school.
Practice tests are available on the UKCAT website, with both timed and untimed versions. We strongly recommend you to try these -- they are by far the best way to get used to the style and timing of the real thing.
We don't endorse or recommend any commercially available preparation materials. These are not related to or licensed by UKCAT in any way.
How we use UKCAT results
We're currently reviewing how we will use the UKCAT for 2014 entry.
