UCAT Essentials

In 2019, the UMAT will be replaced by the UCAT – the University Clinical Aptitude Test.

The new exam will be two hours long, consisting of five multiple choice sections:

  • verbal reasoning
  • decision making
  • quantitative reasoning
  • abstract reasoning
  • situational judgement.

The exam will be online, instead of on paper.

MedEssentials and Essentials Education are working to develop study materials for the new exam. Subscribe to our e-newsletter or email [email protected] to join the waiting list and be the first to find out about the books.
