COVID-19: UCAT FAQ

UCAT

2020-03-29

In regards to COVID-19, many of you may be wondering what will happen with your UCAT exam. Thankfully, the UCAT Consortium announced on 19th March 2020 that they expect the test to go ahead in 2020.

Here, we provide you with answers to a number of relevant questions that you may have on this matter.

Q. Will the UCAT definitely go ahead in 2020?

A. The UCAT has stated that they expect the testing to go ahead but booking and testing will take place at a later date than originally planned. No one can definitely say that this situation will not change, but until further announcements are made you should prepare for the UCAT under the assumption that it will go ahead this year.

Q. Will all UCAT test centres be open?

A. At the moment, there is no guarantee on whether all testing centres will be open normally, and the testing timelines may shift.

Q. How will I know if the UCAT situation will change?

A. We will add updates here if/when they have been confirmed. You may also get an email from Pearson VUE if things dramatically change.

Q. Who makes the decision on whether the UCAT schedule will be changed, or if the UCAT will go ahead at all?

A. The UCAT Consortium will make decisions on any changes to be made to the UCAT following discussions with Pearson VUE and consultations with its consortium of medical and dental schools. Of course, these decisions will be made in accordance with government policies.

Q. I haven’t registered for the UCAT yet, can I still do this?

A. Certainly. You can still register through the UCAT website. Refer to our step-by-step guide if you need any help.

Medify’s Advice

Given that the UCAT will likely go ahead (albeit with some possible adjustments to the schedule), it is very important that you remain calm and carry on diligently preparing for the UCAT.

For now, please take good care of yourselves and each other and make use of this quiet self-isolation time to recharge, revise and prepare for when everything gets back to normal.
