UCAT Web booking and Final Booking Deadline

The UCAT web booking deadline is Thursday 17th September 2020 12 pm UK time. If you fail to book your UCAT before this deadline, you will need to book by calling Pearson VUE Customer Services before Wednesday 30th September 2020 12 pm UK time.

Do not leave this until the last minute as there could be unexpected problems such as a declined credit card. You should also note that the later you register, the less chance there is of securing a test session at your preferred date, time and location.
