There is only one difference between the UKCAT and UCAT.

There is no ‘K’ in UCAT. That is all.

The UCAT (formerly the UKCAT) has been been testing students’ aptitude and professional behaviour for over 12 years.

If you ask someone in the UK how they prepared for the UKCAT - you’re likely to hear Medify.

The UKCAT & UMAT Consortiums made a decision

The UKCAT consortium and UMAT consortium discussed the fate of how students would get into medical, dental and clinical science programmes for ANZ universities.

They agreed that the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) will replace the UMAT.

This change has taken effect and the first UCAT test cycle will be in July 2019.

The UKCAT will become the UCAT

The UKCAT will get a name change for consistency.

There will be no change to the content - it is purely a cosmetic change. Students in the UK will take the same exam as Australia and New Zealand...an exam students have been taking for years.

These students will prepare for the UCAT in the same way students have prepared for the UKCAT.
