What is UKCAT ?

UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) test also known as UKCAT is an important standardized test that is used by a consortium of universities to select students for high-demand medicine, dentistry, and other health science courses. University admission officials verify final high school exam scores and conduct interviews along with UCAT scores during the admission process.

Since a student can only sit for one UKCAT test per application cycle, they must be well prepared for the test.
