You are strongly recommended to register and sit the UKCAT at your earliest convenience to ensure places are available at a local centre.  Each year there are candidates who book a late test and encounter real problems when they fall ill or experience other problems preventing them from taking that testing slot. This can be avoided by booking to take your test early.  We advise that you read the section on extenuating circumstances carefully.

If there is no test centre in your country or you believe you might be exempt from the test on any other grounds (e.g. medical) please see the rules for exempt candidates.


All UKCAT candidates must complete the registration process using the Pearson VUE online registration system before they can book their test.  You need to register for the test personally – this cannot be done by your school/college.

You register for the test by following the ‘sign in’ link at the top of this page and following the instructions to create an online account.  You will need to provide the information requested in thisquestionnaire which also explains why we ask for it and what the data is used for.  You may need to ask your parent(s)/carer(s) for assistance in answering the questions.

When you have completed the registration process you will be sent an email containing your password which will allow you to book your test.

All candidates should book the standard UKCAT test unless they meet the criteria to sit the UKCATSEN, our extended test which includes additional time for candidates with special educational needs.  Please see the section on Candidates with Disabilities for more information.  It is the candidate’s responsibility to book the correct test.

If you cannot find a convenient test location and date please contact Customer Services who may be able to assist. Please note that availability of convenient dates and times may be limited in the last weeks of testing.  For some of our testing centres, the UKCAT booking system only allows test slots to be allocated 90 days in advance. 

There is no difference in content between the UKCAT sat during the summer or autumn period. The increased price reflects demand on resources at particular times of the year. We recommend candidates sit the test during the summer period and pay the lower test fee.  Registration and test fees depend on the test centre location, not on your place of residence or nationality.

Candidates are advised to refer to our pages regarding Bursaries to see whether they are eligible to have the full costs of the test covered.
