What is the UCAT test?

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is one of the many forms of admissions tests that is used by a selection of Universities within the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

The test must be completed in addition to passing A-Levels for those who wish to study medicine.  Over twenty seven thousand people took this test as of 2018.

The A-levels needed for medicine studies are just one part of a very complex application process to secure a spot for studying. With less than 16% of applications to study medicine in 2022 resulting in an offered place, the application process is very highly competitive.

The UCAT is designed to support a strong academic record by testing various situational and skill-based areas that a student would need to possess to make it in the world of medicine naturally. The scoring is split across five categories which all make up individual parts of the test. These are:

  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Decision Making
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Situational Judgement

You can access UCAT question banks on the UCAT website, which we have highlighted below:

Decision Making

Decision-making is a critical factor that must be assessed when seeking to be a medical professional.

Poor decision-making could lead to possibilities such as the patient taking the wrong medication, or delaying a serious and urgent surgery and much more.

Poor decision-making can be facilitated by a lack of professionalism. If a patient offends you or speaks rudely to you, some people may be tempted to react out of spite, which in turn could affect a patient’s life.

Excellent decision-making is the foundation of a competent medical professional, they are able to see signs and act accordingly in order to treat their patient quickly and effectively.

Not everybody is born with the ability to recognise and act accordingly, good decision making, like any other skill is developed with practice and learning, and that is what we at The Future Medic can offer you. Book today.

Verbal Reasoning

Verbal reasoning is the ability to solve a problem or spot an incongruinty using the written information provided within the situation in question, this is a core skill we use within our lives.

Verbal reasoning is a vital skill within the medical field as you will be reading a lot. Whether this is notes from other doctors, patients, previous medical notes on a paitent, you have to be able to come to conclusions with the information provided as this can make or break your patient’s treatment.

In regards to verbal reasoning during your UCAT test, there are two key question types in the verbal reasoning section:

True/False/Can’t Tell: Based on the passage of text, you need to reason whether the statements are true, false or it cannot be told whether it is true or false.

Free Text: You may see questions or incomplete statements, and you need to select the free text answers that best apply.

Abstract Reasoning

Abstract reasoning is a skill we all have to differing degrees, in its most base form abstract reasoning is essentially the ability to hypothesise, to find patterns or understandings beyond the words that are presented on a screen or paper.

Positive abstract reasoning allows someone to find creative solutions to problems, or allows them to express themselves in a more unique way. Common examples of abstract thinking include:

  • Describing something by using a metaphor
  • Speaking on a subject figuratively
  • A creative solution to a problem
  • Noticing relationships and patterns between what you observe
  • Thinking from a point of view beyond your own

So how can this form of thinking help in the medical field?

  • Noticing patterns in a paitent’s symptoms will help you identify and treat them quickly
  • Being able to see your patient’s point of view will be able to help you empathise and treat them in accordance to their needs and temperament.
  • Being able to translate your abstract thinking into conversation may be able to help your colleagues or patients with whatever subject you discuss.

In regards to your UCAT test, abstract thinking is applying your ability to recognise patterns in what appear to be a random arrangement of shapes. As opposed to a written question you need to decipher.

Situational Judgement

Situational judgement is the ability to make informed and clear decisions in relation to your current situation. This is a skill we carry out in almost all aspects of our lives.

On a base level, dealing with any patient requires situational judgement, how bad are their symptoms, are they physically resilient or healthy enough to have an operation? Are they allergic to the medicine you were going to prescribe for them?

On the other side of the spectrum, is the patient being aggressive or threatening towards you? Do they struggle to speak English or a language you communicate in? All of these scenarios will test your situational judgement.

Situational judgement is essentially the organisation of priorities in relation to any given situation, within the UCAT test you will be judged on your ability to understand the best course of action to take in the given scenarios.

Quantitative Reasoning

  • Quantitative reasoning is the ability to use mathematics (even if you don’t have the exact numbers) and acting upon the information in order to solve a real life situation.

    Maybe you have a paitent who is a baby who has an infection, and as a result you need to perscribe anti-biotics. By using quantative reasoning you will know that a baby doesnt need the same amount of antibiotics as a full grown adult, as their bodies are different.

    Similarly, two people may have an infection in the same place, but one person is more recovered than the other, using quantitative reasoning you will know who needs more/less medication than the other.

    So how is this tested on the UCAT?

    Essentially the UCAT will assess your quantitative reasoning on a series of questions related to mathematics, that are not entirely centered on medically related situations.
