About the Exam
The UKCAT is a test used by medical and dental schools to assess several innate mental abilities deemed significant by these organizations. The test is multiple choice and is broken down into several individually timed sections including verbal reasoning (44 questions), quantitative reasoning (36 questions), decision making (29 questions), statistical judgment (69 questions) and abstract reasoning (55 questions). The full test takes 120 minutes to complete. The test is offered twice a year, once in the summer and once in the fall, and taking the test twice in the same year is considered unprofessional behavior.
