This article will explain the current impact of Covid-19 on the UCAT, but please be aware that the situation can change very quickly.
UCAT 2021 statement
The UCAT consortium released their most recent statement on the week commencing the 30thof March. As it stands the UCAT will go ahead as planned for 2021. As there is difficulty in predicting whether or not testing centres will be open as normal, the timelines for testing will be shifted from those that are normally used.
Both registration and booking will open later than normal. Testing will be starting slightly later too. Any decision that is made will be done so in consultation with the UCAT Consortium of medical and dental schools. It’s important to remember that any decision will not affect your application to medical or dental schools.
This page will be updated if there is any new information on the situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. In the mean time you can check for updates on the UCAT website
