The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is a test that is beginning to be used in the selection process by a consortium of UK University Medical and Dental Schools. It is run by the UKCAT Consortium in partnership with Pearson VUE. It was first introduced in 2006, and will remain in test mode for some years beyond this date.

The test is designed to give information on the candidates’ mental abilities, as well as attitudes and possible professional behaviour. The test is expected to start helping universities make more informed choices between medical and dental applicants in the years to come, once the test has been fully validated.

The UKCAT is designed to be a test of aptitude and attitude, not academic achievement. The latter is already demonstrated by A-Levels, Scottish Higher or undergraduate degrees. It attempts to assess a certain range of mental abilities and behavioural attributes identified as useful. These mental abilities include critical thinking as well as logical reasoning and inference.

UKCAT Test Structure
  • Verbal reasoning – assesses candidates’ ability to think logically about written information and arrive at a reasoned conclusion. It will take 22 minutes, doing 11 passages and makes up 44 marks.
  • Quantitative reasoning – assesses candidates’ ability to solve numerical problems. It will take 23 minutes, doing 9 tables, charts, graphs etc.; and makes up 36 marks.
  • Abstract reasoning – assesses candidates’ ability to infer relationships from information by convergent and divergent thinking. It will take 16 minutes, doing 13 sets of questions and makes up 65 marks.
  • Decision Analysis – assesses candidates’ ability to deal with various forms of information to infer relationships, to make informed judgments, and to decide on an appropriate response. It will take 32 minutes, doing 1 set of information and makes up 26 marks.

The UKCAT also tests an additional domain:
SITUATIONAL JUDGEMENT – identified aspects of each candidate’s personality and character in order to determine their suitability for a career in medicine or dentistry. It will take 27 minutes with 13 scenarios and makes up 60 marks.
The entire test is delivered by computer. Candidates are not allowed to bring external materials in to the exam. A basic calculator used to be provided in the past years of 2011, along with a white board and a marker pen or paper with a pencil, for taking notes, however in 2012 there will only be a simple digital calculator on the screen. The equipment and conditions vary slightly between different test centers. Including warm-up time (time allocated to reading the instructions), the test lasts a maximum of two hours. Each of the UKCAT subtests is in a multiple choice format and is separately timed.

A Letter of Recommendation is one of the most important components of your entire application materials. It will help the admission committee in reviewing your qualities, abilities, strengths and weakness, overall it reflects the impression you hold over your professors, peers or who ever authors your recommendation. It gives a sort of insight as to what you are and capable of, LORs also weigh your chances of getting an admission at times, when your academics, scores are not so strong.

First of all, you should choose a good recommender, talk to him personally and explain, about how important this recommendation of letter is for you. You should also provide him (recommender) a clear picture about the type of university, you are attending along with academic information such as your intending major of study, awards won by you, extra curricular activities, publications, research, your work experience, your strength & weakness, hobbies all these are essential information.

A letter of Recommendation should have the following basic elements, though they may differ depending upon the persons style of evaluation. a)  Recommenders information? This may be highlighted on the letterhead about the position or status held by the evaluator, or you can provide a brief introduction about the recommender in a paragraph, mostly the former is preferred. b) Establish a relationship with the student- A recommender should establish a relationship between him and the student, whether the student was attending lecture in his class or assisting him in a laboratory or working under him etc., c) Description- Recommenders describe about the qualities about the student and highlight his presentation skills, command over the English language, leadership qualities and many more. At the same time justify that his evaluation is fair and reasonable. d)Evaluation- Final evaluation of the candidate and a statement of overall evaluation, whether he is fairly good, good, average, below average etc. e)Signature & Date-Student should ensure that LORs are duly signed & dated, with proper attestation made by the recommender. Sometimes universities may ask students to submit Recos directly from the recommender in contents. Hence you should ensure that the author has signed it by confirming with him.

a) You should have completed 16 years of education, if you intend to pursue a Masters Degree. You need to take TOEFL, GRE Tests as a prerequisite, and for Management Programs GMAT. Note: Only a handful of Universities offer programs for those students, who have completed 15 years of education, subject to certain conditions. b) You should have completed your 10+2, if you intend to study a Bachelors Degree and take Mandatory Tests such as TOEFL and SAT.

The Xerox or true copies of your mark sheets attested by the concerned University Registrar or Asst. Registrar or Controller of examiner in sealed envelopes are known as Official Transcripts.

The statement of purpose and the recommendation letters are the key documents for the academic committee to favorably consider your application. They need to be well written as they give the university insights into what kind of person you are.

The Assistantship has to be decided by the university authorities so we cannot assure.

Some Universities do offer Financial Aid/Scholarship, provided if you have a very good profile, but we cannot guarantee you on that.

The Universities demand SAT-II for some specific programs. SAT-I and TOEFL are sufficient for the regular programs.

In US, private bodies rank universities, which has resulted in serious misgivings about the same. Many of the top-notch universities refuse to participate in such rankings. Hence ranking of universities should not be taken as the only criteria of selection. Students should also consider other important factors like the accreditation of the university, program accreditation, strength of the faculty, infrastructure, on-going researches and placement support at the university.
