The University Clinical Aptitude test or UCAT (formerly UKCAT) is the standard test for entry into Medical School in the UK. The test is primarily designed to evaluate a candidate's suitability for studying medicine by assessing varying applicable skills. It is NOT a test of academic ability. For perhaps this reason, some historically high-achieving students have struggled with the UCAT exam. The exam is arguably the most important a doctor will ever take in their career.
