The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT), previously known as UKCAT is an admission test that allows UK universities to choose applicants who have suitable abilities, outlook and behaviours to be successful in clinical careers like medicine and dentistry. Having good UCAT results will boost your UCAS application when applying for medicine and dentistry programmes in the UK.
The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is used by top medical schools in the UK to identify applicants who will succeed in Medicine, Biomedicine and dentistry courses. It can be taken only once in an admissions cycle, in August or October. Students are tested on their problem-solving, critical thinking and writing skills. This is a unique opportunity for you to show that you have the necessary skills along with the basic knowledge of science to thrive in the clinical field.
The Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) is used by medical schools in the United States and Canada to screen for appropriate future medical students.

Critical thinking and reasoning skills are also tested.
