The UKCAT is offered between 3rd July and 3rd October 2017 (this is subject to availability at your local Pearson VUE test centre). This means that within this specified time of 3 months (one test cycle), you may take the UKCAT only once, depending on the dates that the testing centre in your locality offers. Whatever time in the year you decide to take the test, it is essential that you register between 2nd May (9 am) and 19th September (5 pm) 2017 for the test. The specific test dates between the 3rd of July and 3rd of October for your local Pearson VUE Centre will be released only after the 2nd of May this year when the registration opens for the test.
Registration and booking for the test can be done on the official UKCAT website. While taking the test early has its advantages (such as a guarantee of getting a seat at the local test centre since test dates fill up quickly), be sure to take it only when you are thoroughly prepared.
Candidates receive their UKCAT scores as they are exiting the venue – there is no specific date as to when scores will be released.
