ucat test format


Verbal Reasoning

The subtest measures your ability to critique and reason the findings. All questions in this subtest mainly revolve around two main ideas – to understand the given passage clearly and to determine whether a specific conclusion can be drawn from what is being presented. This section has eleven passages with a few passages followed by four questions expect you to choose an appropriate inference or conclusion and in rest of the passages your task is to find whether the conclusion drawn is parallel to what is stated in the passage by choosing either true, false or can’t tell.

Decision Making

From the title of this subtest, you understand that you need to make decisions based on various scenarios presented. The subtest measures your ability to use an approach which is logical to arrive at a conclusion. Your performance in this subtest is an appropriate measure of your ability to manage and deal with high risks as profession of a doctor is prone to uncertainty. All questions present a situation followed by a question to which you need to produce only one correct response or five responses by selecting yes or no to produce each response. You may consider using an onscreen calculator to answer a question involving mathematical computation.

Quantitative Reasoning

The subtest measures your numerical skills. To perform well on this subtest, you need to learn how to interpret problem solving questions involving numerals. This subtest is not solely about aptitude however it’s about the aptitude that you need to possess to be able to make right decisions on drug level calculations based on the patient’s weight, age and other factors and also in a few advanced cases to draw a statistical analysis of a particular case study. Most of the scenarios have four questions that follow and the rest are standalone questions/scenarios. Each question has five answer choices and your task is to choose an answer one which is appropriate.

Abstract Reasoning

The word abstract takes multiple interpretations when you relate it to a lifesaving profession. A critical abstract reasoning is essential for doctors as it is directly related to the conclusions that they draw basedon the patterns(symptoms) they observe – a few will be relevant and the rest will be distractors. To identify the relevant details you need be sharp and critical to the patterns that you observe and this subtest aims to measure one such interesting skill of yours. Abstract reasoning questions will be presented in four different formats throughout the section.

Situational Judgement

A doctor’s profession mostly revolves around a judgement that the doctor makes in every situation, the action solely follows the judgement. The subtest is designed to measure your integrity, team player, resilience, involvement, and perspective in a few medical, ethical and professional situations. You are expected to produce responses to two different ideas – appropriateness of possible actions and importance of possible considerations. While answering questions on appropriateness, you have to select an answer from the four answer choices – a very appropriate thing to do, appropriate, but not ideal, inappropriate, but not awful, and a very inappropriate thing to do. Similarly, for questions on importance, you have to select an answer from the four answer choices – very important, important, of minor importance, and not important.
