How Are UCAT Scores Scaled?

Advice & Insight From UCAT Specialists

​In the first 4 sections of the exam (Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning), a total score is determined (ranging from 1200 to 3600), and an average calculated. This average score is used when comparing candidates’ UCAT results. Whilst 900 is the highest score, candidates can achieve this score without answering 100% of the questions correctly. This is because this value takes into account factors such as the difficulty of the exam and how well the entire cohort does, allowing a comparison to be made. For the Situational Judgement section, the ‘Band’ that the student is used to assess the section and is provided to universities; the Bands range from Band 1 (Highest) to Band 4 (Lowest).
