Quantitative reasoning consists of 36 multiple-choice questions. You’ll face scenarios with data to help to solve the problems and be asked to choose one of five answers. The data could be in various forms, including tables, graphs and two/three-dimensional shapes.
These questions are designed to assess your skills in analysing data and applying it on a practical level, just as Doctors do when they make drug calculations or undertake clinical research.
Quantitative Reasoning is usually the highest-scoring section of the UCAT.
Between 2015 and 2020, the average score was around 676. The average quantitative reasoning score last year (in 2020) was 664.
