Some students prefer to sit their UCAT exam early in the test cycle. This gives you the benefit of freeing up time over the summer to focus on other aspects of the admissions process, such as work experience and the Personal Statement – and to prepare for the BMAT if you’re planning to sit this admissions test too.
Others choose a later date in the test cycle because they feel that they need extra UCAT prep time, or have other plans (e.g. a holiday) that prevents them from sitting it earlier.
The official advice from test organisers is to choose an early test date – in case you need to reschedule if, for example, you become unwell in the run-up to test day.
Yes, you can reschedule your UCAT test as long as you give enough notice. This is another benefit of booking an early sitting, as you can always move the test date if you need to.
UCAT has a specific policy about rescheduling or cancelling your test, which explains that you can make changes via your Pearson Vue account up to 24 hours before your test.
If you need to make changes after the booking deadline, you’ll need to call Pearson Vue customer services to do this.
If you do need to change your test date, please be aware that there are a few steps involved and the change won’t be confirmed until you receive an email confirming the reschedule. You can see the policy here.
