UCAT Scores and UCAT Scoring

🏫

UCAT Scores Guide Per Section

First 4 Sections

The main four sections (Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Decision Making and Abstract Reasoning) of the UCAT are scored out of 3600 marks. You can either take your total score, or mean the four sections' scores to get a score out of 900. 


The average UCAT score is approximately 645, therefore anything 700 and above will place you in the top 30% of UCAT test takers, and is likely to boost your application and help maximise your chance of receiving an invitation to interview. 


UCAT Situational Judgement Test

The UCAT SJT is scored from band 1-4 with band 1 being the highest and band 4 the lowest. In terms of the situational judgement test - an excellent score would be band 1 in the UCAT situational judgement test, and a good score would be scoring a band 2 in the UCAT situational judgement test.  


This is how UCAT scores are broken down:

  • Verbal Reasoning: Score between 300 and 900

  • Quantitative Reasoning: Score between 300 and 900

  • Abstract Reasoning: Score between 300 and 900

  • Decision Making: Score between 300 and 900

  • Situational Judgement: Score between Band 1 and Band 4


It is important to be strategic using your UCAT score to apply to the correct university.
