How the UKCAT Score Is Calculated

The scores on the UKCAT verbal reasoning, decision making, quantitative reasoning, and abstract reasoning subtests are based on the number of questions answered correctly, and points are not deducted for incorrect responses. Since the number of questions on each section varies, the raw scores need to be converted to scaled scores. The scaled scores for these sections have a common range of 300-900. To determine the total scaled UKCAT score, simply add up the individual scores of each section. Scaled scores in 2017 range between 1200-3600. For example, if you score a 710 on verbal reasoning, a 650 on decision making, an 830 on quantitative reasoning, and a 750 on abstract reasoning, your total scaled UKCAT score will be 2940.


How the UKCAT SJT Section Is Scored

The UKCAT SJT subtest is scored a bit differently from the cognitive tests. The raw score is provided in one of four bands, with one being the highest band and four being the lowest band. Learn more about UKCAT Situational Judgement scoring.


How Do I Find out My UKCAT Scores?
