What does your UKCAT score mean?

Scores are between 300 (minimum) and 900 (maximum).

Your score depends on two factors:

  1. The answers you give
  2. The “raw” score agreed by UKCAT testers

While point 1 is straightforward enough, point 2 involves some explanation.

Each year, new UKCAT questions are created by experts in assessment. These questions are tested for validity, reliability, and to remove any bias (for example, a question that is based on a particular ethnic group’s culture).

When the questions are agreed, the planned UKCAT test is taken by a group of Pearson Vue professionals. Their scores are aggregated in a way that pinpoints where the average (modal and mean) score is 600. This is then used as the standard by which your answers are measured against, and because this varies each year, any mock exam will only ever indicate what your UKCAT score will be.
