UCAT Situational Judgement Practice Test

Situational judgment is a psychological aptitude test; it is an assessment method used to evaluate your ability in solving problems in work-related situations. Situational Judgement Tests (or SJTs) are widely used in medicine as one of the criteria when deciding on applicants; it is used for the Foundation Programme and GP applications.

The aim of the situational judgment section is to assess your ability to understand situations that you could encounter as a medical student or doctor and how you would deal with them. It is a method to test some of the qualities required in a healthcare professional (e.g. integrity and ability to work in a team).

In the UCAT, the situational judgment section consists of 20 scenarios with 67 items. Each scenario will have 3-6 items. You will have 26 Minutes to complete this section, which translates to approximately 22 seconds per item. As with all UKCAT sections, you have one additional minute to read the instructions at the start. Ensure you’re careful to mark your intended answers when working at this pace.
