COVID-19, UCAT 2020 & MedEntry

Your safety is our priority

Ensuring the safety of our students, particularly during this critical year of schooling, is our priority. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, MedEntry has taken the following proactive measures to ensure the safety of our students and staff.

Workshops will run online

UCAT workshops will run online to ensure the safety of our students and staff. This policy has been guided by advice from various national and international health sources, as well as governmental directives.

MedEntry has extensive experience in running online workshops and has sophisticated technology to ensure that these workshops are run in an engaging and interactive manner, just as in-person events. All workshops will be run by our experienced and expert specialist doctors, and will cover the same content as in-person events.

Our services will remain uninterrupted

MedEntry will be maintaining and extending our services to provide high quality UCAT preparation in a manner that maintains the health and wellbeing of our students.

We have been preparing students for medical entry for two decades, and are well prepared for our organisation to respond quickly to the changing conditions. Our procedures ensure we can continue to seamlessly provide training to our students. We have a Education Continuity Plan in place that includes the ability to have staff work remotely, eliminating any potential disruption to your UCAT preparation.

MedEntry’s extensive, global staff members are continuing to work on providing even more quality UCAT resources for our students, delivered on our online, interactive platform. We are currently developing new skill trainers, additional quality questions and more services for our students.

UCAT 2021

UCAT UK 2020 proceeded, with three main changes: 

  1. Students were able to decide whether to sit UCAT at home (via a remote proctoring service) or at a Pearson VUE testing centre. 
  2. Registrations to sit UCAT UK 2020 opened on 1 July 2020. 
  3. UCAT testing took place between 3 August and mid October 2020. 

The manner in which UCAT 2021 will be delivered will depend on how the COVID-19 pandemic progresses.
