COVID-19 and UCAT UK 2020: What Should I Do?


With the COVID-19 pandemic and rapid escalation of cases across the United Kingdom and the world, you may be wondering how this affects UCAT UK 2020 and your UCAT preparation. This blog answers some frequently asked questions. 

Will UCAT UK 2020 be going ahead?

It is very likely that UCAT UK 2020 will be proceeding. However, it is likely that timelines for testing will shift. Registration and booking for UCAT UK has been officially postponed, and will open later than normal. It is also likely that testing for UCAT UK will start later than the usual July commencement:

As the situation is changing rapidly, you can find updates on and on the UCAT UK Official website:

MedEntry will also be providing updates to all our students.

Should I continue with my UCAT Preparation?

Yes! We advise students to continue with their UCAT preparation. UCAT may be postponed, but it will not be eliminated as part of medical entry requirements. Students will need to be well prepared for this difficult and competitive exam. Furthermore, UCAT skills need to be developed over time, so the preparation you do now will be important. 

We also wish to reassure students that MedEntry’s extensive, global staff have taken several proactive measures to ensure that our preparation services will not be disrupted during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been preparing students for medical entry for over two decades, and are well prepared for any eventuality. 

What else should I do?

This year is already a challenging and difficult one, without the added stress of a worldwide pandemic. It is very important that you look after your physical, mental and emotional health.

This includes minimising your chances of contracting COVID-19 by:

  • Keeping your distance from others
  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Seeking advice if you become unwell or have come in contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19

It also includes:

  • Staying in touch with friends and family (via virtual means if necessary)
  • Eating well, sleeping well and exercising safely and regularly
  • Speaking to someone if you are feeling down or overwhelmed

We understand this is a stressful, difficult and uncertain time for our students. If you are in need of help or support, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
