How will COVID-19 affect this year’s UCAT exam?

I am going to do my level best to be a one-stop professional online career coach to year 12s in particular at this time of the COVID-19 virus.I will share links to helpful resources and then you can contact me for further information as needed.

This blog is about the medical entry, or UCAT exam. The UCAT used to be called UMAT. It changed a couple of years ago so that the testing came in line with that carried out in the UK. So to be clear, UCAT is the new name for the UMAT.

so, how will COVID-19 affect this year’s UCAT exam? Here the link you need to find out the answers. This come from iCanMed and so it is the reliable source for everything you need to know at this time if you are hoping to sit this test. An update from last week, is this link to a iCanMed webinar for anyone interested.

Meanwhile, all year 11 and 12 students will no doubt be feeling concerned about access to support regarding tertiary applications for 2020. Your child may already be at home due to school closures are the need for social isolation. This may mean that they have little or no access to their school-based career coach. I can help as I offer online career coaching and I can set up Zoom consultations for groups of friends if you would like a tutorial on VTAC applications etc. Please keep an eye on my website or Facebook page for blogs on this as I’ll be publishing regularly.

Contact me about the UCAT medical entry process if you need more support by going to the contact page on my website.
