If you are considering applying to medicine or dentistry it is useful to consider all the options available. There are many medical and dental programmes that do not require the UKCAT as part of their application process. I would recommend taking the time to also research into these options, they might actually be a more suitable or an easier route for you to study medicine or dentistry. There are 26 UKCAT universities, However, it is important to also know the universities that do not require the UKCAT. You may decide to consider these universities if you do not achieve a particularly good UKCAT score. They require other admission exams such as the BMAT or GAMSAT. It is important to know their full requirements before applying, so make sure to have a look on the their websites for further information.
