What is the difference between UKCAT and UKCATSEN?
The only difference is the amount of time awarded to answer the questions in each given section. There is no difference in the difficulty or the scoring of the exam. The timings below relfect time to answer the questions, plus 2 minutes to read section instructions. For example, in the Verbal Reasoning section a UKCATSEN candidate would have 2 minutes to read instructions and 26 minutes to answer the questions, instead of the standard 1 minute per section.
|Section||Questions||Standard Test Time||Extended Test Time|
|Verbal Reasoning||44||22 minutes||27.5 minutes|
|Decision Making||29||32 minutes||40 minutes|
|Quantitative Reasoning||36||25 minutes||31.25 minutes|
|Abstract Reasoning||55||14 minutes||17.5 minutes|
|Situational Judgement||69||27 minutes||33.75 minutes|
|Total time||120 minutes||150 minutes|
