UKCAT Decision Making
UKCAT® Situational Judgement
Timing: 31 minutes (+1 minute to read instructions)
The Decision Making section is designed to assess how exam candidates understand real life situations and to identify important factors and the appropriate way to behave, when dealing with them.
Situational Judgement tests are used widely in medical selection, including the selection of Foundation Doctors, GPs, and other medical specialities. So it's good to get used to taking this sort of test now, at the beginning of your medical career!
The test consists of a number of scenarios with a number of outcomes and things that you will need to take into account. Although the questions do not require medical or procedural knowledge to answer, there are a few key principles of medical professionalism that will help in assessing these questions. Although the questions are non-cognitive, this year, UKCAT have introduced correct answers, which are determined by a panel of medical experts.
We will run you through these principles and take you through vast amounts of practice material, over our 2 day classroom course. So you will feel more than comfortable with these questions for the real exam.
