Is UCAT a fair test?
3 years ago by Rob
Every year, debates continue about UCAT. Is it fair? Is it biased? Is it an achivement test or an aptitude test? Is it good? Is it evil? Does it measure intelligence? Does it measure anything? Does it measure how well you will do in medical school? Does it predict whether you will be a ‘good’ doctor?
When a test of similar nature was introduced in the USA in 1926 debates raged on for decades. It is now accepted as a necessary part of medical school selection criteria.
These questions come up every year for one good reason: Nobody can answer them. But there is one thing that UCAT does predict accurately: that is your skills in critical thinking, logical reasoning, problem solving, abstract reasoning and ethics. These skills are essential to be successful in any profession.
