Speed and accuracy
For candidates, all answers are marked automatically, improving accuracy and providing instant results.
Each university obtains detailed information on all its applicants and can use the results in its own way to support admissions.
During the period July – October 2006, 19,000 people took the UK Clinical Aptitude Test.
“The first year has been an overwhelming success; it’s been very hard work, but I don’t think that anybody thought it would be so successful.” said Prof Johnson.
Students will be tracked over time to discover the link between test scores and real performance to help develop the recruitment and selection process. As Prof Johnson puts it:
“In the long term, we’re not just interested in producing good medical students, but in producing the best doctors and dentists.”
As part of this tracking, a selection of noncognitive assessments are being trialled in the last 30 minutes of the UK Clinical Aptitude Test.
