Hi everyone, I would just like to tell people who are planning on taking the UKCAT in the coming months something rather useful.
If you recieve £30 a week from EMA or income support then if you follow this link, you can get a voucher sent to you via email which you can use when booking your UKCAT and it will cover the full cost of the test.
The UKCAT does cost a lot of money and I think that for people who fufil the criteria this voucher will be very handy.
Best of luck to all of you sitting the test this year!!

It is a shame as they don't make this fact well known. I didn't know about it last year and finding this now frustrated me slightly.

Back in my day we didn't have to be paid to go to school...
(We didn't have to do UKCAT either )

& similarly for the BMAT:
Can BMAT fees be reimbursed?
Candidates from the U.K. in receipt of full Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA), Job Seeker’s Allowance or Income Support may apply for their BMAT fees to be reimbursed. Candidates from within the E.U. in receipt of full Educational Maintenance Allowance, or the equivalent, may apply for their BMAT fees to be reimbursed.
Candidates registered at a closed centre, should speak to their Exams Officer, Head of Sixth Form or Careers Officer and ask them to contact us. Candidates registered through an open centre may contact us directly by writing to:
The BMAT Support Team
1 Hills Road
Standard entry fees will be reimbursed to candidates who have taken BMAT and applied to a BMAT university. Late entry fees and administration fees will not be reimbursed.
A copy of a candidate’s entitlement for benefits should be enclosed with the request for reimbursement of fees.
All requests for reimbursement of fees should reach the BMAT Support Team by Tuesday, 1st December 2009.
