The MCT Assessment
The MCT is delivered by computer-based assessment, through a network of test centres administered by Pearson VUE. Candidates are offered a choice of locations during the process of booking through Pearson VUE. Locations include China, New York, India, London, Scotland and selected cities in mainland Europe. To have a look at test centre availability, candidates can use the Seat Availability function on the Pearson VUE Kaplan QLTS website.
Candidates must register with Kaplan QLTS by the registration deadline in order to be able to book a place on the MCT through Pearson VUE. All bookings (including payment) must be made by the booking deadline. The registration and booking deadlines can be found here.
Candidates are advised that test centres in central London are very popular. If there is no availability within London, candidates may wish to consider test centres outside of central London that are reachable by train from London. A selection of these test centres and their journey times are shown here. All test centres are subject to availability.
