By User acceptance testing we mean validating
whether all the user requirements specified in SRS is met after code freeze. Beta Testing is done at 90-95% of code freeze. Any modifications to be done at this stage is a high level decision

User Acceptance testing is an opportunity for the customer to evaluate and accept a system and/or application based on meeting or exceeding the defined requirements as communicated to the vendor. This trial of testing is to verify that the new system is designed according to specification and delivers the business process functionality.
This testing is generally performed by the  customers and the emphasis is more on design because they will attempt to use the system as if it is in production.  So every  requirement may not be evaluated in UAT due to limited time and resources,however; requirements testing is basically done in Unit and SIT testing phases.  If the new system/application meets the customers needs, then the system will be "Accepted" by the customer and is implemented.
