UCAT ANZ Eligibility

Eligible candidates

The UCAT ANZ test is only available to a candidate whose educational level at the time of sitting the test is that they are undertaking or have completed the final year of secondary schooling, or higher. For example, candidates registering for UCAT ANZ 2023 should have completed, or plan to complete their final year of secondary schooling in 2023, that is, Year 12 in Australia or Year 13 in New Zealand.

Candidates are eligible to sit UCAT ANZ if they have commenced or completed an undergraduate degree. 
It is noted, however, that not all undergraduate degree programs for which UCAT ANZ is a prerequisite will offer places for non-school leavers. Candidates are advised to check the UCAT ANZ Consortium university websites for further information. Information on GAMSAT and graduate-entry medical and dental courses is available at the GAMSAT website.

Only a limited number of UCAT ANZ Consortium universities require international students to sit UCAT ANZ and, if so, it will only be required in specific circumstances. Candidates are advised to check the UCAT ANZ Consortium university websites for further information.

Candidates who are not eligible to sit UCAT ANZ

Students in Australian Year 11 or lower are NOT eligible to sit the UCAT ANZ. This includes Year 11 students undertaking one or more Year 12 subjects. Year 12 students completing Year 12 over two years are only eligible to sit the UCAT ANZ in their final year.

Any person having an affiliation with a UCAT coaching business, for example, in their capacity as a tutor, or as an item developer, or having some financial interest in a UCAT coaching business are not eligible to sit the UCAT ANZ.

Note the following:

  • Candidates can only sit the test once in any test cycle. Instances of multiple testing in the same year is treated as candidate misconduct and all results are cancelled.
  • Candidates are not permitted to sit both the UCAT ANZ and the UCAT (UK) in the same year (i.e. UCAT ANZ 2023 and UCAT UK 2023). Candidates who are applying to Australian/ New Zealand and UK universities should sit the UCAT ANZ and refer to the Results page for further details about how to have UCAT ANZ results to UK universities.
