Preparation Advice and Resources

We advise you to prepare for the UCAT ANZ using these free official practice materials which have been developed by the UCAT Consortium. We believe that all candidates should have access to free preparation materials to support their test preparation. The question banks and practice tests are produced by the UCAT Consortium and are representative of the live test. 

Candidates should be aware that while there are many commercial companies offering coaching courses and materials for the test, the UCAT ANZ Consortium does not work with any of these companies or endorse the use of their materials. We strongly advise candidates to use the free official practice materials on our website and to be cautious about using materials and courses from other providers. For more information, please read the information under Prepare

We recommend you start by viewing the preparation plan, tutorials and test tools on this page before moving onto the Question Banks and Practice Tests.
