UCAT ANZ Preparation Plan
You can begin by looking at the UCAT ANZ Preparation Plan video above which provides a suggested approach and timetable for preparing for your test.
This Preparation Plan is also available to download and print.
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. The resources and advice below has been produced using feedback from previous high-scoring candidates.
Candidates should be aware that while there are many commercial companies publishing books and offering coaching for our test, the UCAT ANZ Consortium does not work with any of these companies or endorse the use of their materials. For more information, please read the information under Prepare.
We recommend you start by viewing the preparation tools on this page before moving onto the Question Banks and Practice Tests.
This tutorial illustrates all the functions used in our computer-based test including how to answer questions, open the calculator, move from screen to screen, and also how to utilise the flag and review function.
These tutorials include general advice on how to approach the test as well as giving an overview of each of the different subtests within the UCAT ANZ.
Each in-depth tutorial includes tips and strategies on how to approach and answer each of the different question types within all five subtests.
These example questions and practice tests are produced by the UCAT Consortium and are representative of the live test. We recommend you use these official materials to prepare for your test.
Please read the Test Tools available to all candidates before you go any further with your preparation. These relate to important test features such as the onscreen calculator, keyboard shortcuts and note taking. You should be familiar with this information before sitting your test, as these can save you valuable time on your test day.
High-scoring candidates who have sat the UCAT ANZ share tips and advice on how they prepared for the test.
These resources for advising prospective candidates about UCAT ANZ 2024 will be available in December 2023:
