The 2023 UCAT ANZ must be sat between 3 July and 11 August 2023.

Other key dates and deadlines are on the UCAT ANZ Test Cycle page. We do not make exceptions to these deadlines.

Registration for the UCAT ANZ is a two-step process of registering an account and booking a test, using the Pearson VUE registration system. Multiple accounts are not permitted.

Step one - Register an Account

New candidates must register for a Pearson VUE account before they can book a test. Returning candidates should use their existing account. If you have forgotten your login details, please visit our FAQs for further advice.

  • You must create an online account with Pearson VUE before you can book your test. You need to register for your test personally – this cannot be done by a school/college.
  • Register with your legal name exactly as it appears on the approved form of Photo ID you intend to present at the test centre. If there is not an exact match, you may not be admitted to the test centre and will lose your test fee. Changes to your name on your account can be made by Pearson VUE Customer Services after seeing supporting ID.
  • The email address on your account will be used for all communication from Pearson VUE and the UCAT ANZ Office. You must check your email address throughout the test cycle for correspondence related to your test sitting. The phone number(s) you provide may be used by Pearson VUE to contact you in some circumstances. 
  • When you create an account you will need to provide the information requested here.
  • After registering your account, you will receive an email confirming your account has been created within 24 hours. This will contain the username you created.
  • You are assigned a UCAT ANZ ID number after registering your account (in the format ANZ12345678). The number is given in the top right corner of your account and should be used in all correspondence with Pearson VUE, the UCAT ANZ Office and in your university applications.

Before you proceed to Step two - please consider if you are eligible for the following:

  • If you are eligible for the Concession Scheme you should apply before booking your test. Once your Concession Application is approved you will be issued a concession voucher code to use when booking your test to pay the reduced test fee. Concession applications close on 10 May.
  • Candidates with special educational needs, disabilities or medical conditions who are entitled to extra time or other accommodations for school/college/university exams may be entitled to Access Arrangements when sitting the UCAT ANZ. Candidates must apply and be approved before their test can be booked. Applications for Access Arrangements close on 17 May.

Step two - Book your Test

Log in to your Pearson VUE account to book your test. 
Bookings will close on Wednesday 17 May 2023 at 11:59pm AEST.

  • Please refer to these Booking Instructions to assist you with booking your test.
  • The test is delivered in test centres in Australia, New Zealand and many overseas locations. See Test Locations for more information. Test centres and available dates are viewable in the booking system.
  • Once you have successfully booked your test you will receive two confirmation emails:
    • A booking confirmation email which contains your test appointment details. Your appointment will also be shown in your Pearson VUE account. If the appointment is not showing in your account and you have not received the booking confirmation email, then your booking has not been successfully completed.
    • A payment confirmation email which is a receipt of the test fee.

  • Bookings close on Wednesday 17 May at 11:59pm AEST.
  • Late bookings are accepted until Wednesday 31 May 2023 at 11:59pm AEST and incur an additional fee of $85.
  • Final late bookings are accepted until Monday 5 June 2023 at 11:59pm AEST and incur an additional fee of $185.
  • No further bookings will be accepted after the final late booking deadline of 5 June 2023 (11:59pm AEST) under any circumstances. It is your responsibility to ensure your booking is made successfully in advance of the deadlines. Claims of mitigating circumstances or technical errors affecting your ability to book by the published deadlines will not be accepted.

You may only take the test once in any test cycle. Any instances of multiple testing in the same year is considered candidate misconduct and will result in all test results being cancelled.
