UCAT ANZ Practice Tests and Resources
The information below is subject to change. Finalised details of the 2019 test programme will be updated in due course.
You should prepare for the test using these free official practice materials which have been developed by the UCAT Consortium to support test preparation.
Please note, although new to Australia and New Zealand for 2019, the UCAT has been used for over 12 years in the UK under the test name UKCAT. The following preparation materials, although in some instances referred to as UKCAT, represent the exact content of the UCAT ANZ test and may be used to familiarise yourself with the test format and to prepare for the test. These preparation materials will be re-published prior to March 2019 to reflect the new international test name of UCAT. As practice materials are compiled from previous test questions, there may be a higher proportion of questions with a UK context than you will see in the new 2019 UCAT ANZ.
Our official mobile app for Apple and Android users. This cannot replicate all question types from the live test but is a useful preparation tool to complement our other resources. The updated UCAT app is due to go live late February 2019.
The official UCAT YouTube channel has a number of videos to support preparation. High-scoring, former UCAT candidates share advice on their preparations for the test, plus a member of the UK based UCAT team talks through the steps involved in preparing for the test. There are also videos showing what to expect in a Pearson VUE test centre.
2019 OFFICIAL GUIDE
The 2019 Official Guide will be published in late February 2019.
Commercial Preparation Materials
Candidates should be aware that whilst 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. Taking advantage of these opportunities can cost candidates a great deal of money and we would advise you to be sceptical about claims they can help you do well in the test by coaching.
Commercial organisations will be using items that are not necessarily of the standard you will encounter in the UCAT and this may distort your performance whilst practising. Screen views may be different and commercial organisations are unlikely to include the new item types which you may encounter in your test. They may also not replicate the UCAT scoring accurately and may give misleading indicators of your anticipated UCAT score.
We therefore strongly advise candidates to use the official Practices Tests and Question Banks on our website, and to be cautious about using resources from any commercial providers as these are not affiliated with UCAT in any way.
