UCAT ANZ

The University Clinical Aptitude Test is used in the selection process by the UCAT ANZ Consortium of universities in Australia and New Zealand

UCAT ANZ Practice Tests and Resources

You should prepare for the test using these free official practice materials which have been developed by the UCAT Consortium to support test preparation.  

We recommend you start by looking at our UCAT 2019 Preparation Plan which provides a suggested approach and timetable for preparing for your test.

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 historic test name UKCAT. The following UCAT preparation materials represent the content of the UCAT ANZ test and may be used to familiarise yourself with the test format and to prepare for the test. 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.

PRACTICE TESTS

Our three, fully timed practice tests, which mimic closely the testing experience, are an essential part of your preparation.  Please note that when you take the live test your correct and incorrect answers will not be reported. 

QUESTION BANKS

10 question banks containing 400 official questions from all five subtests.  Use these to familiarise yourself with the type of questions you will see in your test.  Answer rationales are also provided for all questions. 

QUESTION TUTORIAL

An interactive tutorial which includes general advice on how to approach the test as well as strategies on how to approach and answer questions in the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning, Abstract Reasoning and Situational Judgement subtests.  

TOUR TUTORIAL

A tutorial which illustrates all the functions used in our computer-based tests including how to answer and review questions.

OFFICIAL MOBILE APP

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.

UCAT YOUTUBE CHANNEL

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 contains definitive information regarding the test including over 130 practice items. 

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.
