COVID-19 (coronavirus) latest update
Update 24 March 2020
On Wednesday, March 11, the World Health Organization classified COVID-19 (coronavirus) as a pandemic. The UCAT ANZ Consortium is continuing to monitor the global situation as it relates to the delivery of UCAT ANZ in 2020 (for entry to university in 2021). Working alongside our business partner Pearson VUE, we will act in accordance with all government mandates and official recommendations to safeguard our candidates around the world. Some international test centres are currently closed, but we expect this to change before July.
We do expect testing to go ahead in 2020. However, candidates will appreciate that in the current climate we cannot predict when our test centres in Australia, New Zealand and internationally will be operating normally. It is possible that timelines for testing will shift from those which usually apply. Registration and booking is open and we encourage candidates to proceed as normal under the current timeline. Please refer to the booking deadlines. A decision regarding testing times will be made closer to July and communicated to ALL our candidates.
Many schools are closed and universities are working remotely. It is important that candidates continue to work towards their academic goals and to prepare for the UCAT ANZ using the considerable amount of preparation materials available on our website. There is a suggested timetable for preparation given in our Preparation Plan video and we encourage candidates to follow this. Refer to the preparation advice and practice tests at our website.
We are liaising closely with our Consortium medical and dental schools; any changes to the delivery of the UCAT ANZ 2020 test will be made in consultation with these universities.
We will update our website as soon as we are able with any new information regarding delivery of the UCAT ANZ in 2020.
