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

Unprofessional Behaviour

We expect our candidates to meet minimum standards of acceptable behaviour during testing and during any interactions with the UCAT ANZ Consortium and Pearson VUE staff.  Please familiarise yourself with the UCAT Consortium Examination Rules before your test. 

Where candidates fall short of these minimum standards, such incidents will be thoroughly investigated.  Where such allegations of misconduct are upheld, we reserve the right to take actions which may include: 

  • withdrawal of all test results;

  • disqualification from sitting the test for a period in the future;

  • the sharing of the outcomes of the investigation with legitimate third parties (which may include TACs and Consortium universities).

Examples of misconduct include: 

  • attempting to take the UCAT ANZ in any year prior to the final year of secondary schooling;

  • testing more than once in any test cycle;

  • breach of security arrangements;

  • impersonation;

  • failure to follow invigilator or other staff instructions;

  • creating a disturbance;

  • using prohibited aids (e.g. notes, note paper, calculators, mobile phone, audio/recording devices, dictionaries etc.);

  • copying another candidate’s work;

  • giving or receiving assistance from another candidate during the test;

  • using the test questions, their content or information about them for purposes other than sitting your test;

  • giving of false or misleading information during the registration, booking and payment processes;

  • giving of false or misleading information during the complaints and appeals processes;

  • giving of false or misleading information relating to test results during admissions processes.
