UCAT ANZ Mitigating Circumstances
Our admissions tests are a compulsory entry requirement for our consortium universities. However, we understand that some candidates will experience mitigating circumstances that may affect their ability to sit the test.
Illness or Personal Circumstances
The UCAT ANZ Consortium Examination Rules state that candidates who present themselves for their test are declaring themselves fit to sit the test.
If you fall ill or are aware of personal circumstances that you consider will affect your performance on the day, you should not sit the test - even if it is a difficult decision to make. This includes candidates who fall ill or experience issues on the day of their test.
If you are not fit to sit your test, you must reschedule your appointment to a later date, even if this means losing the test fee. Please refer to Rescheduling and Cancelling for information.
If you plan to take the test in the final week of testing you may encounter difficulties rescheduling within the testing window and may have to travel much further to sit the test at an available test centre. This is why we advise candidates to test early in the test cycle. If you are not fit to sit your test but choose to do so against this advice, we will not consider such issues as mitigating circumstances.
We never make an adjustment to a candidate's score to reflect temporary illness/injury or some other event outside of the candidate's control at the time of the test.
