What is UCAT?

What is UCAT?

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) ANZ is an admissions test for entry into undergraduate medical, dental, and clinical science degrees in Australian and New Zealand.  The test is used by a consortium of universities as a means of standardising access to their programs.

The UCAT ANZ is adapted from the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) which is used in the United Kingdom for the same purposes as UCAT. For 2019, the UCAT replaced the previously used UMAT exam in Australian and New Zealand.

Along with the student's grades from secondary school and performance in the medicine entry interview, UCAT ANZ is used to rank students for entry into undergraduate programs. Students sit the UCAT ANZ in the same year that they apply to university. The test can only be sat once per year.

UCAT Sections

The UCAT ANZ  is a multiple-choice exam. It is is split into the following sections which aim to assess a range of mental abilities:

  • Verbal Reasoning: Assesses ability to critically evaluate information that is presented in a written form
  • Decision Making: Assesses ability to apply logic to reach a decision or conclusion, evaluate arguments & analyse statistical information
  • Quantitative Reasoning: Assesses ability to critically evaluate information presented in a numerical form
  • Abstract Reasoning: Assesses the use of convergent and divergent thinking to infer relationships from information
  • Situational Judgement: Measures capacity to understand real world situations and to identify critical factors & appropriate behaviour in dealing with them

Though there is no specific curriculum for the UCAT ANZ, the innate skills assessed can be developed and improved via quality practice.
