The UCAT ANZ (University Clinical Aptitude Test for Australia and New Zealand) is developed for medical, dental and clinical science degree programmes admission in Australia and New Zealand. It is an aptitude test to compliment your academic results.

A few things to note:

  • The UCAT ANZ is very similar to the regular UCAT, except for the scoring of the Situational Judgement section.
  • The test is only applicable to Australian citizens, permanent residents or New Zealand citizens
  • International applicants applying to ANZ universities are not required to take the UCAT ANZ, instead, ISAT may be required
  • The UCAT ANZ test has replaced the UMAT from 2019
  • Test MUST be taken the same year that you apply to the university
