What is UCAT?

ABOUT UCAT ANZ

UCAT stands for University Clinical Aptitude Test which has now replaced Australia’s UMAT exam. It is the same pre-medical test in the United Kingdom (UKCAT which has been changed to simply UCAT) which and for Australia and New Zealand (UCAT ANZ). 

The UCAT ANZ and UKCAT are two-hour computer-based tests which assesses a range of mental abilities identified by universities as important in the fields of medicine / dentistry / clinical sciences for students in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

UCAT consists of five separately timed subtests (as shown in the table below) which each contain a number of questions in a multiple-choice format as well as other formats such as true and false, multiple option answers and correctly ending answers. Once started the test cannot be paused for a break but before each subtest there is a timed instruction section.

Candidates either sit the standard test or an extended version of the test if they are entitled to extra time due to a documented medical condition or disability.
