2019-08-21

Your first course of action should be to celebrate, you have just sat the hardest exam there is and survived to tell the tale. Let us hear you say out loud “Well done, Me”. But now you're thinking 'what do my scores actually mean and what can I do with them?' Medify’s got this covered, just keep reading.

If you haven’t already converted your scores into a decile to find out what percentile you are in, visit our UCAT ANZ 2019 Interim Exam Statistics Are Here article before continuing to read below.

Overall Scores Above 2800

Candidates with this type of score are most likely to be offered interviews, especially if all other entry requirements are met, of which can be found on the course description displayed on your desired university website.

Just in case you still haven’t converted your scores, an overall score of or above 2800 is well placed into the 90th percentile which is required by most medical schools.

Medify’s Suggested Course of Action:

Apply Like Crazy:

Applying to all the universities you possibly can, across the whole country, maximises your opportunity of gaining interview offers.

Get Your Interview Prep on the Go:

Medical school interviews can be challenging; the more prepared you are, the better. The medical school interview is just as crucial, if not more so, than your UCAT ANZ percentile score, academic achievements and work experience put together. It takes time to perfect your interview skills and lots of practise. Do not leave it until the last minute to prepare; even choosing the correct outfit should take a considerable amount of time, consideration and effort.

Make the Grade:

Make sure to do your absolute best to gain the highest grade in your ATAR. Combine this with a great UCAT ANZ percentile, amazing academic achievement and an unforgettable interview performance, you will be swamped with medical school place offers.

Overall Scores Below 2800 But Above 2500

If you are a local applicant, rural applicant, an applicant expecting to gain an extremely high ATAR or an applicant of dentistry, with an overall UCAT ANZ score within this range, you are likely to be offered an interview. This, like the rest of the advice here, really depends on how your chosen universities actually uses your UCAT ANZ score.

Medify’s Suggested Course of Action:

Apply to Them All:

Applying to all the universities you possibly can, across the whole country, maximises your opportunity of gaining interview offers. Remember: The application season, mostly, closes in late September, so don’t leave it too late.

Aim High:

A high ATAR, may just push you across that acceptance line. Do your absolute best to achieve the highest ATAR you can. Combine this with an almost great UCAT ANZ percentile, amazing academic achievement and an unforgettable interview performance, you will be having to decide which medical school place offers you should decline and accept.

Be Ready:

Medical school interviews can be challenging; the more prepared you are, the better. The medical school interview is just as crucial, if not more so, than your UCAT ANZ percentile score, academic achievements and work experience put together. Perfecting your interview skills takes time and lots of practise, don’t leave it until the last minute to prepare, even choosing the correct outfit should take a considerable amount of time, consideration and effort.

Overall Scores Below 2500

A score below 2500 is classed as a lower than average score compared to the rest of the UCAT ANZ candidates who sat the UCAT ANZ the same year as you. The average UCAT ANZ 2019 score was calculated to be 2480, equating to a 50th percentile. With a score below 2500, you may not receive offers for medical school entry interviews.

Medify’s Suggested Course of Action:

Find Another Route:

Not all universities, such as James Cook University and Bond University, have the UCAT ANZ as an entry requirement; research these or other similar universities and apply to them.

Try Again

Resit the UCAT ANZ again next year; if you are really determined to get into that specific university but it demands a great UCAT ANZ score, keep trying until you achieve it. Our UCAT ANZ Online Course is perfect for practising, developing and improving your performance and it is never too early to start preparing for UCAT ANZ success.

Look for Possibilities:

Some universities that require you to take the UCAT ANZ but prefer you to achieve a higher score in your ATAR, such as the University of Sydney, may still offer you an interview. Have a research around and apply to them, but just make sure to gain an amazing ATAR.

Take a Different Perspective:

What other degrees do you like the sound of? Maybe you could graduate with a non-medical but science based undergraduate degree and then apply as a graduate which will require you to sit a different test called the GAMSAT. There is more than one way to get into medical school; have a look round at your options, you may be surprised and inspired to do something you have never thought of before.
