How To Use The Keyboard In The UCAT ANZ

UCAT Information


With the UCAT ANZ being extremely time pressured, we thought we would lend you a hand by giving you 5 easy shortcuts to effectively make full use of all that exam time; knowing keyboard shortcuts can help minimise the time you waste using a mouse.


Alt+P to return to a previous UCAT ANZ question:

Need to return to a previous page? Use this shortcut to go back and change an answer, which is allowed.

Alt+N to quickly move onto the next UCAT ANZ question:

Finished a question or want to skip to the next? Use this to quickly move forward from question to question but remember to answer any skipped questions; it may be best to flag questions like these. Continue reading to find out how to flag a question.

Alt+F to flag a UCAT ANZ question for later:

Want to answer a question later and be able to quickly find it? Use this to flag the question; the flag icon at the top of the page will change colour when you flag the question and when the time comes to actually answering them, select “Review Flagged” to review only the questions you flagged. Reviewing these flagged questions can be extremely useful in checking your answers and picking up marks if you have time left over at the end of a section.

Alt+C for the online UCAT ANZ calculator:

Need a calculator? Actually you just might do for the Quantitative Reasoning section; use this shortcut to pop-up the on-screen calculator. The model is based on a T1-108 calculator, consisting of a number pad allowing for functions such as division, multiplication, addition, subtraction and square roots. It can store 1 number in its memory too, just press M+ to add a number, M- to remove it and MRC to recall it. You can use a mouse to use this calculator, but it is useful to know how to use it with the keyboard and is a lot quickier depending on how practised you are.

Still unsure about that UCAT ANZ online calculator?

  • Use number keys to enter numbers

  • You can respectively use (+,-,*,/) for Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division.
