Knowing exactly what to expect on the exam day can boost your overall performance and aid in managing your nerves. Here's your Medify's step-by-step guide to what will happen on the day of your UCAT ANZ.
Before Leaving Your Home
Before you head off to your test centre, double check that you have your photographic ID, a confirmation of your appointment (printed or electronic), comfort aids, any other pre-approved items and instructions on getting to your test centre. You do not need to take any stationery, as everything you need will be provided for you at the test centre.
Leave early to give yourself plenty of time to get to the test centre. You should aim to arrive at least 30 minutes before your appointment time.
At the Test Centre
Social distancing may or may not be maintained, depending on the location of your test centre. Comply with all instructions.
At the registration desk, you will be asked to show a valid photographic ID and a printed/electronic copy of your confirmation email from Pearson VUE.
You will be asked to sign a signature pad and take a photograph.
You will be given spiral bound laminated sheets and a black marker pen. You may request for earplugs if you wish.
You will be provided with a locker or a coat hanger to place your personal belongings. Make sure you do not take anything other than your ID into the examination room.
Before you enter the examination room, go to the toilet if you need to.
Once the staff have prepared your exam, you may enter the exam room. You may be asked to undergo a body check (e.g. turning up your pockets and rolling your sleeves).
The staff will guide you to the seat, or you may be able to choose your desk. Depending on the test centre, there may be other people taking different exams on the venue’s computers, so make sure you are very quiet.
When you sit down, you should adjust the position of the keyboard to make sure you can take the UCAT ANZ comfortably.
Take some time to prepare yourself and relax. Your 2 hours have not yet started.
If you’ve achieved the scores that you desire, well done.
Even if you have not achieved the scores you wanted, still congratulate yourself for getting through a really hard process. You have done well. Plus you can always take it again next year; do not give up on your dream.
