Quick Guide Through The Day of Your UCAT ANZ

UCAT Information


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

  1. 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.
  2. 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

  1. 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. 
  2. You will be asked to sign a signature pad and take a photograph.
  3. You will be given spiral bound laminated sheets and a black marker pen. You may request for earplugs if you wish.
  4. 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.
  5. Before you enter the examination room, go to the toilet if you need to.
  6. 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).
  7. 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.
  8. When you sit down, you should adjust the position of the keyboard to make sure you can take the UCAT ANZ comfortably.
  9. Take some time to prepare yourself and relax. Your 2 hours have not yet started.

Sitting the UCAT ANZ

  1. Once you are ready, follow instructions on-screen.
  2. Your exam will be in the following order:
  • Verbal Reasoning
  • Decision Making
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Abstract Reasoning
  • Situational Judgement.
  1. You will have 1 minute before each section to read the instructions. You can skip it, but this will not give you an extra minute to answer the questions. Use this time to give your mind a quick break.
  2. During the exam, if you have any issues, such as requiring a toilet break, you can quietly raise your hand. However, it is important to note your time will continue running.
  3. After your exam, there may be an opportunity to answer a short optional survey on UCAT ANZ preparation and the quality of the venue.
  4. When finished, you can raise your hand, and the examiner will guide you out of the exam room. You need to return your laminated board and marker pen.
  5. Collect your belongings and leave the test centre.
  6. Your UCAT ANZ results will be emailed to you shortly (usually between 30 minutes and 1 hour). All results will be delivered to UCAT ANZ Consortium universities automatically.
  7. If you’ve achieved the scores that you desire, well done.
  8. 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.
