How long is my UCAT ANZ score valid for?

Your UCAT ANZ score is valid for one year. If you sat the UCAT ANZ in 2020, it can only be used for admission to courses starting in 2021. 

You must take the UCAT ANZ in 2021 if you want to apply to a medical or dental programme starting in 2022.

Can I retake the UCAT ANZ?

Yes, you can retake the UCAT ANZ as many times as you want, but you can only take it once in a calendar year. 

How about the UCAT (UK)?

The UCAT (UK) and UCAT ANZ are two names for the same test and the UCAT ANZ can be used for admission to UK medical and dental schools

Therefore, you can only take one of UCAT or UCAT ANZ in a calendar year.

  • You will be more aware of your weaknesses and be able to focus your efforts.
  • You will be more familiar with the exam, reducing anxiety and stress.

With diligent preparation, you will have a good chance of significantly improving your UCAT ANZ score.
