The UCAT ANZ Begins in One Week: Essential Things For You To Check

UCAT Information


The UCAT ANZ begins on 1st July 2020. We thought it would be timely to go over essential things you should note for your UCAT ANZ to avoid any unwanted surprises on the test day.

What Do I Need to Take to My UCAT ANZ?

You must take a photographic ID and a copy (printed or electronic) of your appointment confirmation email from Pearson VUE.

Your photographic ID must be original (i.e. not digital or photocopy), valid (i.e. unexpired) and match your name and date of birth provided during registration. The following IDs are acceptable:

  • Passport
  • Driver’s license
  • Australian Keypass Card
  • Australian Proof of Age Card
  • New Zealand 18+ / Kiwi Access Card

Please note that student ID, employer ID and bus/train/library cards will not be accepted.

Bringing a face mask and gloves is optional for candidates sitting the UCAT ANZ in Australia or New Zealand, but some overseas test centres may require you to wear a face mask during the test. Also, face masks are now mandatory for candidates taking the UCAT ANZ at the Airport West and Footscray test centres.

What Else Can I Take?

You can bring comfort aids such as medicines, medical devices and mobility devices without any pre-approval. The full list of comfort aids can be found here

Relevant candidates should also check the access arrangements page again for details.

Please note that you will be provided with a physical note board and a marker pen. You can also request for an earplug at the test centre.

Check Your Test Time and Location Again

It would’ve been a while since you’ve registered for the UCAT ANZ. It is also possible that you’ve rescheduled your test due to COVID-19 or other reasons. Don’t rely on old diary entries or notes and double check your test date, time and location through the Pearson VUE website.

You must arrive at the test centre at least half an hour before your test. We advise that you allow extra time for travel in case of traffic congestions or other unexpected events during your journey.

What If I Need To Reschedule?

If you are ill or have personal circumstances that may impact your performance, you can reschedule your test by ringing the Pearson VUE Customer Services. This must be done at least 24 hours before your scheduled test time and is subject to availability. Refer to the official UCAT ANZ website for further details.

Anything Else to Note?

Make sure to arrive at your test centre at least 30 minutes before your appointment time.

Don’t eat or drink too much leading up to the test and go to the bathroom before starting your test. Remember, you can have toilet breaks during the UCAT ANZ but the timer will continue to tick, so don’t waste valuable time with toilet breaks.

Depending on your test date, you have between one to four weeks to prepare for the UCAT ANZ. This is still plenty of time to pack in extra revisions and mock exams, so keep calm and carry on.
