UCAT ANZ 2020 Preliminary Test Statistics

Each UCAT ANZ section score ranges from 300 to 900 and the total score, which combines the scaled scores from the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning sections, ranges from 1200 to 3600.

The table below shows the mean and deciles for each section and for the total score.

This table can be used to work out how well you performed in the UCAT ANZ 2020. For example, if your total score is 2920 or higher, you will be placed in the 9th decile, meaning you are in the top 10% of all candidates. If your total score is 2850, you will be in the 8th decile, with your percentile score likely to be around the 85th percentile mark.

What Does This Mean for Medical School Admissions?

Compared to 2019, the mean total score has increased significantly from 2481 to 2527 and the 9th decile cut-off for the total score has increased from 2850 to 2920. This means that a higher UCAT ANZ total score is required to achieve a high percentile required for entry to undergraduate medical programmes in Australia.

Usually, a UCAT ANZ score of 90th percentile is required for entry into medical programmes, unless you are have a very high ATAR or applying from a rural or Indigenous background.

When Will the Final Test Statistics Be Published?

The preliminary test statistics include data from all UCAT ANZ candidates, except ~150 students who will sit their exam in September 2020 due to COVID-19. The final test statistics will be published in September 2020. You will then be able to find out your exact percentile score.
