What are UCAT ANZ access arrangements?

If you’re a student with any disabilities, medical conditions, special educational needs or temporary injuries, you’ll want the reassurance that you can take the test comfortably. You’ll be pleased to discover that UCAT ANZ is committed to ensuring everything runs as smoothly for you as possible.

Access arrangement can include four different versions of the test:

  • UCATSEN: You get 25% extra test time
  • UCATSA: You get five minutes of rest break before each section
  • UCATSENSA: You get 25% extra test time and five minutes of rest break before each section

Special arrangements can be made for a separate testing room and access to medical items or food/drink items that are not included in the UCAT ANZ Comfort Aid List (you should check out these items that do not need pre-approval first). 

All your access arrangements must be planned, with UCAT ANZ requiring that you apply for approval before you book a test. Be aware that testing without access arrangements in place will not be accepted as a mitigating circumstance.

Think carefully about your abilities before the test and factor this into your UCAT preparation schedule.
