The UCAT ANZ 2021 preliminary test statistics have been published. This means you can finally gauge how well you have performed compared to other UCAT ANZ 2021 candidates.
Each UCAT ANZ section score ranges from 300 to 900 and the total cognitive score, which combines the scaled scores from the Verbal Reasoning, Decision Making, Quantitative Reasoning and Abstract Reasoning sections, ranges from 1200 to 3600.
For tests taken between 1 July and 11 August 2021, the mean total score of 11,041 candidates was 2538.
The table below shows the deciles for the total score:
This table can be used to work out how well you’ve performed in the UCAT ANZ 2021.
For example, if your total score is 2960 or higher, you will be placed in the 9th decile (= 90th percentile), meaning you are in the top 10% of all candidates.
If your total score is 2890, you will be in the 8th decile, with your percentile score likely to be around the 85th percentile mark.
The mean SJT score was 581 and the preliminary decile cut-offs are presented in the table below:
Compared to 2020, the mean total score has increased slightly from 2527 to 2538 and the 9th decile cut-off for the total score has jumped from 2920 to 2960.
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 have a very high ATAR or are applying from a rural or Indigenous background.
UCAT ANZ will publish updated statistics in mid-September that includes the results of tests taken up to 5 September. You’ll then be able to find out your exact percentile score. They do not expect the final figures to differ much from the preliminary statistics.
