How is the UCAT ANZ Score Generated?



Handed your application in? Been invited for interviews? Now have to sit the UCAT ANZ? Don't understand the scoring? Stressing? Don't worry, Medify has got this all covered.

UCAT stands for: The University Clinical Aptitude Test, used by most medical schools assessing prospective candidates for suitability in admissioning into studying medicine and dentistry.

The scaled scores, within the first four sections, range from 300 to 900, as the higher the performance, the greater the score and for Situational Judgement, the candidate's performance is separated into four bands: Band 1 is the highest and Band 4 is the lowest. However, the ratings do not directly correspond to raw marks. Therefore, the average of the first four sections and the band for Situational Judgement will be used by medical and dentistry schools for the selection process.

Average Total Scores for UKCAT 2017-2018:

IMPORTANT Points You Should Know:

Stay the same:

Questions asked later on in the exam do NOT change depending on your previous answers.

No pit stops:

There will be NO rest breaks in between questions. If you wish to go to the toilet you can do so but the exam will continue without you and you will lose valuable answering time.

Good news:

You can return to previous questions, alter your answers and flag them, so it will be easier to find and review them.

More good news:

You CANNOT get negative marks for incorrect answers so never leave questions unanswered, as even guessing might give you a few more marks.

Even more good news:

All questions within a given sub-test are awarded equal marks. However, it is possible to achieve partial marks in certain questions in Situational Judgement and Decision Making if the given answer is partially correct.
