Here, we present five top tips for getting yourself fully prepared for UCAT ANZ.
"Know Thy Enemy" is a classic line from Sun Tzu's The Art of War. While the UCAT ANZ is not exactly a war in a traditional sense, there is no doubt that it is an intense and high-stake test.
Even before you start preparing for the UCAT ANZ, you should be asking yourself several fundamental questions. How long is the UCAT ANZ? What do different sections seek to test? What types of questions are there in each section? What official resources are available? How much time do I have per question?
Planning a solid revision schedule for yourself is a great idea and can really make a difference to how well you perform on the day of the test. It organises you to make the most out of your time, helps to keep you on track, breaks down revision into more manageable parts, and reminds you of important dates.
Just don’t forget to schedule in some breaks so that you don’t burn out before the actual UCAT ANZ.
Read the Good Medical Practice: a code of conduct for doctors in Australia, published by the Medical Board of Australia and Good Medical Practice, published by the Medical Council of New Zealand. They inform you about what it means to be a good medical doctor and provide guidelines on how doctors should act and respond in different scenarios. Although the UCAT ANZ is an 'aptitude test', reading these guides will immensely help you with answering Situational Judgement Test section questions in the UCAT ANZ.
As a bonus, they provide insights and information about the career you have chosen to follow and gives you a head start on preparing for medical school interviews.
