What do I do after I have booked my UCAT ANZ?

UCAT ANZ Exam

2020-03-18

Yes, it is finally here! Booking for the UCAT ANZ 2020 opened on 2nd March. If you haven’t registered yet, you can do so through the UCAT ANZ official website, bearing in mind that the booking will close on 11th May.

After you’ve registered, you may feel like having ample time to prepare for your UCAT ANZ exam in July. However, those four to five months will pass quickly before you know it! Here, to get you started immediately, we present (in no particular order) 5 Top Tips for getting yourself fully prepared to successfully complete your UCAT ANZ and gain entry into your chosen medical or dental school.

Familiarize yourself with the 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? 

If you haven’t already, you should definitely check out the 2020 UCAT ANZ Official Guide and get to know this inside and out.

Design a UCAT ANZ revision timetable:

Planning a solid revision schedule for yourself is an unquestionably 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.

Reading is UCAT ANZ knowledge:

Read the “Good Medical Practice: A Code of Conduct for Doctors in Australia” by the Medical Board of Australia or the “Good Medical Practice” by the Medical Council of New Zealand. They inform you about the different duties of healthcare professionals and how they should act and respond to 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, these guides provide insights and information about the career you have chosen to follow and give you a head start on preparing for medical school interviews.

You should also check out the rest of our blog here where we have posts covering every aspect of the UCAT ANZ with revision tips, handy hints and full guides to every bit of information you will ever need to successfully get you through your UCAT ANZ. 

UCAT ANZ posters and post-it notes:

Making posters of key points for each section of the UCAT ANZ and displaying them where you can see them everyday, can really aid with memory and getting to grips with what you need to remember. Post it notes are great as reminders on your noticeboard of keywords and any parts of your revision you feel needs closer attention.
