What is UCAT ANZ?

UCAT ANZ (University Clinical Aptitude Test) is a test for admission to medical, dental and clinical science degree programmes in universities in Australia and New Zealand. The UCAT ANZ replaced the UMAT (Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test) in 2019.

Medical Universities in Australia and New Zealand consider the UCAT ANZ Score to admit candidates for medicine/dentistry/clinical sciences programmes in their universities.

The UCAT ANZ test analyses the applicant’s professional and behavioural traits that are required for new doctors and dentists to succeed in their clinical careers. It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as interviews and academic qualifications.
