UCAT ANZ Adviser Resources
Schools and Colleges can access these resources for advising prospective test takers about the UCAT.
Please note, although new to Australia and New Zealand for 2019, the UCAT has been used for over 12 years in the UK under the test name UKCAT. The following preparation materials, although referred to as UKCAT represent the exact content of the UCAT ANZ test and may be used to familiarise your students with the test format and to help prepare for the test. These preparation materials will be re-published in January 2019 to reflect the new international test name of UCAT.
You are welcome to download and use our PowerPoint presentation to give students an overview of the UCAT ANZ.

Commercial Preparation Materials
Careers Advisers should be aware that whilst there are many commercial companies publishing books and offering coaching for our tests, the UCAT ANZ Consortium does not work with any of these companies or endorse the use of their materials. Taking advantage of these opportunities can cost candidates a great deal of money and we would advise them to be sceptical about claims they can help students do well in the test by coaching.
Commercial organisations will be using items that are not necessarily of the standard they will encounter in the UCAT and this may distort their performance whilst practising. Screen views may be different and commercial organisations are unlikely to include the new item types which they may encounter in their test. They may also not replicate the UCAT scoring accurately and may give misleading indicators of candidates anticipated UCAT scores.
We therefore strongly advise candidates to use the official Practices Tests and Question Banks on our website, and to be cautious about using resources from any commercial providers as these are not affiliated with UCAT in any way.
