If you are applying to UCAT ANZ Consortium universities in Australia and New Zealand you should ensure that you register for and book the ANZ (Australia and New Zealand) version of UCAT test – known as the UCAT ANZ or UCATSEN ANZ. UCAT ANZ testing takes place between 1 July and 31 July 2019. You must complete a two-step process using the Pearson VUE online registration system to register and then book a test.
It is also worth noting that school holidays in Australia and university breaks in New Zealand occur in the first half of July. We recommend that you use these times to sit the test to give greater flexibility and to reduce stress.
Step 1: Online Account Registration
Registration opens: 1 March at 9am
Registration closes: 16 May at 5pm AEST
You must create an online account with Pearson VUE before you can book your test. You need to register for your test personally – this cannot be done by a school/college. You should only create one account as multiple accounts are not permitted.
You must register with your legal name exactly as it appears on the photo identification you will present at the test centre. If there is not an exact match, you will not be able to take your test and you will not be reimbursed for any fees paid.
Step 2: Booking a Test
Booking opens: 1 March at 9am
Booking closes: 17 May at 5pm AEST
When the registration process is complete you will be sent an email containing a password which will allow you to log-in to your Pearson VUE account to book your test. The test fee is payable at the time of booking by major credit card (Visa, Mastercard or Visa debit card). Booking closes at 5pm AEST on Friday 17th May 2019. There are no exceptions to this deadline.
You should book a standard test (UCAT ANZ) unless you are eligible for extra time. Please see the section on Access Arrangements for more information. It is your responsibility to book the correct test.
Candidates with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries may be entitled to extra time or accommodations when sitting the test, however applications for these arrangements must be accompanied by suitable official documentation and be approved in advance by the UCAT ANZ office.
The deadline for submitting the online application form for Access Arrangements is 10 May 2019 at 5pm AEST.
UCATSEN ANZ - 25% extra time
If you are entitled to extra time for public examinations you should sit the UCATSEN ANZ. Sitting this extended version of the test requires you to submit an application for special testing conditions before you make your test booking.
The steps in the special access arrangements process are:
Step 1 - Create your online account and register for the UCAT.
Step 2 - Complete the online Access Arrangements application form and submit it to the UCAT ANZ office with relevant documentation from a registered health practitioner / psychologist (see application form for full details).
Step 3 - Make your test booking after you have received approval from the UCAT ANZ office.
Further details on Access Arrangements and other available Test Accommodations available will be published in early 2019.
