UCAT Preparation During Summer Holidays

Important UCAT 2021 Dates

UCAT and Interview Preparation

If you are considering a career in medicine or dentistry, you will need to sit a compulsory entry exam known as the UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test) before you can apply for relevant placements in the aforementioned fields of study within most universities. 

Please note, that some pathways into medicine, dentistry, and clinical sciences may not require the UCAT ANZ. For details candidates should refer to the websites of the universities to which they intend to apply.

Universities and the UCAT Requirements


For those who will sit UCAT next year, consistent UCAT preparation during summer break is highly recommended as opposed to leaving it until the time when students need to devote their full attention and energy towards their Year 12 work.
