Take a look at our guide to the differences between UMAT and UCAT ANZ.

How Should I Prepare For UCAT ANZ?

There are many different ways to prepare for the UCAT ANZ. Some students prefer to complete practice UCAT questions section by section – or some prefer to try questions across all sections to find which ones they struggle with.

Most students find it useful to attend a UCAT Course to learn techniques for each section of the test, and then apply these in their own preparation.

Take a look at all of our UCAT preparation.

Do I Get Extra Time If I’m Dyslexic?

Yes – if you’re dyslexic you do get extra time in the UCAT ANZ.

The UCAT ANZ Special Educational Needs (UCATSEN) is 25% longer than the standard UCAT ANZ and that candidates with dyslexia, dyspraxia, dysgraphia, dysorthographia, attention deficit disorder or working memory deficit should book this version of the test.

Can I Resit UCAT ANZ?

Unfortunately, you can only sit the UCAT ANZ once per year. This means that if you didn’t score as highly as you’d have liked, you can’t resit the exam – you’ll need to sit the test the following year and reapply.
