UCAT ANZ statement
The UCAT ANZ Consortium released their most recent statement on the week commencing the 24thof March. As it stands the test will go ahead as planned for 2020.
But there is difficulty in predicting whether or not the testing centres in Australia, New Zealand and internationally will be open as normal. Therefore, it is possible that the timeline for testing will be shifted from those that are normally used.
Registration and booking are open as normal, and candidates are encouraged to proceed under the normal timeline. The booking timeline is displayed below.
Any decision that is made, will be made in consultation with the UCAT ANZ Consortium of medical and dental school. And this decision will be to all candidates. So, it shall not impact your application for entry to University in 2021. The full statement can be found on their website: https://www.ucat.edu.au/ucat-anz/registration-booking/covid-19/
