Getting into Medicine:
UCAT is one of three criteria used by most Australian and NZ universities in selecting students into high demand health related careers such as medicine and dentistry:
1. UCAT (University Clinical Aptitude Test)
2. ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank)
3. Interview performance (Panel or MMI)
The above three criteria are weighted equally by most universities.
Most countries in the world have three such criteria which need to be met to be accepted into medical school: Academic performance in school/university; a generic skills test (UCAT, MCAT, GAMSAT, UKCAT, BMAT etc); performance in an interview.
The UCAT is a two hour test. UCAT is administered in July. MedEntry offers UCAT Courses, UCAT Tuition, UCAT advice, UCAT preparation and UCAT Coaching.
MedEntry UCAT Prep has become synonymous with aptitude test success and is trusted by more students than all other providers combined. Performing well in the UCAT is critical for students wishing to enter medicine or other health science courses.
