COVID-19 and UCAT 2020: What Should I Do?

covid-19__ucat

With the COVID-19 pandemic and rapid escalation of cases across Australia and New Zealand, you may be wondering how this affects UCAT ANZ 2020 and your UCAT preparation. This blog answers some frequently asked questions. 

Will UCAT ANZ 2020 be going ahead?

At this stage, it is unclear whether UCAT ANZ 2020 will be proceeding as planned in July, given the evolving situation.

UCAT UK (which is administered by Pearson VUE and the UCAT UK Consortium) has made the decision to postpone UCAT UK registrations for students in the United Kingdom, and acknowledged that testing for UCAT UK is likely to take place later than originally planned: https://www.ucat.ac.uk/ucat/registration-booking/covid-19/

Our information sources from the UCAT ANZ Consortium suggest that final decisions on the conduct of UCAT ANZ 2020 will be made in June, and Pearson VUE will communicate with all candidates at that time.

As the situation is changing rapidly, you can find updates on https://home.pearsonvue.com/coronavirus-update and on the UCAT ANZ Official website: https://www.ucat.edu.au

MedEntry will also be providing updates to all our students.

Should I continue with my UCAT Preparation?

Yes! We advise students to continue with their UCAT preparation. UCAT may be postponed, but it will not be eliminated as part of medical entry requirements.  It is still possible that UCAT ANZ 2020 will proceed in July, and students will need to be well prepared for this difficult and competitive exam. If not, UCAT will take place at a later date. Furthermore, UCAT skills need to be developed over time, so the preparation you do now will be important. 

MedEntry has adopted various measures to ensure that students are provided with the highest quality UCAT preparation in the midst of the COVID-19 epidemic. This involves:

  • Maintaining and extending our online UCAT resources, to provide comprehensive and effective UCAT preparation
  • Running some UCAT workshops online to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students
  • Continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation and providing regular updates

What else should I do?

This year is already a challenging and difficult one, without the added stress of a worldwide pandemic. It is very important that you look after your physical, mental and emotional health.

This includes minimising your chances of contracting COVID-19 by:

  • Keeping your distance from others
  • Washing your hands frequently
  • Seeking advice if you become unwell or have come in contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19

It also includes:

  • Staying in touch with friends and family (via virtual means if necessary)
  • Eating well, sleeping well and exercising safely and regularly
  • Speaking to someone if you are feeling down or overwhelmed

We understand this is a stressful, difficult and uncertain time for our students. If you are in need of help or support, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
