admissions_414075982720x480

With the UCAT testing period underway, many students who have sat UCAT are wondering how UCAT will be used to select applicants into medical school.

Most universities use a combination of three factors when selecting students into medicine or dentistry. These include:

  1. UCAT ANZ scores (either cognitive subtests* only, or all UCAT subtests)
  2. Medical interview performance
  3. Secondary school performance (ATAR / IB) or GPA

*UCAT cognitive subtests include UCAT Verbal Reasoning, UCAT Decision Making, UCAT Quantitative Reasoning and UCAT Abstract Reasoning

Each university is different, and some universities change their medical entry requirements at short notice.
