Preliminary UCAT ANZ 2021 Test Statistics Released!


UCAT ANZ 2021 preliminary statistics have been released, which will help students to interpret their UCAT 2021 scores.

The majority of UCAT candidates have sat their 2021 UCAT test, so it is expected that the final UCAT summary statistics will not be very different from these figures.

The UCAT 2021 preliminary statistics data is available at:

This UCAT data shows that:

  • Students who achieved an overall scaled score of 2960 were in the 90th percentile, which is generally required for entry into standard undergraduate medical degrees (UCAT scores required are lower for dentistry, rural students, local students, bonded students and those with very high ATARs)
  • The UCAT total cognitive scaled score required to be in the 90th percentile has been gradually increasing:
    • In 2019, you needed 2850 to achieve 90th percentile
    • In 2020, you needed 2920 to achieve 90th percentile
    • In 2021, you needed 2960 to achieve 90th percentile

This is because medicine is getting more competitive every year, and also reflects the greater preparation by the cohort of UCAT students each year.

  • The median scores have not changed as much over the past three years (2470, 2520, 2520). This implies that it is getting more competitive at the top end of UCAT scores: this is where the action happens (that is, interview offers are made to this cohort of students)
  • Both the median and 90th percentile scores for UCAT Situational Judgement have fallen marginally (between 2020 and 2021). This implies that students are not spending as much time preparing for UCAT Situational Judgement, since some universities do not consider it in selection
  • Compared to 2020, the UCAT scores required to obtain 90th percentile has increased for UCAT Verbal Reasoning (670 vs 680) and UCAT Abstract Reasoning (770 vs 800). It has remained the same for UCAT Quantitative Reasoning and it fell slightly for UCAT Decision Making (750 vs 740). This is likely to be the result of students' relative effort put into each of these UCAT subtests during their preparation, and also the fact that these UCAT statistics are interim statistics.
  • The mean UCAT ANZ 2021 scaled score (total of the cognitive subtests) was 2520
  • The mean UCAT Situational Judgement score was 592 and a score of 670 equated to the 90th percentile

MedEntry has developed a UCAT score percentile calculator that will help you to convert your 2021 UCAT scaled scores into an estimated percentile ranking. You can find it here:

An update to this information will be provided in mid-September to show UCAT performance statistics to 5th September.

Final statistics relating to performance in UCAT ANZ 2021 is likely to be released in late September / early October.
