Keeping The Balance

Keeping the balance is something we all struggle with in our final year of schooling, myself included. At the commencement of the year, I jumped into everything. Then, at the end of term one, I crashed, and in term two I tried to do nothing. Neither of these worked for me, and over the remainder of the year I learnt some important lessons about keeping the balance. Not only was I happier and more well-rounded as a result, I was also able to succeed in both UCAT and in my final exams.   The golden rule for staying well-rounded is that...

Persisting Through Underwhelming Marks

Disappointed with your scores? Vinay scored 100th percentile in UMAT and in this video, he shares his tips for persisting through underwhelming marks.  

5 steps to balancing UMAT: the extra subject

Year 12 is a busy year – we all know that. However, it can get a whole lot busier if you’re studying for the UMAT as well. It can be like taking an extra subject – one that has no teacher, and there are no deadlines (aside from the exam). In addition, it is an exam for which you cannot cram (sorry to burst your bubble). So how do you manage the meticulous balancing act between not letting your school grades drop, whilst also keeping yourselves in good stead for the UMAT? Planning. Yes, you’ve probably heard it all before, but...

UMAT: WHY PRACTICE DOESN’T NECESSARILY MAKE PERFECT

  In life, we are told that ‘practice makes perfect’. The more you practice a particular skill, whether it be playing the piano, swimming or writing essays, the better you become at it. So, in theory, it should be the same in UMAT – the more practice questions you do, the better you are at UMAT – right? Not necessarily. Just like any skill, to do well in UMAT you first need a basic understanding of what it is, what it tests and how to approach the various types of questions. Without this understanding, you may still be able to improve...

Why practice exams are the best UMAT preparation

Be under no illusions: the UMAT is the single hardest and most important test you will ever sit. This is a scary (and for some maybe terrifying) thought. So what can you do to make it less daunting? The answer may seem counter-intuitive: the best way to make UMAT seem do-able is to face it over, and over, and over again. How? By completing high quality, full length trial exams under timed conditions. UMAT is scary because it is so different to any other test you have done in school – it is much harder, much longer and much more time-pressured,...

Managing UMAT with other commitments

As many of you would have noticed, UMAT preparation takes time. And I mean a LOT of time! It’s often overwhelming trying to get those practice exams you’d promised yourself to get done as well as study for that first chemistry quiz if you’re in Year 12 or dealing with a cranky boss at work.    In many cases, students often lose time, confidence and their interest in UMAT since it simply adds to their already overwhelming workload. So before you start stressing about the UMAT exam, let’s just take a quick look at how you can manage studying for the...

How to Stay Organised at School/University (and Life in General)

Year 12 is a juggling act between all-important tests and exams with your other commitments, be it sport, music or a part-time job.

Well, once you leave Year 12, you may find the added pressures of medical school can be overwhelming at times!

Set your mind on your mindset

Preparation is key for any exam, and UMAT preparation is no different. But we’ve all had that horrible experience when the nerves hit, and all that preparation is thrown out the window because your brain is more interested in stressing itself out than answering the exam questions. But you can, of course, prepare for that too. 1.    Practice Since I’m supposed to be telling you what to do when it feels like preparation isn’t working, you might not expect a synonym for “preparation” to be the top tip. But it is, so hear me out. Nothing is as reassuring as...

Maximise each UMAT practice question (and your study time!)

So you’ve decided to spend x hours per week preparing for the UMAT. Well done on making a commitment! But it doesn’t end there. The next step is to squeeze as much as you can get out of those UMAT preparation hours. One way of doing this and making the questions work for you is to carefully review solutions. When going through UMAT practice questions, it’s very tempting to avoid reading the solutions for one reason or another. As someone who achieved 100th percentile in the UMAT, I’ll try to make a case for reading the solutions all the time.  ...

Improving your UMAT skills in Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving / Section 1

Rather than assessing your knowledge, the UMAT is an exam which isolates certain deductive skills that will be important in work as a doctor and requires you to apply them in various scenarios. Therefore, if you wish to succeed in the UMAT, you will need to nurture these skills, sharpen them and know exactly when to use them. If your eager mind has begun this uphill climb towards UMAT success and if you have thoroughly scoured the LMS and still seek ways to better your logical reasoning, this guide will show you how.   Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving questions in...

Planning time for UMAT preparation

A very common question asked by aspiring medical students is “ How do you balance your school work and UMAT practice?” Given that the UMAT can be equally or even more important as the ATAR in the medical school selection process, it is crucial that students devote sufficient time in preparing for the UMAT, without neglecting their year 12 studies. The key to finding this balance is planning your time. Many students attempt to fit in UMAT study in their ‘spare time’, which is hard to find in year 12. It is more productive to set aside blocks of time which...
