As you probably know ACER has changed the format of the UMAT test for 2013.
It will no longer be three separate sections each with their own time limit. Sections 1, 2 and 3 type questions will now all be mixed up together in one big exam of 134 questions and 3 hours duration.
It would be a good idea to start practising with such type of questions, because that is exactly what you will now have to do in the UMAT test. The most efficient and effective approach to use in tackling such questions will also be discussed during the UMAT courses.
One way of getting in some practice is to get the MedEntry free half-length practice exam.
It is high quality questions in the style of the UMAT, and is a blend of the three question types just like the new format that ACER will now use.
You can print off this half exam, share it amongst your friends, and practice in your own time anywhere – no computer needed. Challenge your friends and see who needs to knuckle down!
This Exam has high quality questions, answers and fully worked solutions, and there is plenty more of these on the MedEntry Learning Management System (LMS).
Go to the MedEntry website (www.MedEntry.edu.au) and you’ll find this exam under the “Resources” tab.
Good luck to all you future medicos!
