Staying in control during the UMAT

Below are a few useful tips as to how to stay in control during the UMAT. 


  • One of the things you'll probably have to deal with during the UMAT is distractions. This may be someone sniffling, or coughing, or tapping a pencil. In fact there have even been stories of distractions ranging from pile drivers at a nearby construction site to the school's symphonic band practicing outside! 
  • The most important thing is to not let these distractions get to you, use them as a reminder to get back to the UMAT in front of you. 

Keep moving while the clock is ticking: 

  • Don't count on the supervisor being accurate or consistent about writing up the time remaining during the UMAT. You should monitor your time continually as you work through the UMAT exam. 
  • To avoid time warps and spacing out during the UMAT, keep your pencil moving every few seconds, marking up your UMAT test booklet. Don't ever let you pencil lift more than a few centimetres off the page - keep it poised to mark up questions. 
  • Try not to spend forever filling in the bubbles on the UMAT answer sheet. It's not uncommon to see a student in the exam room artistically darkening a bubble for 10-15 seconds. That is a total of 3 minutes wasted on the entire UMAT! 
  • Use absolutely every second available during the UMAT to work on the questions. Don't stop until the supervisor says stop!
