UMAT 2019: Key dates and what should I do now?

What is UMAT?

UMAT is the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test.

If you wish to study medicine or dentistry at most universities in Australia or New Zealand, you must sit UMAT and perform well.

UMAT is a three hour long test composed solely of multiple choice questions. Questions come from three key constructs:

  • Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving
  • Understanding People
  • Non-Verbal Reasoning

UMAT is a skills based test and is not like the knowledge based exams of school or university. UMAT is a very difficult test that even high performing students find challenging. However, with quality preparation and the right approach, you can succeed in UMAT.  

Key dates for UMAT

  • UMAT will take place on 31 July 2019
  • Registrations to sit UMAT will open in early December 2018 and close on 1st June 2019
  • UMAT results will be released in September 2019
  • Students must apply to various university admission bodies by the end of September 2019
  • Medical interview offers will be released from mid-October onwards (dates vary depending on the university)

Please note that the above dates are tentative and will be confirmed by ACER later this year.
