UMAT: 5 Tips for the Final Fortnight


UMAT is well and truly close now so it’s time to streamline your study and buckle down! Here are five ways to make sure you’re using the next fortnight effectively to set you up for success on UMAT day.

  1. Use your UMAT practice exams wisely

A practice exam is only a practice exam if you’re doing it in exam conditions. UMAT is a marathon and your MedEntry and ACER exams are your trial runs, so use them to recreate UMAT as much as you possibly can. UMAT isn’t just about the questions, it’s about building your stamina, working on your time management, and managing your crunch time stress. Lots of really clever people are brought down by the length of UMAT and burn out halfway through. Now is the time to make sure you’re still going strong when you get to question 134.

  1. Stop putting off your least favourite questions

No one likes doing things they’re not so great at but now is the time you really need to be focusing on those less strong areas and boosting them up as much as you can. MedEntry does a fantastic job of writing wonderful full explanations in the drills and exams. These are invaluable when working on those sections that aren’t as strong as your others.

  1. Study with friends

An hour studying with friends is worth 3 alone! Studying with friends will help you see new ways of answering and approaching questions and even help with time management. It’s almost like having your own team of tutors! Teaching others is also a really great way to learn yourself so even if you feel like you don’t need so much help with UMAT, helping out and teaching your friends is a great way to help you too.

  1. Work on your UMAT day game plan

Now is the time to start figuring out how you’re getting to the venue, where you’ll park, what you’re going to bring with you, if you’re going to wait with friends or by yourself, and all those sorts of things! If you live close enough to your venue it can be really beneficial to go to the venue and have a look around and work out exactly where it is you need to be.

  1. Take care of your whole self

You’re so close now! This would be the worst time to catch a cold or just start feeling generally under the weather physically or emotionally. You need to make sure you’re eating right, getting outside, and taking care of your mental health. When you’re studying so hard and under so much stress it can be easy to let aspects of your health slip, so right now it’s very important that you’re taking care of number one.
