How to Interpret Scores and Feedback from MedEntry’s Practice Exams

So you’ve completed a practice exam and have no idea how to interpret the wealth of information and statistics you’ve been presented with. This blog has some tips to help you gain a better grasp of your UMAT preparation progress.   1. Look at percentile not percentage . The UMAT is a test designed to compare students against each other, thereby giving the universities a clearer indication of the stronger candidates. This is much like the ATAR.

Balancing the UMAT and Hobbies

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 UMAT and in my final exams.     The golden rule for staying well-rounded...

UMAT Books

Have you ever thought about  using books to prepare for the UMAT?   Before you go and spend your money on UMAT books there are a few things worth considering:   Unlike online materials which can be regularly updated, the publisher of such books is unable to amend them in keeping with the frequent changes that do occur in the UMAT. There is no way of seeing other reader reviews of such publications, so how will you know what your peers think of them? Is the author well versed in all facets of the UMAT and how much experience do...

Improving your Critical Thinking Skills

  Everyone has their own concept of the world, of how they interpret and predict stimuli. This “concept” is underpinned by their philosophical approach to life. Whilst philosophy may seem to be a branch of knowledge best left for academics, the truth is we all utilize some form of it. It surprises some people when they are told they use philosophy in just about everything they do – even science. The way we gain knowledge and enquire about it is greatly impacted by how we view the world. In the UMAT, you will encounter questions that require you to evaluate...

Should I do a UMAT preparation course?

You wouldn’t run a race without a coach. You wouldn’t sit your final exams without a teacher. So why would you sit the UMAT without having done some preparation first?
