The Night before the UMAT Test

<p The Night before the UMAT Test   It’s fine if you want to see a movie or hang out with your friends until the early evening, but then get home. Before you get too tired, lay out everything you’re going to need tomorrow morning: a photo ID, your digital watch, your pencils, maybe a sharpener and your water bottle. You will not be allowed to use scrap paper during the exam, so you won’t need to bring that. Set out the clothes you’ll wear for tomorrow, including any good luck items. It’s a good idea to dress in layers so...

The Day before the UMAT Test

The day before the UMAT   If you haven’t already, make sure you know the location of your test centre. If you don’t know how to get to the centre, print out directions from Google Maps. If you haven’t taken a test before at your test centre, ask around among the seniors you know or go and check it out before, to see whether there’s anything you need to know about the place. If someone is supposed to drive you to the test centre, make sure you have a back-up plan in case the person oversleeps, gets sick, or otherwise fails...

UMAT Preparation: Getting into the Right Frame of Mind

At the end of a season and leading up to the championship, athletes go through a “tapering phase” to make sure they perform at their peak when it counts. In a sense you’ve been a mental athlete, and you want to make sure that you perform at your peak when it counts: on the actual UMAT. For you, tapering consists of scaling back drastically the amount of preparation you’ve been doing so you can give your mind a chance to rest and rev up your motivation. During this week you should do much less work, but of a much higher quality....

Doesn’t the UMAT just measure “test-taking skills”?

Unfortunately, some UMAT prep courses try to convince students that taking the UMAT has noth­ing to do with real academic skills. They prefer you to believe that it’s all about their test-taking “secrets.” This is great marketing for them, but little help for you. Although there are a few basic test-taking skills that you should know about—process of elimina­tion, intelligent guessing and checking, testing choices, and so on—these can be learned easily in a day, and don’t earn you too many points on the UMAT. So what does get you big score improve­ments? In the  MedEntry UMAT prep , you will...

Doesn’t the UMAT do a poor job of predicting medical school grades?

UMAT-bashers have long liked to claim that the UMAT isn’t valuable to universities because it doesn’t predict university grades very well. They miss two important points: first, smart university admissions officers don’t want it to predict grades, and second, it correlates very well with something more important than grades—real success in academic fields like medicine. Predicting grades is a wild-goose chase because grades are not objectively distrib­uted: almost any teacher/professor can give out grades any way he or she wishes. Many students, as we all know, get good grades without having great intellectual ability. They just learn to “play the game”...

UMAT: Speed Reading

The following reading efficiency techniques can boost your reading rate. But even if your rate is fine, these techniques will help you   boost comprehension and concentration. (i)  Mechanical Approach You’ve probably seen speed-readers moving their hands down a page as they rapidly read the material, the theory being that their eyes follow their hands. The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t   force   your eyes to keep up with your hand. When your hand has reached the bottom of the page, your eyes may still be on the first paragraph. Of course, this approach is even more...

UMAT Prep: Establish your personal scoring goals

Your main goal should be to maximise your potential on the actual UMAT test. Very few students get every question right. You have to be realistic. Strive to work within your own abilities. Students often ask: How does my in-class performance translate to how I will perform on the actual UMAT test? Questions are “graded” for difficulty throughout the  MedEntry UMAT prep  tests and in the actual test in July.  In order to get a high score (of above 90 th  percentile) generally you have to be nearly perfect on the easy questions, score at least 80 percent on the hard...

Medical entrance

Medical Entrance Medicine is seen as an attractive career in most countries for several reasons such as a satisfying job which involves you with the lives of those around you, making a positive difference to people’s lives, job security etc. Doctors help people in their time of need and use their knowledge to overcome their grievances so that they can get on with their life, whether they be a janitor or the chief executive officer of a major company. Dealing with people and helping them overcome their troubles would naturally bring one great satisfaction. However, training and practicing doctors are incredibly...

UMAT Learning Forums

You will find numerous forums on the internet discussing UMAT and medical entry. Many of them are run anonymously and contain a lot of misinformation, posted by ‘nameless-faceless people’ with vested interests, so it is important to be sceptical when reading posts on such forums.

Time management in UMAT

Timing is perhaps the most stress-inducing factor of the  UMAT  exam. If the UMAT were at take-home test, you would all score well. Managing time is the key. Most of your  MedEntry UMAT practice  will include timed sections, allowing you to become more familiar and comfortable with the pacing of the exam. The UMAT is not a test of intelligence. Although it is used as a predictor for success in medical schools, it isn’t infallible. A poor performance does not necessarily reflect ineptitude nor does a poor score mean you should not apply to the medical school. It may merely limit...

Satisfaction with MedEntry UMAT Prep

The use of Year 12 results as the sole basis for med school admissions is problematic. History provides many examples of capable students possessing the ability to succeed at med school who, during their final years of schooling, have had their dreams shattered due to illness, family circumstances, personal misfortune or even natural disaster. These students need an alternate method of entry to med schools. This is one of the reasons for the introduction of  UMAT . According to a report, 83 per cent of graduates from Private providers (such as  MedEntry UMAT Prep ) indicate high levels of overall satisfaction...

UMAT is different from School tests

I am sure you know kids who don’t do so well in school, yet somehow manage to ace tests like  UMAT . And you probably know other students who do really well in school, yet when it comes to UMAT, they don’t do nearly as well – and sometimes even bomb the test completely. Why do so many bright students have so much trouble on the UMAT? Because taking the UMAT is nothing like taking the tests at school. Some examples: School tests rarely last more than an hour. In the UMAT you’ve got to stay mentally focussed for about three...

UMAT and careers teachers

Careers teachers knowledge of and interest in  UMAT Preparation  varies quite markedly. There are those who go to the trouble of inviting  UMAT course provider s to come and deliver a course in-house at their school. At the other extreme, there are those who do not have time to research UMAT Preparation, and may be critical of its value for various reasons. If you are in a school where the careers teacher is helpful with regard to UMAT Preparation, you are fortunate: your careers teacher will ensure you get all the necessary information about the UMAT and UMAT training.

UMAT test day: Tips from MedEntry UMAT Prep

MedEntry UMAT Course Tips Relax the night before the UMAT. All of your  MedEntry UMAT study  should be behind you – cramming at this point will probably do more harm than good. As long as you get a good night’s rest you are allowed to have some fun in the evening before the UMAT. Lay out everything you are going to need when taking the UMAT the night beforehand. This will allow you to have a more peaceful rest that night, and a less stressful time in the morning. If you are taking the UMAT at an unfamiliar location, make sure you...

Smart Test Taking tips from MedEntry UMAT Prep

Smart Test-Taking tips for UMAT:  MedEntry UMAT Course  Tips Make your  MedEntry UMAT practice tests  feel real – try your best to replicate the conditions in which you will be actually taking the UMAT. Time yourself with a stopwatch that will beep when your time for each section is up. Take the UMAT test in one sitting with only 10 second  breaks in between sections.  If you have difficulty concentrating for three hours, it is worthwhile building your UMAT test-taking stamina: you might want to take just one or two sections at first, and gradually build up until you are taking...
