Preparation, Preparation, Preparation: the key for UMAT success.

UMAT: a multiple guess or multiple choice test? You choose. A university lecturer of mine, once made the comment prior to us all about to sit an exam, that he would cry if we didn’t answer every question because: ‘guys, it’s a multiple choice paper, so even a monkey could get one in every four questions right’.  Although I’ve never personally seen a monkey sit the UMAT exam, statistically speaking, it was a fair point to make, and for the record: not one student failed that paper. Why prepare for the UMAT or do UMAT preparation courses?To truly succeed in the UMAT and get top...

My friend got into Medicine without doing a UMAT course!

My friend got into Medicine without doing a UMAT course! Many students who undergo training for UMAT do not admit it for several reasons (for example, it increases their competition). A student may have obtained 90th percentile for UMAT and got in to medicine without doing a course. If they had done our course, they would have obtained a higher score, say 100th percentile (and perhaps been awarded a scholarship to study medicine as well). Even those who may obtain 100th percentile without preparation will be at the top end of 100th percentile (i.e. obtain a higher overall score) with preparation, guaranteeing them a...

There are over fifty UMAT course providers and most of them are of poor quality, and he/she may have done one of those.

UMAT 2012 ACER survey question about preparation

On the Answer Sheet during the UMAT test in 2012 it had an ‘optional’ question asking students whether you did any form of preparation for UMAT other than the 2 papers supplied by ACER themselves and claims it is “for research purposes only”. Many students wonder what the purpose of it was.One possible explanation for this, is that ACER is trying to do some ‘research’ to prove that UMAT Preparation does not help. ACER does not like UMAT courses because they provide an advantage to students.Most students who have done preparation are not going to admit that they had done it...

Some UMAT students wind up re-taking the test in the following year.So don’t think that all your university hopes rest on how you do on the day of...

UMAT : The morning of the UMAT test

Waking Up on the UMAT Test Morning When you wake up, consider taking a shower or doing some brief calisthenics or other exercise to get the blood flowing—especially to your groggy brain! If someone is taking you to the test site, make sure he or she is up, too.Eat a normal breakfast, but not too much or you’ll be groggy. If you’re used to consuming some form of caffeine—tea, coffee, cola—then doing so is probably a good idea this morning. But only if you’re used to caffeine; if you’re not, now is not the morning to start.Make sure you have everything with...

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 hoursOn school tests, your...
