Effective Learning in the UMAT

Learning is not just about sitting in front of a text book and hoping the content will diffuse into your mind through osmosis. In order to learn effectively, you must learn actively, not passively. Active learning will allow you to engage with what you are learning and absorb it faster. New study strategies will also be introduced in this article so you can in-corporate them into your UMAT study. This will give your UMAT study sessions a direction and allow you to set goals.  What is active learning? Active learning is all about engaging with what you are learning and how...

10 Tips For During The UMAT

UMAT test tips: Entering the Exam Room

Entering the UMAT Exam Room Don’t just wander into your UMAT exam room casually. Try to be one of the first students into the exam room so that you can choose a good seat (assuming seating is not assigned, as it sometimes is). A good seat is one that gives you a clear view of the supervisor and of the central clock in the room and where you are least likely to be faced with distractions. When I took exams I always preferred seats in the very back of the room because I didn’t like the feeling that something was going...

UMAT: Arriving at the UMAT Test Site

UMAT:  Arriving at the  UMAT Test Site There will probably be hundreds of nervous students milling around at the entrance to the UMAT test site, reviewing notes, or muttering to themselves. You should avoid congregating near those who appear nervous so you can remain focused, but that’s up to you and your state of mind that morning. If you find your friends there, get together and talk about things to get into a positive mindset. If you arrived super early, you can hang out in the car or find a place to sit and read a book or listen to some...

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...

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...

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....

How to Guess in UMAT

When You Need to Guess in UMAT, Beware of Your Hunches You know that whenever you can make a quick guess on a question to avoid leaving it blank, you should take the shot. The key word here is quick; you can always afford to guess, but you can never afford to waste time. So, how should you guess? Let’s be clear about something: guessing does not mean selecting a choice at random. But it also doesn’t mean selecting the choice that seems to be right. Guessing means selecting the choice that has the  greatest   chance  of being right, regardless...

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...

UMAT Tips: Learn to make intelligent guesses when necessary

Another tip in scoring well in the  UMAT  test is to try to eliminate as many responses as you can. Here’s why it is important to eliminate at least some choices when you’re guessing. If you get to a question and you’re not sure of the answer, of course you’ll have to guess. Whether you’re guessing among all four choices or you’ve eliminated a couple of obvious wrong answers, it still feels the same. But this is one time when you shouldn’t listen to your feelings. Let’s say that two test-takers each encounter questions they aren’t sure about during the exam....

UMAT test tips from MedEntry UMAT Prep

Tips for the actual exam:  MedEntry UMAT Course  Tips Pace yourself as you go. If you find yourself losing focus in the last section think “finish strong” rather than “I’m almost out of here”. Don’t allow yourself to switch off until that final answer is filled in. Never give up until you hear “pencils down”! Don’t change your answers without good reason, only change them when you’ve reviewed the whole problem and discovered a mistake. For example, “this answer can’t be A, the last two were A” and “it can’t be this one, it’s too easy” are not good reasons to...

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.
