UMAT or GAMSAT? Which is easier?

This is a difficult question because it depends on so many things. Overall, they are both equally hard. Some students may have strengths in some areas and it may suit certain tests. For example some students may find the writing exercise in GAMSAT matches their strengths. For some students, the abstract reasoning may be their strength and find Section 3 of UMAT particularly easy. Overall both are competitive tests but the cohort of people sitting the tests are different. Most people who sit the UMAT are school leavers whereas those who sit GAMSAT come from a wide range of backgrounds (new grads, postgrads, PhDs,...

UMAT section 2 tips & advice: understanding people.

Understanding people in the UMAT exam. Absorbing and recalling all of the information that you need from the passages you are given in UMAT section 2 can be quite difficult, however there are ways to tackle these long and dense passages so that you are able to process them and extract the important information more efficiently and effectively and thus improve your section 2 UMAT score. How should I approach section 2 (understanding people) UMAT questions? One of the best ways to process section 2 UMAT stimuli is to break the paragraph down into simpler forms through paraphrasing.  This means that...

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...

My friend did a UMAT course but didn’t get into Medicine!

My friend did a UMAT course but didn’t get into Medicine! Performance in UMAT depends on what UMAT course you do. There are over fifty UMAT course providers and most of them are of poor quality, and he/she may have done one of those. Furthermore, since interview scores count for about a third of the selection criteria for medicine, interview training is important too. Your friend may not have done medical interview training. We can guarantee that MedEntry’s UMAT program works. That is, we can guarantee that students will perform better after doing the course, compared to if they had not...

UMAT Sample question 4

Question: Find the missing segment Solution: The squares in the left column add with the middle column to give the squares in the right column. When a pattern piece is repeated in both the left and middle column they cancel each other out so don’t appear in the right column. The missing piece must add to the second piece down in the left column to give the second one down in the right column. Therefore A is correct. Therefore the correct answer is A.  

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...

If this is Your UMAT test day, Get Excited!

If this is Your UMAT day, Get Excited! It’s natural to feel nervous the day before the test, maybe even a bit panicked, but let’s try to get some perspective on your situation. Try to think of your UMAT as an audition for university, but as an audition that counts. Naturally you hope that your audition goes well, but it’s not a big deal if it doesn’t go quite as well as you’d like. 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...

UMAT Tuition

UMAT Coaching A basketball coach explained it to me when I was a young that excellent performance depends upon three things: native ability, good coaching, and effective practice (which can change almost everything). Effective practice—as distinct from practicing without awareness of how or what to change—depends upon good coaching. The Lecturers at  MedEntry UMAT Courses  think of themselves as a Coaches when they teach. They are  as good a teachers of UMAT as my basketball coach is a teacher of basketball.

Medicine at Monash or Melbourne?

Medicine at Monash (via  UMAT ) or Melbourne (via GAMSAT)? A dilemma facing high achievers wanting to pursue medicine is whether to choose Monash University (school leaver entry) or Melbourne University (graduate route). Many parents often ask “why did some universities abandon the school leaver entry route to medicine and which route is better?” Our view is that Monash school leaver entry is far superior for several reasons including: 1. No guarantee: Melbourne Graduate medicine does NOT have guaranteed places in Medicine, even though the university claims that it has. Even those who obtain an ATAR of 99.95 have to maintain...

UMAT test tips

Ignore these Two Voices in Your Head We want to warn you that during the test, two tiny invisible fairies will be sitting on your shoulders, whispering in your ears. You’ll hear only one of the fairies, and you won’t be sure which one it is until the test starts. One of the fairies whispers gleefully, “I can’t believe how easy this test is.” The other fairy whispers ominously, “This is by far the hardest test I’ve ever taken.” There aren’t really fairies whispering in your ears, of course, but we promise you that you will hear one of those two...

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...

If you find your friends there, get together and talk about things to get into a positive mindset.
