Does UMAT coaching work?

Psychometric tests such as  UMAT   are new in Australia, but in the US numerous such tests have been in use for nearly a century. Coaching organisations are therefore well established. The officials at the Educational Testing Service (ETS) at Princeton (the equivalent of ACER) say that they have no objection to the coaching because what is important is that students learn the skills that are tested, whether it is at school, university or at a coaching college. It is to be expected that ACER would claim that the  UMAT   is a test that is not susceptible to coaching in...

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...

Do girls do better in the UMAT?

Girls get better grades in school and university in general than boys- so come on guys, get your act together! But here’s a surprise: boys in general outscore girls in aptitude tests. There may be several reasons for this such as: Boys treat aptitude tests as a game to be beaten and strategise School and university tests/exams reward hardwork, whereas aptitude tests reward skills But wait a minute: In the  UMAT  however, there is no discernible difference in the overall UMAT scores between boys and girls because the second section advantages girls.  MedEntry UMAT training  provides strategies on how to identify...

Are UMAT and HPAT fair tests?

Every year, debates continue to rage about  UMAT / HPAT .  Is it fair? Is it biased? Is it an achivement test or an aptitude test? Is it good? Is it evil? Does it measure intelligence? Does it measure anything? Does it measure how well you will do in medical school? Does it predict whether you will be a ‘good’ doctor? When a test of similar nature was introduced in the USA in 1926 debates raged on for decades. It is now accepted as a necessary part of university selection criteria. These questions come up every year for one good reason:...

If your...

Are UMAT Courses useful?

UMAT Coaching  Enhances Performance at University The Psychometric Entrance Test (PET) is a standardised test used for medical admission in Israel, administered by the National Institute for Testing and Evaluation (NITE). At the 35th International Association for Educational Assessment Conference in Brisbane (August 2010), the Director of the NITE said that while the organisation does not approve of coaching colleges (because they make NITE’s task in distinguishing between students more difficult), students who undergo coaching for PET perform better at university because they have more developed thinking skills. The benefit of UMAT course is atleast two fold: to help improve your ...

The following is an example of a question you may expect in section 2 of the  UMAT : Two Afghani women, Miriam and Laila, are married to the same abusive husband. Miriam is the older wife, and has just given some baby clothes to Laila. “Thank you, the clothes are lovely.” Laila said. “I had no use for them,” Mariam muttered.
