THE STRUCTURE OF THE SIMULATED UMAT DAY

Whether you are in Year 10, 11 or 12, our face-to-face full day UMAT workshop is an excellent chance for you to assess your UMAT knowledge and discover what areas need the most attention. The workshop includes 5 hours of tuition time to cover every section of the UMAT, the various types of questions to be encountered and how to tackle them, and of course Medical Interviews.

After a short lunch break, students will be sitting full strength, 3 hours UMAT mock paper under strict test conditions. Our past students always say that this part of the day is a very similar experience to the one when attempting the real UMAT. So why not put yourself through this experience and identify your strengths and weaknesses before the actual big day.

The Simulated UMAT Day is finalised by scoring the test, answering students’ questions, and providing advice and recommendations. Make sure you take the opportunity to meet and discuss the UMAT with our expert teacher and ask any questions you may have.

Please note, places for this event are strictly limited and registration is required.
