The Undergraduate Medical Admissions Test (UMAT) is taken by graduates of high school who wish to study a bachelor degree in certain health science subjects. It is administered by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to help universities select suitable domestic candidates. The UMAT comprises three sections:
• Logical reasoning and problem solving - questions to work out your ability to analyse, evaluate and test information received.
• Understanding people - questions testing emotional intelligence and sensitivity.
• Non-verbal reasoning: questions based on pattern-recognition, sequence identification and other non-verbal cues and abstract concepts.
