UMAT Preparation Course

PLC Sydney provides the only school-based UMAT preparation course in Australia. 

UMAT is developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) on behalf of the UMAT consortium universities. UMAT is used specifically to help with the selection of students into medicine, dentistry and some health science degree programs at undergraduate level. 

The test assesses general attributes and skills gained through prior experience and learning, such as critical thinking and problem solving, interactions with others, and abstract non-verbal reasoning. It does not measure academic knowledge. 

This UMAT Preparation Course will expose students to the format, practice questions and strategies required for the UMAT Exam later in the year. 

The dates for 2017 are as follows:

Dates:

Monday 10 April and Tuesday 11 April 2017

Times: 

10.00 am – 4.00 pm on each day

Venue: 

McQueen Seminar Room, PLC Sydney
