The best way to beat the UMAT is in your preparation. While nobody can predict the exact questions or stimuli that will appear on the UMAT each year, there are similarities in the skills and methodologies required to solve UMAT questions from year to year. By mastering these strategies in your preparation you should be able to answer any questions with any stimuli that they throw at you correctly and efficiently on test day!
UMAT Preparation is moving away from traditional hard-copy materials, instead the more efficient UMAT Preparation Organisations are providing students with online resources for UMAT Preparation. Students do not need to be sitting in a classroom or lecture in order to prepare effectively for the exam because the technology available makes it possible for students to learn and prepare from almost anywhere.
There are a number of UMAT scholarships available to students each year. They range from Scholarships for Preparation Courses to bursaries for Excellence in UMAT performance.
People are often mistaken that the UMAT test requires no study. Unfortunately, students that go into the UMAT with this frame of mind rarely achieve highly. While the UMAT is definitely unconventional, like most things in life, you can prepare for it by practicing. How well you do in your UMAT is dependent on how well you do compared to your peers, many of whom are preparing to gain any advantage they can. For VCE students who no longer have mid-year exams to worry about, there is absolutely no excuse NOT to study for the UMAT. Do not fall behind your fellow students who are fighting for the same limited university places. While there is a limited supply free preparation material available online, you may require more. If this applies to you, you should maybe consider taking on one of the UMAT preparation courses.
