About the UMAT
The UMAT test aims to assess general skills and attributes that students would have gained through previous experience and learning rather than their academic abilities. These attributes include things like: critical thinking, problem solving, understanding people and abstract non-verbal reasoning. These attributes are very important for medical and health science professionals to have in addition to their academic knowledge.
The UMAT is not an IQ test. It is an aptitude test. The questions on the test are not based on any academic curriculum or secondary school subjects (prerequisite knowledge) as the UMAT test aims to complement your academic results, not replace them.
