About the UMAT

"UMAT is designed to assess general attributes and abilities gained through prior experience and learning; specifically, the acquisition of skills in critical thinking and problem solving, understanding people and abstract non-verbal reasoning. These abilities are considered important to the study, and later practice, of professions in the health sciences.

UMAT is an aptitude test; it is not a personality or IQ test. The test is not curriculum-based and presupposes no particular subjects at secondary level. UMAT does not require any knowledge or skills in mathematics or sciences, or in any other area of the curriculum. It is designed to complement your academic results, not to replicate them."

The UMAT's structure

In 2013 the UMATs 3 sections: Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving (48 Questions in 70 minutes), Understanding People (44 Questions in 55 minutes) and Non-verbal reasoning (42 Questions in 55 minutes) were fused together into a 3 hour long test consisting of 134 questions, with a 10 minute reading period to begin with.

UMAT non-verbal reasoning

"Questions in this section may be of several kinds. All are based on patterns or sequences of shapes and are designed to assess your ability to reason in the abstract and solve problems in non-verbal contexts." The three kinds are: 'continue the series', 'complete the diagram' and 'fits the middle'
