The School has been advised that the UMAT will not be running in 2019 and beyond. It will be replaced by the University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT). The UCAT is a 2-hour computer-based test. Candidates will sit the test at Pearson VUE test centres which are sited in various locations in Australia. The UCAT will be offered on a choice of dates during July, rather than on one single date as has been the case for the UMAT. The test assesses a range of abilities identified as important by university medical and dental schools for success in their programmes or courses, and as a clinician on graduation. Details about the UCAT can be found here. Students who sat the UMAT in 2018 will still have these results used as a part of the selection process in 2018.
