What is UMAT?
1 Answer | Add Yours
The initials UMAT can stand for several things, but given the "Health" category specified with the question, it stands for Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test, the standardized exam used by Australia and New Zealand for use in selecting applicants for some medical courses like optometry and dentistry. According to the UMAT website, the test was developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research on behalf of the UMAT universities. The exam is applied for those entering college, not those graduating and seeking admission to graduate-level medical school. As with standardized entrance exams at American universities, preparation courses are offered for the UMAT.
