The purpose of UMAT is to assess your abilities in a range of general skills and personal attributes. UMAT measures skills acquired over a period of time, including the ability to reason, make logical deductions and form judgements. The test does not draw on any particular body of knowledge or curriculum.
Intensive preparation is not advisable or necessary. However, wide and critical reading may provide helpful preparation and, as with any test, some practice in answering questions of a similar type, and under similar time constraints as those found in the real test is helpful and reassuring to most candidates. It is also helpful to practice using a machine-readable answer sheet similar to the one in the actual test.
For further tips on how to answer questions, please see the information provided under Preparation strategy.
