UMAT is available to any candidate whose educational level at the time of sitting the test is their final year of secondary schooling, or higher. Candidates registering for UMAT2017 should have already completed, or plan to COMPLETE their final year of secondary schooling in 2017 (i.e. Year 12 in Australia; Year 13 in New Zealand).

Students whose current educational level is Australian Year 11 or lower are NOT eligible to take UMAT. This includes Year 11 students undertaking one or more Year 12 subjects. Year 12 students completing Year 12 over two years are only eligible to sit UMAT in their final year.

Registering to take UMAT does not constitute an application for admission to any university. Refer to the Universities page of this website for links to each of the universities' websites and contact details. You are strongly advised to obtain a prospectus from any university to which you intend to apply.
