Q Can I sit UMAT on another date?
A All candidates who register for UMAT2017 will be expected to attend the test on Wednesday 26 July 2017.

Q Can I sit UMAT overseas?
A Overseas test centres are available in New Zealand (Auckland, Dunedin) and in London, Singapore and Washington DC. If you elect to sit UMAT outside Australia and New Zealand, an overseas test levy ($185) is payable in addition to the registration fee. Requests for additional test centres cannot be considered under any circumstances.

Q What kind of ID is acceptable?

Q Does registering for the test mean I have applied for university entry?
