FAQ about the test

Q How will I know the exact location of the test centre?
A Registered candidates will receive an Admission Ticket approximately 2 weeks prior to the test. The ticket will show the exact test centre location and the reporting time. The UMAT Office will not announce venue details before the release of Admission Tickets.

Q How do I access my Admission Ticket?
A You will receive email notification when your Admission Ticket is accessible in your online account. In order to view the Admission Ticket, you must have uploaded your photograph and the details of your identification document to your registration.

Q How long is the test?
A UMAT consists of 3 hours of test time, plus 10 minutes reading time. However, you will need to allow up to 5 hours at the test centre for the completion of all testing procedures. This time may be shorter at regional test centres with smaller candidate numbers.

Q Are there any practice questions or preparation materials available?
A UMAT preparation materials are available to purchase as online tests. A few example questions are also included in the UMAT Information Booklet. Past UMAT papers are not released. ACER and the UMAT Consortium do NOT recommend or endorse any commercially available courses offering UMAT preparation. ACER, as the agency responsible for UMAT development, is not involved in the development of any commercially available preparation courses or materials and cannot provide advice about their relevance or usefulness. It is possible that some commercial preparation courses might provide misleading information or advice to candidates. Candidates who enrol or purchase materials do so at their own risk.
