UMAT scores can be used for admission to any of the UMAT Consortium universities ONLY in the year following the test. For example, results from UMAT2018 can be used for undergraduate medicine or health science courses beginning in 2019 but NOT 2020. Do not register for UMAT2018 unless you are planning to apply for a course commencing in 2019 AND you meet the eligibility criteria specified in the UMAT2018 Information Booklet.
An online UMAT Statement of Results will be made available to all candidates in mid September. Candidates receive a score for each of the three constructs (Logical Reasoning and Problem Solving, Understanding People, Non-verbal Reasoning), together with an Overall score, and an overall percentile rank to give you an indication of how well you performed against other UMAT candidates.
The Overall score is an unweighted aggregate of the three construct scores statistically calculated from several decimal places.
Each of the 3 construct scores is expressed on a scale of 0 to 100. These are not percentage marks.
The Overall UMAT Score is calculated using the following formula:
Score 1 + Score 2 + Score 3
Please note: The Overall score is calculated to several decimal places and then rounded. The Overall score is calculated before the rounding of section scores. It is not possible for candidates to replicate this process. See this link for more information.
Candidates will not be provided with any additional information on the scoring process. All such information remains the property of ACER and the UMAT Consortium. A candidate has no right to examination of ACER’s scoring processes and methodologies.
Under no circumstances will results be released over the phone, by fax or by email. This is to protect candidate confidentiality.
The universities will set their own UMAT cut-off scores each year. These will be the minimum UMAT scores acceptable for consideration by the admissions committees and may vary from one university to another. The universities may also choose to use the scores in other ways.
