Introduction:The UMAT is often the one test that ultimately stands in the way between high-achieving students and a career in medicine and dentistry. Unlike any other test, students have sat before, UMAT does not assess the ability to recall knowledge, but rather your skill in using critical thinking to solve problems with logical reasoning processes. In short, the UMAT looks at whether a student is competent in identifying relevant information, making sense of it, and depending on the question asked to formulate a series of working to justify why one of the four answer options is correct over the others.What does this all mean regarding the kind of preparation you need to beat the UMAT?The preparation involves a more complex array of steps than purely memorising information Since the UMAT is essentially testing a skill (not knowledge), there needs to be a key teaching component of the techniques required to answer questions for learning to be quick and effective Finally, the student will need to be so refined in their ability to apply techniques to previously unseen questions to have the ability to 'work out' questions systematically and under timed conditions In short, UMAT preparation is anything but straightforward, if you don't know how. Furthermore, ineffective preparation could lead to wasting massive amounts of time which could impact your chances of scoring a good academic result in year 12/university The Solution:Michael, our co-founder, will also take the opportunity to introduce you to the 101 of UMAT preparation and why planning your UMAT preparation this early on in the UMAT is essential for securing a successful UMAT 2018 outcome. Coverage:2.5 hours will be spent on making sure you understand: What the UMAT is and what makes it such a hard test What preparation strategies you must implement to guarantee great results and what preparation strategies you should avoid at all costs Explain the question styles found in the 2017 UMAT exam as well as live demonstrations showing techniques to solve them Mock test followed by the dissection and explanation of how to answer these most frequently asked UMAT questions Conclusion:The event is aimed at giving a distinct advantage to anyone who attends it. iCanMed has helped over 400 students gain entrance into medical and dental schools across New Zealand and Australia and is looking forward to sharing the most useful strategies in this workshop. If you are serious about getting into your dream course, this workshop is one thing you cannot miss.
