The thing with UMAT is, it is just as important as your ATAR when it comes to Med School entry but most students don’t know how to prepare for it. There is no syllabus, teachers or classes at school for it, no homework, no topic test and no major exams. Because of this, it makes it almost inevitable for you to neglect UMAT until it is almost too late. Imagine being able to prepare for UMAT the same way you do for your other subjects.
At Chalkwall, we’ve developed a support program that mimics the requirements of BOSTES for a normal HSC subject. We have 100th percentile calibre instructors, regular weekly classes, weekly assigned homework, topic tests after each section and even assessments. Being a part of the UMAT support program at Chalkwall will make you feel like preparing for UMAT will be as structured as any of your other subjects from school.
Weekly classes are based on exploring your thoughts and learning the strategies to answer questions in the UMAT. We have designed a scope and sequence that starts off by developing generic skills that are necessary to be able to sit the UMAT confidently. We give time to each section separately and also an opportunity to go over all three sections as a whole.
Our Open UMAT Tutorials are based on you studying and working on UMAT questions with the support and guidance of our instructors. This allows you to dedicate a set regular time of extra UMAT study with the luxury of bouncing off your peers for a deeper understanding and a greater build-up of skills for you to be able to tackle UMAT questions better.
Our UMAT Instructors have achieved the best percentiles and also have the expertise of showing you how to do the same. Together, our instructors have developed strategies on how you can best answer UMAT questions and develop your thought process at the same time. If you want to be the best, you need to be trained by the best!
Homework is assigned to you weekly and is monitored by our instructors. This ensures that you are committed to practicing UMAT on a weekly basis.
Section exams after each section will help you recognise your strengths and weaknesses and allow you to create plans to excel.
One of the best ways to measure whether you are improving or heading in the right direction is to do practice papers. With this many papers and all that our UMAT program offers, there are only two things holding you back from that percentile you want; enrolling into the program and your sheer hard work.
If you know anything about UMAT, you’ll know that the sections and questions can be quite challenging for most. Therefore, having a vast range of questions that have been well thought out and at the right level of difficulty is essential. This is why Chalkwall has partnered with the leading UMAT resource provider in the country, MedEntry. These resources, among others, allow us to focus on giving you full support knowing that you have the right resources at your fingertips.
Alongside MedEntry, students also receive a three workbooks, one for each section that includes topic by topic questions and 10 practice papers to do at home at your own pace.
With consistent assigned homework, section by section exams and past papers as part of our support model, checking if you are on the right track for UMAT couldn’t be easier.
