I just got my UMAT score back... - September 22nd 2010, 02:58 PM

For those of you who know what the UMAT is (I don't feel like explaining right now, if you don't, google) I got:
Section 1: 58
Section 2: 50
Section 3: 65
Overall: 57
Percentile: 82

At first I was excited, now I'm a little disappointed and worried that it's not enough to get in to Medicine.

if its the same as the GAMSAT. Thats pretty damn good, I'd imagine it'd see you through.

And surely percentile means youre in the top 82%?

It is what it is.. no point worrying about whether it is or isn't good enough, they won't have set cut off scores yet will they? It's not a BRILLIANT score but it's farrr from a bad score. I don't think there is anything massive to worry about. Well done!

But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

Each uni has different cut-offs and the are given small adjustments each year.

^ .. I know. Which is why there is no point worrying as they haven't even been published yet.

However it's pretty easy to give a good guess at what the cut off points will be by looking at the last few years (seems to be an upward trend..)

I've heard from friends and other forums that some universities require a score of 50+ for each section, so you've done well there!
Other unis don't require UMAT at all, I believe JCU is one of them.

Otherwise, you can do UMAT next year and re-apply for medicine. Did you do a UMAT training course? I personally went with MedEntry (Just google them) and thought they were really helpful - now in 2nd year med at Monash.

Message me if I can help you at all.
