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.

If you have not received your Admission Ticket one week before the test, contact the UMAT Office. You will not be allowed to sit UMAT if you do not have your Admission Ticket with you.

If you do not bring your Admission Ticket and appropriate identification with you on the day of the test, you will NOT be permitted to sit UMAT and will be turned away from the test centre.

Q How long is the test?
A UMAT consists of 3 hours of test time. However, you will need to allow between 4 and 5 hours from the arrival time for the registration process and testing time. 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, 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.
