Aims of the course
The Gold UMAT Preparation Program aims to provide UMAT candidates with detailed understanding of all aspects of the UMAT exam along with a subsequent intensive practice regime.

For those wishing to perform to a high standard in UMAT, the METC Institute Academic Faculty advises enrolment in the Gold UMAT Preparation Program.
In summary, students who complete the course will:
- Demonstrate and apply advanced reasoning skills in the domain of text-based and graphical stimuli
- Extrapolate from provisional data, and form and test plausible hypotheses based on such data. This is completed via application of logical reasoning
- Identify, understand, and infer human emotions and behaviour from scenario stimuli including but not limited to excerpts of dialogue, literature, opinion pieces, and personal reflections
- Finally, comprehend and logically deduce abstract and non-verbal problems via application of specific techniques in pattern analysis and non-verbal reasoning
The course involves a combination of attendance, online and self-directed home study via the UMAT101 and UMAT102 courses. In summary, by completing these two courses, students will complete a minimum 120 hours preparation for the UMAT exam including:
- Attendance component: Two days of UMAT specific lectures, interactive problem-based learning and a full-length UMAT practice exam. Course content focuses on the subjects of Logical Reasoning & Problem Solving; Understanding People; and Non-verbal Reasoning. Examination feedback is provided to each student, and details areas of strength and weaknesses allowing students to plan their exam approach prior to UMAT 2017
- Home-Study component: After the attendance course, candidates are provided with a set of exercises and readings to be completed before UMAT 2017. Furthermore, these exercises and readings are specific to the METC Institute and are not available anywhere else
- Online component: 10 full-length UMAT practice exams. Upon completion, each exam provides candidates with solutions highlighting strengths and weaknesses along with opportunities for further improvement
