Hey fam! Gentlest reminder that UMAT registration closes in approximately a month from now - 1 June, 2018. It costs a hefty 260 Australian Dollars. It’s not a fun test, but it’s a necessary one. Many people apply because it provides them the option to apply for Medicine as you’ll find not everyone is 100% sure of what they’d want to do in the future!

Lastly, below’s a checklist for preparing for UMAT. We’ll post this up again closer to the date because it’s really not important right now; but I guess it’s just nice to know there’s a checklist out there somewhere….!
