Why are NIE the UMAT leaders!
UMAT NIE is the only UMAT preparation and training organisation in Australia and New Zealand that is managed by the Department of Education and Training registered and accredited teachers.
No other provider comes close to the NIE UMAT preparation courses, its content or success. Anyone saying so is simply not being honest. We challenge you to find a lower priced program that can offer comprehensive hard copy books, works with smaller class sizes, has been conducting UMAT prep since 1999, is partnered with elite tutoring organisations, offers final practice exams as hard if not harder than the real UMAT, and is managed by the Department of Education and Training accredited teachers. We don't market or advertise like others, preferring to let our success stories do the talking. Don't be fooled into thinking that an online course or a program run by students will be helpful for UMAT.
There is a reason why we spend thousands of dollars on developing, printing and posting hundreds of book sets each year…because it works! UMAT is a paper test sat at a desk and that is exactly how you should prepare for it.

UMAT Changes for 2013
Unlike last year, this year there are no extra questions, nor there will be any extra time added to the test. However, there is one major change, and this change is reflected in sections of the UMAT NIE 2013 Course preparation materials and our workshops.
In all previous years there were always 3 separate sections in the UMAT, where students had to finish each section in a particular given time. Students were not allowed to go back to the previous section past the allocated time. The styles of questions for UMAT 2013 are still the same, covering Logical Reasoning, Understanding People and Non-verbal Reasoning skills. However, questions are no longer divided into three timed sections; instead all questions are randomly mixed up. Also, the three areas of UMAT questions, Logical Reasoning and Problem Solving, Understanding People, and Non-verbal Reasoning, are now knows as "Constructs" not Sections.
And so, UMAT 2013 will be a 3 hour test consisting of 134 questions, the test is NO LONGER divided into timed sections. Students will also be given 10 minutes reading time to check the accuracy or printing error of the test. This will be followed by 3 hours of testing time without any breaks. Students can answer questions in any order they want. The Statement of Results will contain a score for each construct and an overall score "aggregate" for the test. Students will also be provided with information on their overall percentile rank.
