In 2016 Bond University has cancelled UMAT as part of their selection criteria into medicine. However, as of 2018 Bond University has introduced their own Psychometric Test as part of their selection criteria into their medical degree.
For those students who applied for Bond Medicine, based on academic achievement, about 50% of applicants will be offered an opportunity to complete a compulsory Bond University Psychometric online test. The test will be in Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) format and will consist of two timed parts. Part A will take 30 minutes to complete, and Part B is 40 minutes.
This Psychometric test is an emotional intelligence test which has been designed to choose applicants with character traits important for a successful career as a doctor, for example, resilience, logical reasoning and empathy. Moreover, the test is designed to “rule out” personality traits such as narcissism, which has been recognised as a common cause of rogue (dishonest and unprincipled) medical practitioners. Applicants are also encouraged to have discussions with dentists, dental specialists, dental academics; observing a dental practitioner in a variety of practice settings; hands-on experience e.g. dental assistant work.
On Monday, 12th of February 2018, successful applicants will be notified via email if they have received an offer to sit the Psychometric Test. The fee for this test which will have to be paid by the student is $140.
The MMI interview medicine offers for Bond University will be based on the results of the Psychometric Test, and will be released couple of days after the test. 250 students will receive an interview offer.
