Why does NIE go to the effort and expense of authoring, printing and posting hardcopy books? What are the benefits of studying for UMAT online?February 11, 2016
So who exactly is the NIE? Well it’s not a single person, although it was founded by a visionary director with a passion for education and assisting Australian Youth in realising their dreams, it is actually a dedicated team of qualified and experienced educators. Are we Doctors? Absolutely not. Whilst we could be as we are masters of the UMAT, the goal of NIE is to facilitate entry into medicine and other courses. As such it is paramount that our staff are enthusiastic and highly experienced educators with specialist educational strengths within the scope of the UMAT. And that my friends is a highly speeded psychometric test that actually has nothing at all to do with the study or practice of Medicine (other than being an abstract part of the selection process).
So you want to sit the UMAT? Did you know that in some cases the UMAT is actually more important than your entire Yr12?
The first step in conquering the UMAT is to understand what the test is really all about.
