    UMAT past papers!

    So, how's everyone going with them?

    Also, I just finished doing a paper in the old format, could somebody give me a very rough indication of what percentile I would get with this this mark?

    80/110

    Re: UMAT past papers!

    That's crazy! Thanks iSplicer.

    And about the papers teeah,
    I have absolutely no idea which ones they are. They don't have their name on the paper...
    But they're from some company, and they are pretty hard. As above, I only got 73% in the one I just completed!

    Nice work! My scores are still fluctuating quite a bit..some days I'll get in the 70's and the next, I'll get in the 90's!

    How often do you do a paper?

    Re: UMAT past papers!

    IMO, iSplicer has given you very false hope..
    the UMAT isn't a exam which you can expect to get 90+% on because you've been getting decent marks in prep material.
    The prep material differs to the actual exam and marks achieved on these should only be taken with a grain of salt.
    Even with that said, it is impossible to know how a mark of 80/110 would translate to as a percentile.
    Your best bet is to check out medstudentsonlne for more info on UMAT related topics. In fact, people who have achieved well in the UMAT on those forums (and have actually gained entry to Medicine - that required a high UMAT score) believe that one should be attaining almost full marks in any practice material/paper.

    Re: UMAT past papers!

    Yea every question is scaled based on the difficulty of the exam. Thus in saying so, an 80/110 cannot accurately determine what percentile you will get, as your marks are scaled and compared with the other candidates in order to determine your final percentile.

    That's why I asked for a 'very rough' estimate
