Predictive validity of the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test for medical students’ academic performance

Abstract

The finding of Wilkinson and colleagues1 that the Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) score and medical school performance are only weakly correlated came as no surprise.

Another shortcoming of the UMAT process has been its inability to recognise the effects that failure in the test can have upon applicants.
