Post UMAT Studying Medicine

Studying Medicine Post UMAT

Clearing the UMAT is only the first step in the procedure of gaining a seat in med schools. The next step, that is, the face-to-face interview, is no less strenuous. Once you clear the examination, you will be eligible to apply in the University of your choice and sit for an interview. Your admission to a university is subject to your UMAT score as well as your performance in the interview. So, your choice of universities should be a wise one. If this is your second attempt in a row, apply with the better score.

Given below is a list of all the schools that accept UMAT scores:
