Actually, don't have a big breakfast. I had one just before the morning session and I was feeling so bloated and sleepy during the UMAT.Originally posted by robbo_drinks@Jun 5 2007, 12:05 AM
For all those VCE/UMAT sitters
don't stress, the best thing you can do as prep for the UMAT is know what you're in for, look at some practice questions and don't be surprised when you get in there.
apart from that, there's nothing you can do apart from eating a big breakfast and being in the right state of mind.
I had a wobbly table to play with and a lovely nape of the person in front of me's neck to look at. That drew quite a few stares from the invigilatorsOriginally posted by anarchron@Jun 5 2007, 05:22 AM
I had Chrysantaneum Tea in the UMAT. That drew quite a few stares

Why? Did you run to the UMAT testing centre? As far as I know, you've got to burn off alot of glycogen before the body switches to fat. In this case, much longer than 5 hours. You're not going to be hypoglycemic in 5 hours, unless of course if you're diabetic.Originally posted by robbo_drinks@Jun 5 2007, 07:52 PM

if you want to be hypoglycaemic and ketotic in the UMAT then by all means don't eat breakfast, but it's a fukn 3 hour exam, you're gonna need sustenance...
Actually, that's not too bad in terms of advice. exactly what i did when i realised i forgot how much time there was for each question. felt the epinephrine rush too.Originally posted by Veon@Jun 3 2007, 08:48 PM
We get like 40 seconds per question for section 1, don't we?
That's an incredibly small amount of time to make a decision, especially considering some of the slabs of info we have to read through.
I think the best piece of advice anyone has given me regarding the umat is 'rush it!'.
Hehe, I don't know about that guy. I've fallen asleep in 75% of the lectures he's given us.Originally posted by AussieChica@Jun 5 2007, 10:10 PM
