What is uniTEST?
uniTEST is a test of your general prerequisites for completing a university education. It is a multiple-choice test consisting of 95 questions and lasts 2½ hours. You will be asked questions to uncover your ability to:
- analyse, argue and make decisions (critical thinking)
- solve problems based on general quantitative information such as numbers, spreadsheets and graphs (quantitative thinking)
- understand a text as well as the social and cultural contexts it is an expression of (linguistic thinking).
The test is completed online
You must take the uniTEST online from your own computer. In other words, we’ve moved an exam into your living room. Your test participation is observed by an online exam supervisor from SDU via webcam and screen recordings in Zoom. In this way, you as an applicant are guaranteed both test integrity and a high degree of flexibility, as well as the opportunity for immediate support.
You will not be tested in a specific curriculum or subject area that you need to learn in advance. So you cannot revise for uniTEST. Still, it’s a good idea to consider how to approach the questions and make the most of the time available.
- Prepare for the test form
You can try a series of questions from uniTEST, so you are prepared for how the questions are designed.
- Move on instead of getting stuck
There is only a limited amount of time for each question, so it’s important that you do not get stuck on a question that is difficult for you to answer. Rather, make a guess and move on. You can always return to the question if you have time to spare.
- A wrong answer does not count against your score
Therefore, it is better to provide an answer than to skip a question altogether.
- Train your reading speed
Before the questions, you will typically have to read a passage that contains the information you need to answer the questions. Therefore, it’s a good idea to train and optimise your reading speed – especially if you aren’t an avid reader. For example, read a lot of books, newspapers and articles in the period leading up to the test.
