Preparing for the test
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.
Progressing from the test
The test consists of 95 questions, and you can achieve between 0 and 100 points. Please note that the test score is not a simple count of correct answers.
You need at least 35 points to pass the test (25 if you are applying for a BEng-programme). Passing the test means that you are in the pool of applicants with a possibility of progressing, either to a programme specific test or directly to admission depending on the programme. To actually progress may require a higher score depending on the number of applicants and how other applicants perform.
If you do not pass the test, you cannot achieve a study places in quota 2 - regardless of the number of applicants.
