International Student Admissions Test (ISAT)

ISAT is a three-hour multiple choice test. The test focuses on the generic and cross-curricular skills that underpin academic performance. ISAT is not a test of subject-specific knowledge. Rather, it aims to assess candidates' cognitive ability, and Critical and Quantitative Reasoning skills.

  • Critical Reasoning – comprehending and analysing information; understanding, applying and extending ideas; drawing appropriate conclusions; evaluating arguments. These questions use material from the humanities and social sciences.
  • Quantitative Reasoning – analysis and application of information; drawing conclusions and making decisions; solving problems. These questions use material from mathematics and the sciences.

Registering for ISAT

Taylors College organises UWAFP students to sit the ISAT in May each year. Students register online to take the test at a date advised by the UWAFP Tertiary Advisor. The test is taken at Taylors College, a registered ISAT testing centre.

Structured Interview

The interview is the third stage of the application process. ISAT and academic scores will determine if you are offered an interview in early December.

You will need to book your own interview time online. The purpose of the interview is to consider a range of personal attributes which are considered desirable in medical practitioners, such as motivation and commitment, ability to assist and work with others, ability to think critically, awareness of health and diversity issues,as well as communication skills.

You will need to show an ability to provide thoughtful and informed answers.
