The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is an admissions test for applicants to Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Biomedical Science and Dentistry courses at certain universities.

UPDATE

As announced by Cambridge Assessment last year, the BMAT will no longer be offered from 2024 onwards.

Therefore, medical schools will not ask for your BMAT score in the future, even if they have traditionally preferred the BMAT over the UCAT (Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, etc.).

The UCAT is likely to become the de facto choice for medical school admissions in the near future.

About the BMAT

Apart from being an entry requirement, BMAT gives you the chance to stand out from the crowd and show your potential to succeed on a demanding science-based university course.

It is a required test for the top medical schools like:

  • University of Cambridge (required for veterinary medicine applicants)
  • Imperial College London
  • University of Oxford Medical School
  • Royal Veterinary College
  • University College London
  • Leeds’ School of Medicine
  • Brighton & Sussex Medical School (Graduate entry)
  • Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (Singapore)
  • University of Leiden (Netherlands) – February exam only
  • University of Navarra (Spain) – February & November exams
  • University of Malaya – February exam only

What is a good score?

Questions in Sections 1 and 2 are worth 1 mark each. Total raw marks for each section are converted to BMAT’s scale, which runs from 1 (low) to 9 (high). Typical BMAT candidates will score around 5.0, roughly half marks. The best candidates will score around 6.0, and a few exceptional candidates will score higher than 7.0.

Writing Tasks in Section 3 are marked by two examiners. Each examiner gives two scores – one for quality of content (on a scale of 0–5), and one for quality of written English (on the scale A, C, E).
