What is BMAT?

The Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a test used by a collection of UK medical or related schools as a vital part of their screening process. If you are applying for the medical, veterinary or biomedical courses at top universities like Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial College etc., you are required to take BMAT in the first week of November of the application cycle. Results are released in late November and universities will decide whether they are giving you conditional offer or interview offer (for medicine and veterinary applicants) based on your BMAT results together with your academic portfolio, school reference and personal statement. 

The test takes 120 minutes and consists of three major parts: aptitude test with critical thinking and problem solving questions, knowledge test on biology, chemistry and physics, and essay writing.
