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 the BMAT in the first week of November of that application cycle. Results are released in late November and universities will decide whether they will send you a conditional offer or interview offer (for medicine and veterinary applicants) based on your BMAT results, academic portfolio, school references, 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 in biology, chemistry and physics.
- essay writing.


If you are uncertain whether to take the BMAT or another aptitude test the UKCAT, we recommend that you take both tests and see which one matches your strong suit.

Our BMAT Tutors


The IB was tough and grueling program, but I credit my peers, teachers and the wonderful tutors at Cana for providing a challenging and fulfilling environment for me to learn. Cana tutors are not only knowledgeable in their fields but also approachable; willing and able to answer any questions I had on hand. Overall, I'm really happy with completing the IB and I can definitely say that the feeling of accomplishment after receiving my score made all the hard work worth it.
