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 or biomedical courses at top universities like Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial College etc., you may be required to take the BMAT in September or October of that application cycle.

The 2020 BMAT test dates are 5th September (Sat) and 4th November (Wed). Results are released within a month and universities will decide whether they will send you a conditional offer or interview offer 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

Overview of BMAT?

The BMAT is an aptitude test used as part of the admissions process in certain universities in the United Kingdom, Spain, the Netherlands, Thailand and Malaysia for entry into a medicine, or dentistry programme.

It is a 2-hour long paper, consisting of three sections:

  • Section 1 (Aptitude and Skills) is designed to test problem solving, understanding arguments, data-analysis, critical thinking, logic and reasoning.
  • Section 2 (Scientific Knowledge and Applications) is designed to test the ability to apply scientific knowledge typically covered in school Science and Mathematics by the age of 16 (for example, GCSE in the UK and IGCSE internationally).
  • Section 3 (Writing Task), where candidates must complete one essay question from a choice of three, testing their ability to select, develop and organise ideas, and to communicate them in writing, concisely and effectively.

The BMAT results help admissions officers identify candidates who possess reasoning and communication skills required to succeed in the rigorous courses applied. While each medical school uses the BMAT score differently, in general a high score on the BMAT will determine if you have interview at the medical schools and significantly increase your chance of an offer. It is therefore worth spending time familiarizing yourself with the test format, practising with past papers, as well as learning test-taking strategies.

Our BMAT course is designed to provide a concise but thorough guide and training for students who will be taking the BMAT in 2021.

Who should enroll?

Students applying to the following UK medical school for admission in the 2021 application cycle:

  • Brighton & Sussex Medical School
  • University of Cambridge
  • Imperial College London
  • Keele University
  • Lancaster University
  • University of Leeds
  • University of Manchester

UCAT or BMAT?

Most medical schools require either BMAT or another aptitude test, UCAT. If you are uncertain whether to take BMAT or UCAT, explore which schools you are most interested in first.

We also recommend that you take an assessment of both tests and see which one matches your strong suit. Contact us and we will send you mock tests for a taste of both.
