Administering our tests
You are here:
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is monitoring the situation with the spread of Novel Coronavirus very closely. Our top priority is to help to protect the health and safety of our candidates and their families, and of the staff in our centres.
We will do everything we can to minimise disruption for candidates, centres and the institutions using our tests, while complying fully with international best practice and the advice of national and local healthcare authorities.
As the information about COVID-19 is changing rapidly, we will provide regular updates on this webpage as the situation unfolds. We understand you will have concerns around whether or not our tests are taking place, therefore we have provided detailed information about our test sessions below:
Following the UK government announcement on 18 March that public examinations will not take place, we have been reviewing ways in which candidates can take STEP Mathematics safely, both within and outside the UK. See the latest updates to each individual STEP paper below.
STEP 1 will not go ahead. For candidates who have already registered for this test paper, please speak to your Exams Officer about arranging a refund. Centres will be contacted to ensure they do not accept any more registrations for STEP 1 and will also be given further information about refund arrangements.
STEP 2 and STEP 3
STEP 2 and STEP 3 will go ahead, however, to ensure the safety of our candidates and centres, the tests will not be run in the usual way. Further information about how the tests will run will be available as soon as we have it.
Currently we do not expect the COVID-19 outbreak to affect the BMAT – September test session. We will continue to keep you updated if the situation changes.
Currently we do not expect the COVID-19 outbreak to affect the International Medical Admissions Test (IMAT), which is due to take place on 10 September 2020. For more details please visit the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR)’s website.
BMAT – November, TMUA, all University of Oxford admissions tests (including MAT, TSA and ELAT), all University of Cambridge pre-interview assessments (including CTMUA, TSA and ELAT).
We do not expect the COVID-19 outbreak to disrupt the running of these tests. We will continue to keep you updated if the situation changes.
We ask that you do not contact our Helpdesk during this time as they have no further information at present. We will publish any news as soon as it becomes available.
We will also share our latest updates on our social channels. Please follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn.
