Important information about BMAT – November 2021
In 2021 BMAT – November will be a computer-based test in all countries except Singapore and Thailand. You should confirm with your school or test centre whether they will provide the computer or whether you need to bring your own.
In Singapore and Thailand BMAT – November will be taken as a paper-based test.
Details have been updated in these web pages.
Results from the BMAT – November 2021 session will be released on 26 November 2021.
You can check your BMAT results by logging into our Metritests system. Use the login details from your Confidential Results Information sheet, which you will be given on the day of the test.
Whether you need to share your results with universities or whether they will be shared automatically depends on which universities you have applied to. Check what you need to do below:
Your results are automatically sent to any BMAT universities that you informed your test centre about when registering for the test.
Can I add and/or remove universities before my results are released?
If you would like to make any changes to the universities you applied to, you will need to contact your test centre. Any amendments will need to be submitted to us by your Exams Officer in advance of the test date.
Your results are not sent to universities automatically. You need to select which universities you want to receive your results using our Metritests system.
Your results are valid until 31 July 2022, but please check with your chosen universities for any information about when they need the results, to make sure you share them in time for your application to be considered.
How to release your results to universities
Follow three easy steps:
What if I don’t use the Metritests system?
If you do not make your selection using the Metritests system, your test results will not be provided to the university.
Can I add and remove universities once the results are released?
Before results are released, you can add or remove selected universities. After this, once your results have been published, you cannot remove a university or course from the results website – the universities will instantly receive your results – but you can add further universities.
Can I send my results to universities I have not applied to?
For most universities, sharing results does not constitute an application, and your results will not be considered unless you have also made a formal application to the university. Please contact the universities directly on how to do this.
Your BMAT score will be used in different ways by universities as part of their admissions process. Most use your BMAT results alongside all aspects of your application. Others may use the results as a way to filter out candidates who did not achieve a certain score.
To find out how universities use BMAT results, visit the relevant department’s website or speak to them directly.

Applicants must only take BMAT once in an admissions cycle. Taking the test twice may be viewed by a university as an attempt to gain unfair advantage.
BMAT results are only valid in the year that the test is taken and cannot be carried over to a re-application.
Likewise, a candidate’s score from one year will not affect their chances of re-applying in later years, as each application is considered afresh.
Students are not expected to get everything right in BMAT, and a typical candidate will get about half of the questions correct.
BMAT scores are used differently by universities; some will place more importance on your results than others. Check with your university directly for more information.
Yes, you can submit a Results Enquiry up to five working days after the results are released.
If a candidate thinks a Malpractice case or a Results Enquiry outcome was incorrectly handled, they can submit an Appeal.
