Important information about BMAT – October 2022
Both the registration deadline and the test date are earlier than in previous years.
Please also note that BMAT will be a pen-and-paper test this year.
The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a 2-hour medical admissions assessment used by certain universities. It’s designed to test your thinking skills, your ability to apply scientific knowledge and your communication skills.
Alongside other parts of the application process, BMAT is used to help select candidates for medical and health-related degree programmes.
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.
* Both UK/EU fee status students and International students will need to sit BMAT for 2022 entry.
** If you’re applying to Thai universities, please visit their websites to check application details, as nationality or other restrictions may apply.
*** Keele University and Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine will discontinue using BMAT after the 2022 test session (for 2023 admission).
† If you're applying to Nazarbayev University School of Medicine, please contact them for information.
