Administering our tests

Want to know about our alternative test date? Find out more about BMAT – August.
You need to be registered as a candidate by a test centre (you cannot register yourself for the test).
You must take the test at a centre that is authorised to run Admissions Testing tests (for most candidates this is their own school or college). Check with your Exams Officer if your school or college is already registered as a centre that can run our tests.
If you are not able to take the test at school or college, you need to find an authorised open test centre where you can take the test.
If your school or college is not already registered as a centre, they can apply to become a test centre. The deadline for applications to become a centre is 30 September.
If you cannot find a test centre within reasonable travelling distance of your home town, please read our Support Site article.
See BMAT dates and costs. Your school/college/test centre may charge an additional administration fee for running the test – please check with them.
Reminder: The 15 October deadline is the last date for centres to make entries, so you will need to register with a centre well before then. Centres may set their own deadline in advance for accepting entries, so please make sure you speak to them as early as possible.
Please note that by registering and taking the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT), you are agreeing that data provided as part of the entry or admission process may be passed to Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing and any institution involved in your application for a place at one of the BMAT institutions, and also that your data may be anonymised and used for research purposes (including by the General Medical Council for the purposes of the Medical Act 1983 and the UKMED Development Group). You also agree that if you obtain a place on a course where BMAT results form part of the admissions process, then your University may supply Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing with data about your application and results in subsequent assessments at that University, unless you specifically notify the University in writing. We store personal data securely and will ensure if test-taker data is used in publications or research that it is used anonymously.
