Important information about BMAT – September 2021
Due to the ongoing challenges of the global Covid-19 pandemic, BMAT – September will not go ahead in 2021.
For details about an alternative test session and all of the latest information, please visit our dedicated Covid-19 page.
For BMAT – September, results are delivered through our Metritests system. You must also use the Metritests system to select the institutions that will receive your results.
When the results are released, you will be able to view your results by logging in to the Metritests account you created to book your test. You can then decide whether to share your September results with participating institutions.
You are responsible for sharing your results via Metritests. Universities will not consider results provided in any other way.
You should only share your results with institutions you have applied to or are planning to apply to.
To share your results with your chosen institution(s):
Before results are released, you can add or remove selected institutions. After this, once your results have been shared with an institution, you cannot remove that institution from your list, but you can add further institutions. You may therefore wish to wait until you receive your results, before deciding which institutions to share your results with.
Applicants must only take one BMAT in an admissions cycle. Taking the test twice may be viewed by an institution as an attempt to gain unfair advantage. If you take BMAT in both September and November it may result in scores for both tests being shared with all BMAT institutions which you are applying to.
Please note: BMAT results for both the September and November sessions are only valid for the year the test is taken and cannot be carried over to a re-application. Likewise, each application is considered afresh, and your score from one year will not affect your chances if re-applying in later years.
To find out how your chosen institutions use BMAT scores, please visit their websites.
