Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is working in conjunction with the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities and Research (MIUR) to develop and deliver the International Medical Admissions Test (IMAT). IMAT is a 100 minute subject-specific admissions test in English for applicants to medicine and surgery and dentistry courses. These courses are taught in English, with places open to both home and international students.
IMAT can be taken at authorised centres all over the world. See How to register for more information.
The test does not require a lot of extra study as it is a test of skills and knowledge that learners are expected to have already.
Please visit the MIUR website for detailed information about the test in the decree.
IMAT is a pen-and-paper test. It is divided into four sections:
Logical Reasoning and General Knowledge
Please note, scores will be reported separately for Logical Reasoning and General Knowledge.
For more detailed information about the format of IMAT 2020, see the IMAT test specification.

An overall total score will be reported, together with a score on each section.
