Administering our tests
BMAT – September will take place on Saturday 9 September 2017 at selected test centres in the UK. This is an alternative test date for the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT). The September test will have the same format, be at the same level of difficulty, and will be scored in the same way as the November test.
BMAT is a 2-hour, pen-and-paper test divided into three sections. You can see what is in each section below.
Section 1: Aptitude and Skills
Section 2: Scientific Knowledge and Applications
Section 3: Writing Task
For more detailed information about the format of BMAT, see the BMAT test specification.
The September test session will be available at selected authorised test centres in the UK. Currently, students who are applying for the following Medicine and Dentistry courses can take the test in September:
** Important information for University of Oxford applicants:
Please note, the University of Oxford will only accept BMAT results from the November session for A100 Medicine and BC98 Biomedical Sciences. If you are applying for either of these courses at Oxford, you must take the test in November.
* Please note, international applicants (those who are not ordinarily resident in the UK or EU) to Brighton and Sussex Medical School are not required to sit BMAT.
† Applies to 'overseas for fees' applicants only.
‡ If you’re applying to Thammasat, we encourage you to visit the university’s website to check application details, as restrictions may apply.
Applicants taking BMAT in September 2017 are able to share their results with the University of Navarra (for applications to Medicine).
What if I don’t take BMAT in September?
Students who do not take the test in September can take BMAT in November instead, at test centres around the world. This session will run in the usual way on Thursday 2 November 2017.
Students must only take BMAT once.
If one or more of the universities you are applying to do not accept September results, you must take the test in November.
