About the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT)
The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a subject-specific admissions test for applicants to medicine, veterinary medicine and similar courses at universities where the majority of applicants have followed a predominantly UK-based school science curriculum.
The BMAT is a 2-hour, pen-and-paper test divided into three sections. It does not require a lot of extra study as it is a test of skills and knowledge that learners are expected to have already. The BMAT is owned and administered by the Admissions Testing Service.
As of 2013,
the Admissions Testing Service is working with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) to use the BMAT for graduate entry Medicine (A100). Biomedical or allied science graduates should hold, or expect to hold, a first or upper second class honours degree and be expected to demonstrate an adequate knowledge of biology and chemistry. GCSE Maths and English at Grade B is required. Graduates who do not meet these criteria will need to demonstrate an adequate knowledge of biology and chemistry, either by taking the appropriate A levels or an accredited Access to Medicine course. GCSE Maths and English at Grade B is required. These graduates will NOT be required to take BMAT.
For the full entry requirements, visit Brighton and Sussex's Medical School website. Details of how to register for the BMAT can be found here.
The BMAT is divided into three sections:
- Aptitude and Skills.
- Scientific Knowledge and Applications.
- Writing Task.
