To beat the BMAT you need to make sure you’ve registered and booked it, know everything you need to know and start revising; the earlier the better.
Unlike the UCAT, the BMAT has a set test date per cycle twice a year. The next test date is Wednesday 4th November but you need to have registered by Thursday 1st October which is the registration closing date. The entry fee is £59 and the test can be taken in various exam centres around the UK.
To register and find out where your nearest exam centre is, visit the official BMAT website here. Your BMAT results will be released on Friday 27th November. Friday 4th December 2020 is the last date for BMAT November results enquiries.
If English is not your first language you will NOT be allowed extra time or permitted the use of a bilingual dictionary. Make sure you are confident enough with your English reading and writing skills before registering for the BMAT.
The whole BMAT is 2 hours long with no rest breaks. Access arrangements for candidates with additional needs wanting to apply for extra time or other support are available. For further details take a look at our BMAT Access Arrangements: What you need to know article.
The BMAT has three different sections. Section 1: Thinking Skills. Section 2: Scientific Knowledge and Applications. Section 3: Writing task.
The BMAT is a handwritten test. Sections 1 & 2 require the use of a pencil while section 3 instructs you to use a black ballpoint pen. We suggest taking 3 of each in case of emergencies and an eraser for any last-minute edits on sections 1 & 2.
UPDATE: The BMAT - November 2020 will be computer-based unless you will be applying for admission in Thailand or Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore.
You can cancel your BMAT and receive a full refund if cancelled no later than two weeks before the test date. However, if you cancel within the two weeks running up to the test date you may only receive 25% of the fee paid while cancelling the day before or on the day of the test date is not possible.
