If You Had an Issue During Your BMAT

If you were able to sit the BMAT but had an issue that affected your performance (e.g. a temporary illness or an injury), fill in the online form for Special Consideration.

If You Were Unable to Sit the BMAT at All

Some students were unable to take the BMAT on 4th November 2020 due to various reasons including COVID-19 and technical failure (e.g. a power cut).

There will not be any opportunity to retake the exam. You will need to submit an online form for Special Consideration, in the same way as if you had an issue during the test.

Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing (CAAT) will inform the universities on what had happened. Because these candidates were not able to take the test through no fault of their own, CAAT won’t be submitting a result as part of the special considerations form.

You should also contact the colleges or universities of your choice to discuss this issue further and they will be able to advise you on alternative arrangements. For example, some BMAT candidates have been contacted by their college/university advising them of alternative assessment.

How to Submit a Special Consideration

Requests for special consideration need to be made to the test centre, unless you sat the exam via remote proctoring, in which case you need to make an application directly.
