When to Book the BMAT

BMAT

2020-03-02

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.

Important BMAT dates:

Unlike the UCAT, the BMAT has a set test date per cycle twice a year. The next test date is Saturday 5th September 2020 at 10:00 BST but you need to have registered by Sunday 9th August 2020 which is the registration closing date. The entry fee is £85 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 25th September 2020 at 9:00 BST and the deadline for sharing these results with your chosen medical schools is Tuesday 20th October 2020.

5 quick facts you need to know about your BMAT:

No extra time allowed:

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

No time to waste:

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.

It comes in 3 parts:

The BMAT has three different sections. Section 1: Thinking Skills. Section 2: Scientific Knowledge and Applications. Section 3: Writing task.

Come prepared:

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.

Refunds:

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.
