BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT)
The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) gives you the chance to stand out from the crowd and show your potential to succeed on medical and health-related courses. It tests your ability to apply scientific and mathematical knowledge, as well as problem solving, critical thinking and written communication skills that are essential to university-level study.
Which BMAT test session do I need to take?
BMAT Test Format
Section 1: Thinking Skills
Generic skills in problem solving and critical thinking
32 multiple-choice questions in 60 minutes
Section 2: Scientific Knowledge and Applications
The ability to apply scientific knowledge typically covered in school science and mathematics by the age of 16 (for example, GCSE in the UK and IGCSE internationally)
27 multiple-choice questions in 30 minutes
Section 3: Writing Task
The ability to select, develop and organise ideas, and to communicate them in writing, concisely and effectively
One writing task from a choice of three questions in 30 minutes
How is BMAT Scored?
There is no pass/fail threshold for BMAT. You should simply aim for the best you can. It is worth noting that universities use BMAT scores in different ways. To find out more about how your BMAT scores will be used as part of the admissions process, contact the relevant institution(s).
Questions in Sections 1 and 2 are worth 1 mark each. Total raw marks for each section are converted to BMAT's scale, which runs from 1 (low) to 9 (high). Typical BMAT candidates will score around 5.0, roughly half marks. The best candidates will score around 6.0, and a few exceptional candidates will score higher than 7.0.
Writing Tasks in Section 3 are marked by two examiners. Each examiner gives two scores – one for quality of content (on a scale of 0–5), and one for quality of written English (on the scale A, C, E).
Combining the scores for Section 3: If the two marks for content are the same or no more than one mark apart, the candidate gets the average of the two marks. If the two marks for written English are the same or no more than one mark apart, the scores are combined like this: AA = A, AC = B, CC = C, CE = D and EE = E.
For example, a writing task given a 4C by one examiner and 4A by the other will get a final score of 4B. A writing task given 3C by one examiner and 2C by the other will receive a mark of 2.5C.

I have taught BMAT for several years since doing the exam myself in 2016 and have been a science and maths tutor for ten years. I have prepared students for BMAT each year since then. The years of teaching science more broadly have been useful in prepping students for BMAT as I have extensive knowledge of the science syllabus covered in the exam. In addition, my master's degree in the Philosophy of Science (from Cambridge university) uniquely positions me to teach the essay component of the exam, as medical and ethical debates are often completely new to the students I work with.
