Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT)


The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a subject-specific admissions test taken by applicants to specific medicine, veterinary medicine and related courses (see list below). The BMAT examination is owned and administered by Cambridge Assessment, one of the world's largest assessment agencies. Cambridge are responsible for producing and marking the test, and also facilitate an extensive worldwide centre network at which candidates can sit the BMAT.

All candidates applying to the following institutions/courses are required to take BMAT:

The Royal Veterinary College: D100, D101, D102
Imperial College London: A100, B900, B9N2
University College London: A100
University of Cambridge*: A100, A101, D100
University of Oxford: A100, BC98

* Please note that it is not essential for applicants to the Cambridge Graduate course in Medicine (A101) to sit the BMAT, although applicants could use a successful result as part of their pre-medical requirements. For those candidates who are applying to the University of Bristol Veterinary Science (D100) course only, BUT NOT to any of the other BMAT-using institutions and courses, the BMAT will not be compulsory. Failure to sit the BMAT could result in an unsuccessful application to a candidate’s chosen institution, it is important that candidates refer to university websites, prospectuses, and UCAS for a definitive list of entry requirements.
