Your applications to UK Medicine & Dentistry courses will be submitted through UCAS. Since the UCAS application deadline falls on October 15th, we would generally recommend you sit for the BMAT in August. This way, you would receive your BMAT results before the UCAS application deadline, and make an informed decision.
Do remember that you can only apply to 4 medical schools as part of your 5 UCAS choices, taking the August test ensures you know your score before you apply. However, since some universities do not accept the August test results, do make sure you research beforehand and choose a test date accordingly. You wouldn’t want to miss the chance of attaining an admissions chance – be sure to check the university’s requirements before registering for the BMAT.
If you do not take the test in August, you can take the BMAT in November instead, as long as the university/course of your choice accepts November results. Please remember, you can only take the BMAT ONCE in a year, either August or November.
Here’s the list of schools that ONLY accept the BMAT November test results. All other schools that accept the August test results also accept the November test results.
- University of Oxford – Medicine and BioMedical Sciences
- NTU – Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine
- Nazarbayev University School of Medicine
