BMAT Key Dates 2023
In the past years, there were two BMAT test dates, one in September and the other in November. In 2022, Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing only released one date for the BMAT – 18 October 2022. Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing has yet to release 2023’s test date(s).
All test takers please take note: Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is to withdraw from running BMAT with effect from 2024-5. For the academic year 2024/25 onwards, the seven UK medical schools that use BMAT tests as part of their admissions process (Brighton and Sussex, Imperial, Lancaster, UCL, Cambridge, Leeds and Oxford), Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, NTU, as well as medical and healthcare schools in other countries will put alternative arrangements in place.
“I managed to get an offer from NUS and NTU and the deadline to make the decision was 24th May so I’ve made the decision to go to NUS.
I really think Prep Zone helped me a lot. It was the reason I got a good UCAT score and a pretty decent BMAT score. The interview preparation was the most helpful of all and when I went for my local med school interviews, it was a lot more doable for me because I had so much practice. All the teachers were super nice, supportive and accommodative and I really appreciate all the help. I think the MMI stimulation really helped me as well and it allowed me to be less nervous before the real interview.
Thank you so much.”
“All the trainers at Prep Zone were always available to provide valuable advice so I could do the best I could in my UCAT and BMAT.”
“The classes were good and the facilitators were very knowledgeable.”
“I just wanted to say thank you for all the course material and guidance from the BMAT trainers. The weekend classes together with the practice tests made preparing for the test a lot more manageable. Really couldn’t have gotten these scores without it all. Once again, thank you!”
