BMAT Test Dates 2020

Last updated : 16 October 2019

Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing has yet to release the officially BMAT test dates for 2020. Typically, there will be two BMAT test dates – August and November. The registration dates will differ for both test dates.

You must only take BMAT once in an admissions cycle. You are not allowed to take the BMAT on both test dates. In cases where one or more of the universities/courses you are applying to do not accept August results, you MUST take the test in November.

BMAT Timeline for Applicants in 2020

The listed dates below are all tentative.

BMAT August 2020

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.
