When Will I Find Out My Results?

You will receive a PDF of your results shortly after sitting the exam. For example, in 2016, the exam was on 2nd November 2016 and results were released on 25th November. Your results are then available to download for 60 days afterwards. Your results will then be sent to any BMAT universities you’ve applied to. Your score is only valid for the year that you sit the test.

How Will Universities Use My Results?

Each university will use your score differently. Some universities, like Oxford, will not ascribe equal weighting to all sections of the exam, whereas others, like Imperial or Brighton and Sussex, have a cut-off or minimum score per section before inviting students to interview. At Brighton and Sussex, the cut-off was 16 – and Imperial required a minimum of 4.5 in Section 1 and 2, and a score of 2.5 and Grade B in Section 3.
