Key Takeaways From 2021 Scores:

  • A third of people got an average score for Section 1, and a quarter got an average score for Section 2 (between 5.0 and 5.9).
  • Roughly one in 10 people got a high score in each section (6.0 and above).
  • The most common score (~40%) was 3 for quality of content and most (~80%) got an A for their quality of English.

What Does Your Score Mean For Your Application?

Each BMAT uni may use your score differently when shortlisting candidates to invite to interview.

Brighton and Sussex Medical School won’t consider applicants who score below 3 in Section 1, below 6 in Section 2, and below 2.5C in Section 3.

Imperial has a cut-off score, but while it’s not been revealed what this is for 2022 entry, they say you can use last year’s as a guide. Home students had to get at least 10.9 across both sections, with a minimum score of 3.5 in each. For Section 3, the minimum was 2.5C. For international students, it was 13.3 with a minimum of 4.0 in each section, and 3C.

At Lancaster, applicants are ranked by score and those with the highest scores will be invited to interview.

UCL uses your BMAT score alongside the rest of your application when shortlisting candidates. They don’t review your BMAT score in isolation. This is also the case for University of Cambridge and University of Leeds. At the University of Oxford, colleges interview applicants blind of their BMAT score, which is instead used when deciding who to make offers to.
