How did students score in Section 1 and Section 2?

Sections 1 and 2 are scored on the BMAT scale – from 1 (low) to 9 (high). As you can see in the table below (published by the Admissions Testing Service), most students score around 5, but 6 represents a comparatively high score and only a few students will score higher than 7.

How did students score in Section 3?

Section 3 is marked according to two criteria – quality of content (1 to 5) and quality of English (A to E). Here’s a breakdown of the scoring:

Section 3: Written English (scored A, C or E)

Section 3: Quality of Content (scored from 1 to 5)

The two scores for your essay are then averaged to give your final score. So, for instance, if one examiner gave you 2A and another marked your essay 3C, your average score would be 2.5B. If there is a significant discrepancy, your essay will be sent for remarking by a third examiner.

This year, most candidates scored a 3 for quality of content, and A for quality of English. You can see the scores in the graph below:
