BMAT Results 2019: 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.
Here’s how students scored in Section 1:

BMAT Results 2019: 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
Band A: Good use of English – clear, fluent, good use of grammar and vocabulary
Band C: Reasonably clear use of English – reasonably fluent, some errors
Band E: Rather weak use of English – not easy to follow, faulty grammar
Section 3: Quality of Content (scored from 1 to 5)
Score 1: the essay has some bearing on the question but does not address it fully
Score 2: addresses most of the question, but has significant elements of confusion
Score 3: reasonably well-argued, may have weakness in the argument
Score 4: good answer with few weaknesses, all aspects of the question are addressed
Score 5: excellent answer with no significant weaknesses
Each essay is double marked. For each scale, if the two scores awarded are the same or occupy adjacent positions on the scale, the scores are combined to give the final mark.
If there is a larger discrepancy in the scores on either of the two scales, the essay is marked for a third time, and the final mark awarded is checked by the BMAT Assessment Manager.
The composite mark for the quality of English is derived by combining the two scores as follows: AA = A, AC = B, CC = C, CE = D, EE = E. The composite mark for the quality of content is derived by calculating the average of the two scores
