Unlike most other university courses getting into medicine has its own unique pathway and requirements. Not only do students need to be academically gifted but, need to demonstrate a range of attributes and skills necessary to succeed in their careers.
The UCAT (previously known as UKCAT) and BMAT are entry exams required for enrollment into Medicine. UCAT exams are accepted by the majority of Universities offering Medicine. Whereas, BMAT exams are accepted by a smaller group of universities – notably; Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College London (ICL), and Leed’s all require a BMAT exam.
These exams are completed a year prior to entry to University, with UCAT having an earlier due date than the BMAT. It is crucial for students to start revising for these tests as soon as possible to ensure they don’t fall under the cut off scores for universities.
