The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is used by universities around the world to help select applicants for medical, dental, biomedical and veterinary degree programmes.

It tests your ability to apply scientific and mathematical knowledge, as well as problem solving, critical thinking and written communication skills that are essential to university-level study.

BMAT gives you the opportunity to stand out from the crowd and show universities what you can do.



The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test used by a consortium of UK and international universities to help select applicants for their medical and dental degree programmes.

It is used in collaboration with other admissions processes such as the UCAS application and academic qualifications. It is also your opportunity to stand out from other applicants and demonstrate your aptitude for a demanding programme of study.

The UCAT is a computer-based test, delivered in Pearson VUE test centres throughout the UK and worldwide.
