As announced by Cambridge Assessment last year, the BMAT will no longer be offered from 2024 onwards.

Therefore, medical schools will not ask for your BMAT score in the future, even if they have traditionally preferred the BMAT over the UCAT (Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, etc.).

The UCAT is likely to become the de facto choice for medical school admissions in the near future.

Why Is The BMAT No Longer Offered?

Cambridge Assessment does not cite a reason for discontinuing the BMAT, but the small number of test-takers may have been one of the major factors.

How Does This Affect My Medical School Application?

In the past, students who applied to Oxbridge or NTU (Singapore) were required to take both the BMAT alongside the UCAT for other medical programs. From 2024 onwards, you will likely only need to prepare for the UCAT instead of both tests.

At the moment, the best thing to do is to keep up with schools’ latest application information, and estimate UCAT scores based on last year’s benchmarks.

The following schools will fully switch to the UCAT: Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, Brighton & Sussex, UCL, and Lancaster.
