History[edit] BMAT was developed by Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing in response to requests from academics at medical and veterinary schools for an assessment that would enable them to differentiate between applicants who appear equally well qualified and suited to the course, and provide a way of assessing the potential of students who have a range of different qualifications.[1] Initially, it was taken up by Oxford University for Medicine and Physiology (replacing the OMAT); the University of Cambridge for Medicine and Veterinary Science (replacing the MVAT) and University College London, for Medicine. Format[edit] BMAT is a 2-hour, pen-and-paper test, which consists of three sections. Section 3: Writing Task[edit] How to Properly Study for the UCAT. University Clinical Aptitude Test.

It is one of two main admissions tests used in the UK for medical, dental and other health-related courses, the other being the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT).

The University Clinical Aptitude Test (UCAT) is an admissions test used by a consortium of UK Universities for their medical and dental degree programmes.

UCAT Consortium

The UCAT helps universities to select applicants with the most appropriate mental abilities, attitudes and professional behaviours required for new doctors and dentists to be successful in their clinical careers. 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. In 2020 all candidates will have the choice to sit the test either at home using Pearson VUE’s online proctoring service (OnVUE) or (as in the past) at a Pearson VUE Test Centre. More detailed information about the UCAT 2020 can be found here. UCAT Universities - Requirements and Scores - UCAT - The Medic Portal. Each university uses UCAT differently.
