What is a good score?

Questions in Sections 1 and 2 are worth 1 mark each. Total raw marks for each section are converted to BMAT’s scale, which runs from 1 (low) to 9 (high). Typical BMAT candidates will score around 5.0, roughly half marks. The best candidates will score around 6.0, and a few exceptional candidates will score higher than 7.0.

Writing Tasks in Section 3 are marked by two examiners. Each examiner gives two scores – one for quality of content (on a scale of 0–5), and one for quality of written English (on the scale A, C, E).


Do remember that you can only apply to 4 medical schools as part of your 5 UCAS choices, taking the August test ensures you know your score before you apply. However, since some universities do not accept the August test results, do make sure you research beforehand and choose a test date accordingly. You wouldn’t want to miss the chance of attaining an admissions chance – be sure to check the university’s requirements before registering for the BMAT.
