BMAT

Used
How?A numerical ranking is established based on GCSE performance & BMAT results. This forms an initial shortlist. Equal weighting is not ascribed to all sections. In 2016, weightings were: Section 1 = 40%, Section 2 = 40%, and Section 3 = 20%. In calculating the Section 3 score, double weight was ascribed to the ‘Quality of Content’ score and single weight given to the ‘Quality of English’ score (with A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, E=1, and X=0).Used alongside Personal Statement and grades. Admissions Tutors use the BMAT results in conjunction with the other elements of students' applications to decide which candidates will be invited to interview and to help with deciding who should be offered places on the course. Students who achieve higher BMAT results are more likely to be invited to interview but there isn't a 'pass' mark for the BMAT at Cambridge. As an indication, last year around 79% of candidates who scored an average of 5.0 or above in Sections 1 and 2 were interviews, and around 33% of those scoring below 5.0 were interviewed.

Entry Requirements

GCSE Subjects RequiredThere are no specific GCSE requirements for Medicine, though higher grades can help to make your application more competitive. Successful applicants typically have a high proportion of A and A* grades (grade 7-9) However, in order to be adequately equipped for the BMAT, and if Biology, Physics or Mathematics have not been taken to A-Level (or equivalent), applicants will need to have received a basic education in those subjects (for example at least a grade C/4 at GCSE).Grade C (Grade 5) or above in Double Science and Maths (two single awards in Biology and Physics can be substituted for double science).
A-Level Subjects RequiredAt least A grade in both Chemistry and at least one from Biology, Physics or Mathematics (Critical Thinking and General Studies are not considered). They have no preference for whether the third or fourth A-level subject (or further subject in equivalent qualifications) is a science or not.A-Levels in Chemistry and one of Biology/Human Biology, Physics, Mathematics. Please note that in the past three admissions rounds, 98% of applicants for Medicine (A100) offered three or more science/mathematics A Levels and, of these, 30% were successful in obtaining a place. Of the two per cent of applicants who offered only two science/mathematics A-Levels, 8% were successful in gaining a place.
