Currently thinking to apply to Medicine at Imperial, Kings College and Queen Mary's. As you may already be aware Imperial requires BMAT and the other two UKCAT.

Would it be wise to do both or would I be better off if I adjust the course I apply for at Imperial?

Why do you want to avoid the BMAT?

Wait and see what you get in the UKCAT. If you do really well maybe you'll apply to more UKCAT unis, if you don't then you're forced down the BMAT route anyway.

BMAT is generally considered to be harder and contains a science and essay writing section among others. UKCAT is more like you would imagine an intelligence test, sections on reasoning, maths and English. You have to do different tests for different medical schools. You do the UKCAT before you apply and the BMAT after you apply
