    You'll need to submit your Personal Statement by October 2017 (presuming you're applying for Medicine/Veterinary) so it'd be best to start it in the summer of next year. You'll do the BMAT in November (or maybe late October) 2017.

    Hi kittycraig22

    Always a very good idea to familiarise yourself with all your important dates well ahead of time, as you are doing!

    Assuming that you are applying for medicine or dentistry you will need to submit your UCAS application, including personal statement, by 15th October 2017. You would sit your BMAT after that, in November 2017.

    I hope that helps. Give me a shout if we can answer any more questions for you.
