BMAT has 3 sections, 1&2 are scored from 1-9 with 9 being the best, section 3 the essay is ranked out of 5 for quality, and scored from A-E for fluency if wnglish
4 Sections (Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, Decision Making and Abstract Reasoning) are scored anywhere between 300-900. This scoring is based on students who took the test in 2006. So 900 doesn't mean full marks, just the highest score that somebody in 2006 got and 300 the lowest. 600 is average.
1 last section is Situational Judgment which is scored in bands.
Band 1 is the highest and Band 4 is the lowest.
Section 1: Aptitude and Skills scored from 1-9
Usually involves: Problem Solving, Data Analysis and Critical Thinking.
Section 2: Scientific Knowledge and Applications scored from 1-9.
Includes: Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths
Section 3: Essay (less than 1 side of A4).
Scored from 1-5 on content alongside A-E on written communication.
Given a choice from a selection of questions which can be on anything (medical ethics, philosophy, veterinary science, quote from someone, etc)
