    Hi everyone,
    Since I couldn't find a thread for this, I made one.
    How did everyone find the bmat today?
    What's everyone's first choice?
    From what I've heard BSMS ranks according to BMAT and an overall score is given. Cut off has to be met but if you have contextual data the minimum score requires is less .
    Now that BMAT is done, how long will it take for us to hear back ?

    Hey I did my BMAT back in September and ended up getting 17.3, but at the time I was convinced I'd failed! BSMS is my first choice, but I've also applied to Southampton (:heart:), UEA and St. George's. How about you?

    Yep, BSMS doesn't read personal statements, they just base interviews on BMAT ranking. the cutoff last year was around 17, but it's A LOT lower for contextual applicants (around 14, from what I've heard). Last year they started offering interviews on the 5th of December, so still about a month to go

    Hey, well done for your bmat. Hopefully the cut off scores will be around the same so you'll be fine.
    I did my bmat on Thursday not sure how I did haha.

    How do you guys think the bmat will be judged this year, since there were 2 sittings? Will there be a separate cut off for each sitting or just one general one ?

    Thank you I hope so, but I feel like you need to be a grade 8 violinist who speaks 6 languages and has been doing voluntary work since they left the womb to have a real chance at medicine

    I did the September one and I found section 2 IMPOSSIBLE whereas October people have been saying that action 1 was terrible, but 2 was fine. Clearly the difficulty wasn't the same, but idk if they'll have 2 cut-offs.

    BSMS automatically rejects you if you get below 3 in any section. You can get 17 in so many ways, but this is what I got in September:
    Section 1: 5.1
    Section 2: 3.7 (omg it was so hard)
    Section 3: 3.5A (the A is with 5 points)

    I have applied to BSMS, along with Cardiff, Exeter and Nottingham.
    I did the EB and I have fairly good achieved grades, but I really have no idea how the BMAT will turn out... :/
