7.5
Does that vary for each uni ? Basically you add 5 marks + whatever you got in section 3 ?

each BMAT uni scores it differently. BSMS is quite unusual putting extra weight on section 3

Ah I see so basically someone with overall score of 13 has no chance 😞

no one knows because it depends on the cohort.

It is worth noting that they do put cut-offs for individual sections too. Say if scored really high in S1 (eg. 7.5) but low in S2 (eg. 2.0), you may not get interview, even if you have the same combined score as someone that got 5.0 and 4.5 respectively. Obviously S3 is included in this too, and this is just an example - just a heads-up.

(This is what was told at an admissions lecture on an open day )

After interviews are offers based solely on performance or a holistic approach with BMAT scores factored in?

Thats what I was told. I am hoping this year cut off is lower. Seems like alot of people in this forum did pretty well so most likely it will be higher 😔

Hi where did you see this information that BMAT is factored in with interview performance? I see on MMI advice they gave this year that "Please note that it is expected that applicants achieving Good in each station will be offered a place to study with BSMS." This makes me believe its based on (good/excellent) interview performance only?

My BMAT results were not shared with Leeds and BSMS. Anybody else out there with the same problem? They emailed me and asked me to sent it again via email, but i´m really worried. I shared them way before the deadline. I actually did it as soon as I had access to them. Do you think it can affect my candidature? Ps: only the Bmat august test takers have to share their results, so don't panic if you didn't.Thank you in advance

Does BSMS only use interviews as a deciding factor of whether people get offers? or are there other factors?

I don't know much about the interviews but on their website, they don't mention that internationals are not required to sit the BMAT.

YES I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM!! I sat my test in August and shared it ASAP. I sent them a pdf copy via the portal and they said they would continue assessing my application. Don't worry it'll be fine! I contacted Leeds as well and they said it's not a problem!!!

I was told by the admission officer. Jamie told me the interview is solely based on bmat scores.

They mentioned it if you check right now. It was mentioned around September too!

I'm pretty disappointed with my results tbh as I thought it had gone better than it did. I've got a score of 16.5 using their system, how likely do you think an interview is for me?

I think you'll defo land an interview. BMAT 2019 averages are low so don't worry. Cut off should be lower/around last year which was 16.1
