Hey, I am a little confused about something so according to last years cut off's (14.7) would mean I would have to get around a score of 6 in section 1 and 2 for e.g. and then like a 3 in the essay to be offered an interview however the average was only 4 for both sections so I would have to aim to get well above the average for an interview?

You won't. Everyone doing the BMAT will essentially be taking a risk by applying "blind".

No way?! I'm not even that short (5'4) it's jus cos my friends are giants :mad:. Ahhh ur score is super good don't stress I had an anxiety panic attack mid mine and thought my first section had gone terrible even tho it hadn't and messed up the rest so I ended up with 2600 (still weeping in some corner over it). I'm thinking two UCAT, two BMAT. Honestly as long as I end up studying medicine I'll be happy but I would love to go to Imperial or BSMS. Wby!! Also, as your a graduate how old are you

Please if you fulfill the requirements regarding BMAT, is it sure that they invite you for interview ?

BSMS set their bmat requirements after ranking everyone's score. Also, they have gcse and A-level requirements that you have to fufil.

I guess your not thaat short. Nahh the interims are so high this yr so I don't even know. That sounds like a horrible experience, tho you could still apply to a few UCAT unis with that score! But yeah I'm sure you'll smash the BMAT and get a place either way. I'm thinking Bsms, SGUL and Newcastle so far. I 20
