The BMAT is used by 7 medical schools in the UK to evaluate applicants’ academic qualifications for their medical programs. Amongst the seven, The University of Cambridge and The University of Oxford are two of the universities that require their candidates to take the BMAT.

Before inviting candidates for interviews, many universities wait for the BMAT results to be announced. Because the BMAT is taken significantly later than the UCAT, the interview offers would be somewhat delayed.
