Additional Admissions Tests

Additional Admissions Tests may be an entry requirement for certain courses at a number of universities.  Students need to research these tests very carefully and their preparation should include becoming familiar with the test paper format and required answer style.  Timing is also of utmost importance, therefore it is advisable to use practice tests available online to assist with this.

It is the responsibility of the student to research what is required for the course they intend to apply for and to register as appropriate.

The main Additional Admissions Tests are:

The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) for Medical and Dental Degrees
The UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) is used in the selection process by a consortium of UK university Medical and Dental Schools.
The test helps universities to make more informed choices from amongst the many highly-qualified applicants who apply for their medical and dental degree programmes.

BMAT BioMedical Admissions Test
The BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a subject-specific admissions test taken by applicants to certain medicine, veterinary medicine and related courses.

LNAT The National Admissions Test for Law
