Once candidates submit their UCAS application, our admissions team will email all applicants inviting them to activate and access the University of Brighton applicant area. They will also email to invite applicants to submit any evidence of contextual data. The admissions team will then review applications. Applicants meeting or predicted to meet our academic requirements will be ranked by their BMAT score, with the top ranking candidates invited to interview.
Please note that we will not consider applicants whose BMAT scores do not fulfil ALL of the following criteria:
- Section one: a score of at least 3 or higher
- Section two: a score of at least 6 or higher
- Section three: a score of at least 2.5 C or higher
BSMS aims to offer 30% of its interviews to candidates with contextual data flags and applicants with contextual data are ranked separately.

Admission interviews will take place in January and February 2024.
The interviews will be hosted remotely via Zoom videoconferencing software, as they did in 2021, 2022 and 2023.
Zoom’s breakout rooms function allows us to run MMIs in a similar manner as we would in-person, consisting of five discussion stations with a variety of interviewers.
You can see an example of an MMI discussion (held in-person) by watching the video below.
To prepare for the MMIs, you may wish to reflect on your work experience referring to the skills and values attributes needed to study medicine published by the Medical Schools Council.
Ahead of your interview, please you check your internet speed (https://www.speedtest.net/) and consider whether you have access to a suitable space for your interview in your place of living. If you cannot access reliable internet or a comfortable and quiet location, we suggest requesting an interview space at your college or school.
Please make sure that your Zoom is running on the latest software version to avoid technical issues and delays on the morning of your MMI.
At the beginning of the interview, you must present a photo ID to confirm your identity. It is essential that the document clearly states your name in English and the photo is clear.
If you do not have your form of identification ready to hand, you will not be interviewed and you will risk forfeiting your place.
