Once candidates submit their UCAS application, our admissions team will email all applicants inviting them to activate and access 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. Our BMAT cut-off point for 2019 entry was a cumulative score of 16.1.
Please note that we will not consider applicants, without contextual data, 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 3 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 thus applicants with contextual data are ranked separately.
Multiple mini interviews (MMIs) are held during BSMS admissions days, which we aim to hold in December 2020 and January 2021.
Find out what to expect by watching our example MMI discussion below.
