Our admissions office reviews applications. Qualifying applications which are flagged with contextual data are ranked according to their BMAT results, with the top ranking candidates invited to interview. BSMS aims to offer 30% of its interviews to candidates with contextual data flags. All remaining applications are then ranked according to their BMAT results, with the highest ranking candidates invited to interview.

Step 4

Multiple mini interviews (MMIs) are held during BSMS admissions days, which we aim to hold on Wednesdays and Saturdays between January and March.
