Around 425 applicants are invited to interview each year.

As part of the process to decide which applicants are called to interview, we establish a ranking on the basis of contextualised BMAT results.

You should bear in mind that as we short-list the same number of people every year, there is no actual cut-off for BMAT score.

All applicants who do not make the initial short-list are then reviewed in detail, taking into account any individual circumstances that might indicate that their academic performance is likely to underestimate their potential. If you feel that you underperformed at GCSE because of extreme circumstances beyond your control, it is imperative that these extenuating circumstances are brought to our attention. See: 

If you underperformed during BMAT because of extreme circumstances you should inform Cambridge Assessment within 5 working days of sitting the test. See the BMAT website for further information. Please note we will not consider any extenuating circumstances not declared to Cambridge Assessments using the appropriate procedure.

Please note, the University of Oxford will not accept BMAT results from the September sitting for A100 Medicine.
