Different medical schools in the UK require different tests to be taken – the UKCAT or BMAT. Based on the universities you wish to apply, you may accordingly have to take one or more of these tests. Therefore, it is important that you decide your target universities beforehand so that you are mentally prepared to take these tests earlier in the test cycle, if possible.

Make sure that you consult a professional before finalizing the tests you plan to take so that you roughly have an idea of which universities you are planning to apply to, which ones require certain marks on these tests, how close you are to the university’s expectations (based on your diagnostic test), and which ones you have a good chance of getting into.
