Universities faced with the task of selecting applicants who can succeed on science-based courses can benefit from a new video from experts in Cambridge. The video produced by Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing gives an overview of the BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and explains how it can also be used as a key student recruitment tool that supports widening participation programmes.
BMAT is developed by experts at Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing. It is used by universities around the world to help them select students with the potential to succeed on demanding medical, dental and other related degrees. The new video explores how the test can help recruiters meet the challenges they face when selecting students for science-based courses.
Andy Chamberlain, Head of Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing, said:
‘BMAT helps universities to identify students who will thrive on their course by giving them a better understanding of each applicant. It covers the key skills people need for success on a science-based course and can be used to support widening participation programmes. The test is designed to be accessible to everyone regardless of their background as we offer all candidates access to comprehensive free preparation materials.’
The new video includes interviews with admissions tutors from around the world who currently use BMAT. They explain how the test can be used to help predict a student’s performance, irrespective of their educational background.
Professor Adeeba Kamarulzaman, Dean of Medicine at the University of Malaya, says that ‘BMAT allows us to level the playing field’ when judging applicants from different countries and with different qualifications.
John Lacambria Oliver, International Project Manager at the University of Navarra’s School of Medicine, in Spain, also welcomes BMAT’s global network of test centres, which he says ‘helps in recruiting candidates for our medical school’.
