Its 120 minute examination divided over 3 Parts or Sections

Questions asked Sections 1 and 2 are worth 1 mark each. The test measures your success on a scale of 1 (Low) to 9 (High). The total raw marks for each section are converted to BMAT's scale. According to BMAT Official website, candidates with exceptional ability score 7.0 marks. While the best candidates score around 6 marks. Average students score 5 marks.

Part 3 of BMAT is Writing Tasks. This section is examined by two examiners. Test takes are graded by each examiner on two counts; 1) Quality of Content on a scale of 0 to 5, and 2) Quality of Written English on the Scale of A, C, E. Thus each examiner gives two scores.

Combining the scores for Section 3: If the two marks for content are the same or no more than one mark apart, the candidate gets the average of the two marks. If the two marks for written English are the same or no more than one mark apart, the scores are combined like this: AA = A, AC = B, CC = C, CE = D and EE = E.

For example, a writing task given a 4C by one examiner and 4A by the other will get a final score of 4B. A writing task given 3C by one examiner and 2C by the other will receive a mark of 2.5C.
