this is for those of you conversant with the medical schools in the u.k and their policies towards the 4 yr program for graduate entry. i was looking at some schools website and they required the BMAT. but i've already taken the MCAT, so does the MCAT substitute for the BMAT.

No, it's a completely different exam. You have to take the BMAT.

Presuming you're applying for 2007 entry you would sit the BMAT in November 2006 (having already made your application prior to the October 15 2006 deadline.

The BMAT is very easy since it's aimed at British school leavers so it's aimed at GCSE level knowledge of the sciences (that's, I believe, grade 10 in the US) and then there's some general reasoning. If you sat the MCAT you will have no problem with the BMAT. Truly.

You can sit it in the US.

See here:

to find where your nearest centre will be. NB this list is for the 2006 entry exam which has already taken place, so it might change for next year.
