The University of Leeds does not hold any recorded information relevant to
your request. For your convenience we have responded to each of your
questions in turn below.

 

How do you place weightings on each section of the BMAT?

All parts of the BMAT are equally important in our decision and so are not
weighted.

so, what have been those scores for the past 3 admissions cycles?

We do not operate a cut off system for BMAT scores.
