Anyone from the UK? Help?

All right, I'm looking into applying to Cambridge University from the United States. But, I didn't realize there were so many colleges and things I'd never heard of!

1. What are the BMATs? I want to stab a guss that maybe it's similar to the US's SAT? Are they hard? What's on them?

2. Is there any specific 'college' in Cambridge that's known for it's medical program, or that is easier/harder to get into, more prestigious, etc? I know Cambridge itself is presitgious for medicine - but what goes on with the colleges? That's got me confused.

3. Will I have to fly in to take the BMAT?

I've been trying to look this up on my own for hours - I'm so confused! Eep!

Thanks for any help, guys!

I'm from the UK

But, I know nothing about this. However, I have found this link about BMAT (bio-medical admission test). It's got a FAQ's page as well. It also tells you where the centres are. I can't help you with Cambridge colleges. The colleges are really where people live and socialise, as well as being taught, i.e. some colleges are known for being particularly sporty, or are women only (I'm not sure that there are any of those left), or have particular facilities. Each college does its own prospectus (or at least they used to) which will tell you about it. You have to pick the one that's right for you. They usually do open days, but if you come over beforehand, you could write to ask whether you could have a look around.

I don't know anyone who went to Cambridge, only Oxford, so I can't tell you about it or put you in touch with anyone useful.

Hope this is of some assistance.

Try emailing

Did you look on the Cambridge University website? Its
I didn't have a proper look around (and maybe you've looked there already), but they have info on admissions and courses.

OP back

I've tried emailing them, however, they suggested that I email the "admissions tutor" (we don't have those here lol) from the college I want to apply to - only issue is..I have no idea which I SHOULD apply to.

I was just wondering if "word" went around about the colleges. Which is the "best", the most "medically based", the most "prestigious", the "easiest to get into", the one that accepts the most international students, etc.

Since I want to go into medicine, I want to make sure I'm applying to the right school. *shrug*

So much confusion. :[

Thanks for the links 6.13, that opened my eyes up to more universities in the UK :]

I was just wondering about the colleges IN cambridge, I thought I could just apply to "Cambridge University", but ends up there's "mini" colleges within? Which of THOSE do I apply to, have the top medical rating, etc ?
