Keeping the details up-to-date and accurate on your Universitaly account is important. They may need to notify you of updates through email.

You can update your details online by clicking ‘Your Personal Data’ and it will give you the option to change any information.

When is the deadline for IMAT 2021?

The IMAT deadline is 22 July 2021 at 1500 CEST (Italy time). If you miss this deadline, you can apply to private universities which have separate dates later around November time.

It’s a good idea to register as soon as possible as there are only a limited number of spots at each testing centre. If you leave it too late you could find yourself having to travel across the country to find a location with space for you to take the exam.

What is the cost of the IMAT?

The IMAT UK costs £114. There is no late fee once the deadline has passed you will have to wait till next year to apply again.

Can I reschedule my IMAT exam?

The IMAT is taken on a set date so you will not be able to reschedule.

Can I cancel my IMAT registration?

If you change your mind about sitting the IMAT or you’re no longer able to attend the exam, you may be given a full or partial refund. Refunds can take up to 21 days to be processed.

You can cancel your IMAT registration via the Universitaly site and get a full or partial refund depending on the date the cancellation is requested:

  • If you cancel before 23:59 Italian time on 26 August 2021 you will receive a full refund.
  • If you cancel after 23:59 on 26 August but before the test date you will receive a 25% refund.
  • Any cancellations on or after the test date will not receive a refund.

Can I change my test centre

Yes, it may be possible to change your IMAT test centre after you’ve registered! You can change your chosen location until the registration deadline (22 July 2021). This is subject to there being any remaining space at your preferred test centre, so if you require a particular location it is best to ensure you select this centre first and register as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment.

If I have a disability, can I have special considerations?

If you have any specific needs that may interfere with how you take the test, you can apply for reasonable adjustments to be made. You need to apply as soon as possible after you’ve registered. These requests are assessed on a case-by-case basis to ensure your needs are met.

You must submit this request before the deadline (22 July 2021). To apply, fill in the online form after completing IMAT registration and give details about your condition. You’ll be asked to attach supporting documentation from a registered health practitioner. This needs to be less than three years old for learning disabilities. For severe learning disability, they may provide students with non-scientific calculator or an assistant for reading the test.

Unfortunately no special circumstances can be given to test scores once you have sat the test. Therefore if you have a condition that you believe will impact your ability to take the exam, it is really important to apply for adjustments before exam day.

How will I get my results?

You will get your results 3 weeks after the IMAT test date on the Universitaly platform. You will not be told which universities have accepted you. This will be done 4 weeks after the IMAT exams are finished.
