IMAT 2024 Date

Table of Contents

The IMAT Date has finally been announced! 

IMAT 2024 Date: September 17th 2024

The IMAT will officially be conducted on the 17th of September 2024 as confirmed by MUR. This will be on a Tuesday. You can read the announcement here

This is a month earlier than last year (which was in October) and is more in line with what was the usual date when Cambridge managed the IMAT. 

Some of you may be shocked that it is one month earlier than last year. Previously we warned everyone that the test could be earlier than last year, and to thus study accordingly. September is when the IMAT has been held in most other years, and thus last year was more of an exception to the rule. 

You have just under 3 months of preparation, so even if you were expecting the test in October, do not worry. You can still do this!

IMAT 2024 Test Registration

You need to register for the test and we recommend doing this as early as possible, especially if you are taking the test outside of Italy. Places can fill up! Usually, you have 2 weeks to sign up, but you are advised to do it much earlier. 

When can you book the test? As of yet, it is not announced… but stay vigilant. It will likely be soon.

IMAT 2024 Specifications

Many of you are probably wondering about the IMAT syllabus 2024. It has yet to be announced, but it is very likely it will be the same as 2023. Stay tuned for more updates

Regarding the test format, we can assume with almost certainty it will be the same as previous years. That is…

  • 60 questions
  • 100 minutes to complete the exam
  • +1.5 marks for a correct answer
  • -0.4 marks for an incorrect answer
  • 0 marks for no answer

We will of course need to wait for the official announcement before we can say anything for sure, but there is currently no indication this would change. 

What Should I Do Now?

Right now registrations are not yet open, so you need to await the registration date before you can book the exam. Now that you have the date, however, you should start planning your trip to Italy or the other country that you intend to take the IMAT in. You should make the necessary visa arrangements if required. 

It is also time to start intensifying your study. It may feel like you have plenty of time, but it will go very quickly. The IMAT syllabus is heavy and competition gets more intense every year. Do not leave it to the last few weeks!

I cannot more highly recommend IMAT Buddy to anyone studying for IMAT - it is invaluable. I used this course to study for IMAT and scored 57.9. It has everything I needed to prepare, being especially helpful with IMAT's General Knowledge and Logical Reasoning sections. I've spent hundreds of pounds on other study courses which had out of date content, poor interfaces, and an overall negative experience. Don't make the mistake I've made wasting so much money on other courses, IMAT Buddy has everything you need. Thank you so much to the staff behind it!

I've been trying to get into med school for two years now and I've been through A LOT of different books and websites designed to help the test takers but I have never come across anything remotely similar to IMAT Buddy! I've been using it for quite some time now and I really enjoy the way everything is so perfectly arranged in it. The videos are super useful, there are plenty of test simulators AND you can monitor your own progress as you go on. I've never been more motivated and confident about IMAT. So of you wanna get into med school, make sure not to miss it, or do, cause you know, less competition for me 😁

ImatBuddy is probably one of the best course available out there. The course is well organized with the most important topics and it provides a lot of tips and tricks of what is really necessary to study for the IMAT. My personal experience is that through ImatBuddy I was able to raise my points in a short period of time. Especially the scientific section has very well made explanatory videos and for the first section there is also a lot of material with how to prepare best and efficiently.

I was pleasantly surprised to see how much information was provided for each and every topic. I loved the fact that the teacher knew exactly what is important for the IMAT and what is not, which really helped because I did not get overwhelmed by the information. I had a wonderful experience with IMAT Buddy, and I would recommend it to anyone, who wants to crack the IMAT! My IMAT 2023 score: 62

IMAT Buddy offers great preparation tools and courses at a fair price point. The course is well structured and helpful, the videos and explanations are easy to understand but still detailed. I had less than 2 months left to study before the exam and I still managed to learn a lot in this little time. If needed, I will definitely use IMAT Buddy again when studying for IMAT 2024. I can only recommend this course, it may be one of the best ones out there!

If it wasn’t for IMAT buddy I actually don’t know what I would’ve done tbh. I didn’t have any resources as I studied everything in my mother language ( Arabic) so I had to remember everything and memorize it in English. Thank you so much

      1. Hello.
        I want to apply for the medicine course in English in Bologna next year, but I live in Brazil. Here, the school year begins 6 months before the European, which means that when the IMAT starts, I will not have had finished the high school year (I’ll be on the last grade) neither will have my scholars documents translated yet. Can I do the IMAT even still on high school and without my documents translated? P.S: I’ll finish school on December 2025.
        I really want further information. Thanks!

        1. You will need to finish high school by the time the IMAT starts, since medical school in Italy will start soon after (usually close to a month or so after the IMAT).

  1. Should I give time to critical thinking because its replaced by reading section.
    If they are not gonna ask logical reasoning questions then I should spen time on something high yield?

  2. What’s the deadline for registration of IMAT? I would really appreciate it if you respond. Thanks

    1. The registration opening date and deadline are not out yet. Make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter, I will send an email out when the dates are announced

      1. i read on google that registration for imat has started in January ?? i would like if you confirm this info. Thanks

      2. Hi Would you update on your website once the Registration date is confirmed, MUR website is in Italian and none of the universities have published the date as well for 2024/2025 cycle.

  3. Sir i want to apply, so how can I apply, can you contact me, because nobody have any Idea about it,so please help me sir,as soon as possible I would be thankful to you

    1. To register for the IMAT test itself it is not necessary to have the DoV ready, but you will need it at other stages (such as during enrolment).

  4. Did pre-enrollment started? What’s the date of deadline and do I need to do before my application to university?

    1. Yes pre enrollment has started. The deadlines are university specific, so you should contact your university and ask what deadlines they have. You will need to do this step if you are a non-EU candidate

        1. Registration for the IMAT test itself is done on the same date for EU and Non-EU. I expect it to be open soon, so make sure you are subscribed to our newsletter. I will send an email when it is announced.

  5. Has the registration for EU candidates opened yet and if not when will it open and how will I know it is open?


  6. Hi Sir,
    I’m an EU candidate, I’ve already register for Universitaly. Can you help me please, with some navigational advices, what documents should I attach for IMAT exam, like do I need to translate officially my high school certificate? After IMAT registration I also have to register for the specific universities, or the IMAT registration includes the registration for the universities? Thank you for your response in advance!

  7. The IMAT registration itself does not require you to have your high school documents translated to italian, but this will be required later when you enroll to your university. You will make your selection of Universities when you apply for the IMAT, but be aware that some universities require you also to register on their websites.

  8. Hi…At first I wanna thank you about these valuable information then I wanna ask you about the registeration of IMAT in Italy. I wanna take Italy as the centre of the test but yet I have not been able to register. Is the call open or…?
    Please guide me:)
