IMAT Seats Available: Main Takeaway 

In terms of the number of seats for each university, there has not been much change. The biggest change is the introduction of a brand new university for both EU and non-EU’s, which is the University of Cagliari. Then there is also the fact that non-EU’s will for the first time be able to study in Catania. 

Clearly, the development is good news, with the main winners being non-EUs who not only have more seats overall but two brand new universities to choose from.

Overall, this allocation of seats is great news for everyone. More seats mean more places for you and your competitors and thus more chances of you securing a place this year!

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 I've spent hundreds of pounds on other study courses which had out of date content, poor interfaces, and an overall negative experience.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.

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. Please when is the IMAT expected to be written this year ?
    Because last year this info on number of seats came out in the month of August

    So I think this year the IMAT will come back to September

    1. It could happen, and I suggest you prepare for that possibility so that you do not understudy. However, nothing official is out yet regarding the dates, so all we can do is speculate

  2. Can u tell me if we take free_enrolment from any university for mbbs admisin as our choice and after result our merit is low than that university then can we get admission in other university which merit is equal to our marks?

    1. Hi Ghania,
      If you are a non-EU candidate you will only be considered for ONE university choice. You will technically be able to apply for all of them when you register for the IMAT, but you will only be considered for your first choice which will be the one you pre-enrolled for. So choose very carefully.

      If you are an EU candidate, you can apply to all the universities.

      1. It is hard to say which university is ‘best’ for you since what is best for you might not be the best for someone else. Ranking wise Turin is higher, but I do not suggest allowing university rankings to influence your decision, they do not mean much. Things like costs of living, university fees, university experience, the city itself etc can vary a lot between these two choices and based on your personal situation. I suggest researching them and deciding which fits your choice better.

        1. In my opinion, it is not easy for a non-EU. You need to study hard and get a high score if you want to be sure of admission. Of course, entry scores vary year by year and differ greatly between universities. Generally Messina and Bari are the easiest for non EUs, but this is based on historical data and could change

    1. If need help with study material I have a few books that I’m using that are really good, I belive it could help you boost your score. I’ll drop my email adress here feel free to contact me.

    1. Pre enrollment deadlines are different for each university. My advice is to write to the international students desk of the university you are interested in and ask them.

    1. The application for the IMAT test itself is done on Universitaly. Registrations are currently not yet open. Please note that there are other things you need to do as well in order to secure admission, such as pre enrolment, visa applications, etc.
