Biomedical aptitude test. Used by lots of universities as an extra medicine assessment. Others use UKCAT.

Its used as an extra admission criteria for some universities for medicine vet science etc.
Normally it's specified in the admission criteria so if he / you haven't been made aware of it till now I suspect he doesn't need it.
However if he needed it for sept 2016 it's too late as the exam was a few weeks ago and the results are due out on Wednesday.
