The course is for all students preparing for the BMAT exam. Some of you have not done math or physics for a while, but others may be pursuing these at a higher level of education. Our course is designed to adapt to the group’s strengths and weaknesses while ensuring comprehensive coverage of all topics and integrated practice.
If you are worried that your background knowledge in some of the sciences is not strong enough for the course, feel free to message us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can review your individual situation with you. However, we do make sure to teach you the information you need at the course. We also have realistic practice questions so that all students can experience the expected level of difficulty at the BMAT.
If you are preparing for the IMAT, we will have an IMAT course available soon. If you plan to take both courses (BMAT live course & IMAT live course) or if you plan to take just one course but are also preparing for the other exam, get in touch with us before your class and we will make sure to provide you with additional material relevant for you.
By the end of the class, you will feel very comfortable with the full section 1 and the essay section. For the sciences, you will a good understanding of all the required topics as well as how they are tested and how to prepare to maximise your section 2 score. It is not possible to teach in-depth every science lessons of the BMAT in a 12 hours course, so you should expect to have still a lot of learning to do on our own, but the most difficult topics are taught in-depth and others are reviewed through practice and explanations. You will also learn strategies on how to guess, how to manage your time and how to best prepare.

The University Clinical Aptitude Testand BMAT (BioMedical Admissions Test) form a very important part of your medical school application. Many prospective medical students find themselves struggling with the third and final section of the BMAT, feeling that as scientists they ‘can’t write a good essay’. In this blog post, we hope to be able to dispel some of the myths surrounding the BMAT essay and help you feel more confident in your essay writing abilities.
It is really important that as part of your BMAT revision you ensure you follow your progress using practice questions. Thankfully, all of the past papers since 2003 are available on theCambridge Assessment and Admissions Testing website. We thoroughly recommend working through as many of these as possible. Not only will it allow you to refresh your knowledge, but it will allow you to get very familiar with the exam format.
