BMAT Course Structure
The BMAT intensive course is a crash course that focuses on areas that you can most benefit from improving. Your tutor will ensure you get personal help with whatever part of the BMAT you find hardest.

1030 – 1300: Section 1
1300 – 1330: Lunch
1330 – 1600: Section 2

1730 – 1800: Debrief and Finish
Although the questions in section 2 aren’t especially difficult, the intense time pressure of having to do one question every minute makes this section the hardest in the BMAT. As with section 1, the trick is to identify and do the easy questions whilst leaving the hard ones for the end. Normally, the biology and chemistry questions in the BMAT require the least amount of time per question whilst the maths and physics are more time-draining.
Although the BMAT tests “GCSE Level” knowledge, the question style can be much more like A-level, and AS-level topics are frequently seen. This can be problematic if you haven’t done biology or physics beyond GCSE as you may not have covered some examinable topics (e.g. Newtonian mechanics, parallel circuits in physics, and hormones, menstrual cycle in biology). In addition, if you are rusty you will lose valuable seconds. To address this, we’ll teach commonly tested topics and also provide concise notes that will improve your mark dramatically, including a list of every equation you need to know for the BMAT.
The vast majority of questions in section 1 are either problem solving, data handling or critical thinking. Whilst this section of the BMAT is renowned for being difficult to prepare for, we’ll teach you common shortcuts and techniques you can use to save valuable time on these type of questions. We go over common types of question that come up every single year and show you how to get to the correct answer quickly and efficiently.
You have approximately 100 seconds per question, so many students are able to finish the majority of questions in time. However, some questions on the BMAT are very tricky and can be a big drain on your limited time – this is usually why people don’t finish and lose valuable marks in this section. On the course, you are taught to identify which questions are going to be easy and quick to do and to build your “question radar” for picking out the difficult questions – the ones to leave! This allows you to maximise your score gaining the easy marks and leaving the difficult ones until the end.
Section 3 of the BMAT is frequently neglected by lots of students, who choose to spend their time on sections 1 & 2 instead. However, it has the highest returns per hour of work out of all three sections so is well worth putting time into. Whilst different questions will inevitably demand differing levels of comprehension and knowledge, it is important to realise that one of the major skills being tested is actually your ability to construct a logical and coherent argument and to convey it to the lay-reader.
We will teach you crucial strategies for ensuring you score at least A3 or above, placing you over the interview cut-off for several BMAT universities e.g. Imperial. You’ll see examples of good and bad essays and then get detailed essay plans on how to approach the more difficult and obscure essay titles.
