BMAT Tuition

Bespoke Expert Individual Tutoring

The Ultimate level of support – BMAT Tuition allows you to control the pace, content and difficulty of the tutorials. You’ll get one-on-one time with an expert BMAT Tutor who scored in the top 10% nationally. They’ll be able to focus on your strengths & weaknesses to ensure rapid improvement. You’ll also get instant access to all of our BMAT resources like online lectures + mock tests so you can start preparing straight away whilst we set up your tutor for you.

These tutoring sessions are a two way process and the more you put in- the more you’ll get out. Whilst tutors are happy to cover topics that will undoubtedly be useful, you will gain more from the sessions if you come prepared and armed with questions. Students who tend to improve the most are also the ones who persistently ask their tutor for focus on their weaknesses, week after week! We asked our BMAT tutors to give an outline of the 3 sections of the BMAT exam.

  • ``I can't think critically``

    “One common scenario that frequently crops up is struggling with critical thinking. To start off, I first go over what each of the important keywords mean e.g. Assumption, Flaw, Conclusion etc. Then we start by looking at relatively simple examples and then slowly build into harder ones. I point out key words that are usually ‘hidden-away’ in the passage that often change the answer and then we examine more difficult questions (usually of a greater length). When they start getting these right, I do timed drills to see if they can use the skills they’ve acquired under time pressure. This does wonders for confidence and I finish the session with some homework that includes more critical thinking questions which we review in the next session.”

  • ``I'm terrible at Physics``

    “This is an extremely common scenario since lots of students don’t study physics past GCSE. Thankfully, you can improve pretty rapidly in the physics subsection with some targgeted preparation. My first task is to ensure the student can recall all the core equations that can be examined in the BMAT (I have a sheet that I give to help them memorise these). After this we move onto understanding major physics principles like working with SI units, deriving equations from first principles, simplifying complex topics e.g. electric circuits and newtonian mechanics. Then we go onto techniques like how to choose the correct equation and manipulating equations to rapidly arrive at the correct answer. With practice, physics becomes as easy as the other sections.

  • ``I can't write essays``

    The BMATessay is frequently neglected by lots of students, normally because they don’t like writing essays and have never really been taught how to do so. The essay is actually quite straightforward and easy to do well on if students follow a routine. Before the session, I ask the student to write a timed essay and bring it with them. This allows me to gauge their level and pitch my teaching appropriately. We use their essay as an example of good and bad things- e.g. how much space is used to answer each part of the question, the strength of the introduction, breadth vs. depth of argument. I stress to them the importance of planning essays and we then plan several essays together. We then conclude by examining good and bad introductions and conclusions to the same essay title so they can see the impact of starting and finishing an essay well. I finish by setting them 2 further essays to do at home which we review in the next session.
