The one-day BMAT preparation course run by Oxbridge medical students.
Priced at £129, the BMAT Crash Course is the most effective and yet most affordable BMAT preparation course on the market. Run by a team of Oxbridge medical students, we’ve recently been through the system and will teach you everything you need to know (and more) to get the best score possible.
BMAT Crash Course In A Nutshell
We know you’re busy. So here’s the essential information about the 6med BMAT Crash Course.
- It’s a one-day course, which runs from 10am – 5:30pm most weekends from July – November each year. Most of our courses are in London, but we travel to other major cities too. See our dates and venues.
- Each class has around 30 students, with 1 instructor who is a medical student at Oxford or Cambridge. The course is priced at £109 per student. See our reviews.
- Each student gets a copy of our 300-page A4 course handbook. See samples of our materials.
- We spend the morning going over Section 1 – Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. We teach tips and techniques, and do lots of timed practice questions.
- Most of the afternoon is spent on Section 2 – we teach you all the Physics you need to know, and cover some of the trickier Biology & Chemistry topics too, with timed practice questions along the way.
- We spend the final hour on Section 3, planning a sample essay as a class and showing you how to manage your time in the writing task.
BMAT Course Overview
7 hours. That’s how long the course lasts. Is it enough to prepare you for the BMAT? Of course not. But it’s a pretty good start, and a great foundation upon which to build your own revision.
Aptitude & Skills
Although this section is notoriously difficult to prepare for, we’ll be taking you through some of the more difficult questions in each category, and teaching you the best methods for dealing with them. Sure, some of them will involve pure number crunching, but there’s usually a shortcut to the right answer, and the “trick” to doing well in this section (and indeed, the whole paper) is to find that shortcut in the time given. That’s what we’re aiming to teach you.
This section is all about using your knowledge of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths to beat the clock that only gives you a minute per question. On the course, we’ll be teaching you all the Physics you need to know for the BMAT (as most don’t do it at AS), and also going through some of the more difficult Biology and Chemistry questions that always come up. You’ll also get our excellent handbook which contains comprehensive notes on all the topics for you to revise from.
In the final hour of the course, we’ll be going through some past essay questions, and talking you through how to plan and structure your essays, how to write the perfect introduction and conclusion, and most importantly, how to ensure you meet any cut-off points that universities impose. This is arguably the easiest and least important section of the BMAT, so it’s a nice way to end an otherwise intense and exhausting day.

BMAT Course Materials
The BMAT Crash Course WorkbookThe Workbook is one of the most complimented features of our course. It takes the form of a gigantic, 300-page A4 spiral-bound tome. Our students tend to find it intimidating initially, but when they read through the content inside, they realise it’s clear and accessible, with no unnecessary jargon or flowery language. We’ve also injected a ‘bit of banter’ (to quote one of our students), which ‘makes it quite a fun read’ apparently.
Table of Contents
The Table of Contents is often a good indicator as to the content of a book. Here’s what ours looks like.
Written guides to all 7 Critical Thinking question types, and time-saving strategies for the Problem Solving questions. We’ve got a load of example questions as well – on the day of the course, we work through some of those in a timed, interactive fashion, and we ask students to do the rest in their own time. Fully worked solutions exist for every question in the workbook.
Here you’ll find a selection of notes from Physics, Biology and Chemistry. The notes will be your knowledge reference for this Section throughout your preparation.
Our Section 3 chapter contains information about our time management strategy for the writing task, along with some critiqued example essays.
Hundreds and hundreds of students have attended our courses and loved them. In this page, you can find their unedited reviews of our courses.
