BMAT Crash Course
In A Nutshell
In A Nutshell
Medical applicants are busy. So here’s the need-to-know information about the BMAT Crash Course.
2 days. Is it enough to prepare you for the BMAT? Of course not. But it’s a great foundation.
10:00 - 17:30
Welcome to the BMAT Crash Course! We’ll go through the basics to get everyone up to speed and get a good background on the exam.
Time to get your thinking caps on and we dive into Critical Thinking. We’ll go through each question type, how to identify each question and run through a practice question for each type together.
Onto the Biology questions! We’ll do a recap of the content you’ll need to know (it may have been a little while!) and run through an example question and answer for each question type.
We’ll outline what exactly is covered in the BMAT specification, then do a refresher on the topics you may have pushed to the back of your mind since GCSE. We’ll go through practice questions for each topic here.
After an intensive morning, it’s time for a spot of lunch and recharge our batteries. You’ll need it!
Ain’t no problem we can’t solve. We’ll jump straight back into Section 1 and cover each type of Problem Solving question and our secret tips and tricks to score highly on this section. As usual, we will do some practice questions to get real-world practice.
The (sometimes) dreaded Physics section. We spend a bit more time on this section because a lot of medics don’t pick Physics at A-level. We will cover the specification topics, do a recap of the content, then run through some practice questions. For the bigger topics, like Electricity, we will do a couple of practice questions.
Phew. Another break after we fry our brains with Physics. Grab your tipple of choice (we don’t recommend anything stronger than tea).
The last of the sections which have pre-requisitive knowledge! As with the other sections, we will go through the specification for Maths and do some practice questions as a group. If we’re finding certain topics tough, we’ll do a few questions to really wrap our heads around the concepts.
The final section of the exam, and the final topic of the day. We’ll explain exactly what is being tested with the BMAT essay, how best to use the time you have and other vital Section 3 information.
Then we’ll take a look at some example questions and model answers to get a feel for how you would approach it. You’ll be asked a lot of questions along the way. It’s nearly the end of day 1, but you’ll get no respite just yet!
Here’s the time to ask any burning questions you have. You are, of course, encouraged to ask questions throughout the day, but we find some time at the end of the day is helpful to reflect and consolidate what you’ve learnt.
And that’s Day 1 complete! Now you can go to sleep dreaming of the wonders of Day 2.
10:00 - 17:00
Welcome back! We’ll do a brief introduction to how Day 2 will run and what to expect. We’ll also get you set up on BMAT.Ninja so you are ready to sit your mock exam.
This is where all of Day 1 comes into play!
Put into practice the skills, knowledge and strategies you learnt yesterday on a true-to-life BMAT mock paper (this will be timed).
Phew, glad that exam’s out of the way. Time to relax for an hour, grab something to eat and reflect on what you found tough about the exam.
We’ll pull the key questions and topics the group has found difficult (made possible through our technical wizardry) and work through them as a group.
No stone will be left unturned here, any problems you had on your mock exam, now is the time to ask and quash those issues!
After the second brain-fry of the day, we have another short break to gather our thoughts.
In this last section of the course we will help you put together a viable revision plan for the BMAT with consideration for the time you have left until the exam.
We recommend inviting your parents along to this bit if they’re around – there’s information for them too.
Here is where we bid our solemn farewells, but not before you have asked any remaining questions you have to your expert BMAT tutor.

So, you’d like to start as soon as possible, huh? We like your attitude; we usually start in July depending on the demand of the course.
Not really, this course was planned to review each section of the BMAT, but if you want personalised support, you should review the Super Sensei BMAT tuition, it gives you one to one tuition about the subject, doubts, or section that you prefer!
Of course, our policy allows changes 14 days in advance. If it’s sooner than that, there is a small admin fee since we’ve already assigned students to dates.
Our general recommendation is to start your preparation process as soon as you can. We usually start in July and would love to see you in the first session of this year!
If you can’t attend the course for any reason, let us know as soon as you can. If it’s more than 14 days before the start date, then we can re-arrange your course date. We can still accommodate beyond that, but we have to charge a small admin fee.
Book today and watch your BMAT score skyrocket.
All of our resources and courses are created and led by tutors who have recently gone through the process and passed with flying colours. We’ve helped thousands of students with their BMAT exam. Will yours be next?
