Introduction

Here will introduce what critical thinking question types are most common and look at trends in question types over the past 5 years and beyond.

Hopefully by now you have understood the theory and we will apply it to see if you can show us that you have! If you are struggling, we will delve deeper and go into theory more.

In this tutorial, we teach you how to successfully tackle the more complicated, passages where you have to make inferences rather than extracting info quickly.

We will apply the principles of reasoning and look at how questions around principles come up in the BMAT exam and help you develop effective techniques.

We approach Problem Solving by systematically working through the various question types you can expect to face in the exam and teach you shortcuts to save you time.

Introduction

Here will introduce what problem solving question types are most common and look at trends in question types over the past 5 years and beyond.

Date and Time questions involve you knowing how many minutes there are in a year, seconds in a week and more! We help you memorise the important information making your life a lot easier.

These come up every year! We'll show you hidden secrets that help you do well in Section 1 Problem Solving questions and become Sherlock Holmes in disguise!

Speed, Distance & Time is an important part of the exam to test your mathematical nous. We help you understand how to convert units and answer questions.

We brush up on your mathematical reasoning and help you work out how to answer these questions by condensing the information down into an understandable format.

In this BMAT tutorial we put the theory of mathematical reasoning into practice and allow you to bring in examples of questions you are struggling with too.

Here we will introduce one of our most effective Problem Solving Resoning techniques - answering cube questions. We’ll discuss shortcuts if you struggle to visualise information as many do!

It's easy to forget the basics of graphical data that is presented and while it is hard to prepare for all of these questions, we teach you a method you can apply to all of these BMAT questions.

Hopefully by now you have understood the theory and we will apply it to see if you can show us that you have! If you are struggling, we will delve deeper and go into theory more.

The final hurdle to completing BMAT Section 1 Problem Solving! We will apply the techniques with interactive questions and real past paper question compilations.

We've broken down Section 2 into the most commonly tested topics as well as giving you a refresher of the topics you're least familiar with like GCSE Physics! Our statistical analysis will aid your revision plan and help you achieve above 7 in S2!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the BMAT?

The Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT) is a challenging test used for medical, dentistry and veterinary applicants. For UK Medicine, the BMAT is required by Oxford, Cambridge, UCL, Imperial, Brighton & Sussex, Leeds and Lancaster.

How is the BMAT Scored?

You get a BMAT score out of A-C for the Quality of English, and a score from 1-5 for the Quality of Content. The best score is 1A. and the worst score is 5C. Now to the classic question of 'What is a good BMAT Score?'. You should be aiming for an A in English, any anything above 3 is good for Content.

Who are the BMAT tutors?

We have a small team of 25-30 BMAT tutors from Oxford, Cambridge, UCL and Imperial and King's College London. We can find a tutor who meets your needs and will send you a few profiles to choose a tutor you prefer.

Where does BMAT tutoring take place?

We tend to do the majority of our BMAT tutoring via Skype. Our courses are specialised for online learning, and online lessons enable greater flexibility. However, we are able to do in person BMAT lessons in a location in Central London as well. There is an additional cost per hour of this of £5.

I live outside the UK, is that a problem?

Not at all! 30% of our BMAT students are from countries like Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong and many more areas. We will cater to your needs with online BMAT lessons

How many hours of BMAT tutoring do I actually need?

It's completely up to you how many hours you book for BMAT Tutoring but we recommend between 20-40 hours however there is no obligation to do so!

I can't afford up to 20 hours, can I still get 1-1 BMAT Tutoring?

Of course! If you message us on our live chat or call us we can arrange a personalised package for you
