BMAT Course

This two day course is designed to cover everything you need to sit the BMAT. Our expert tutor Melissa, a current UCL medical student, will help guide you through the BMAT process.  Together you will revise the science theory you need for Section 2, and learn how to answer questions proficiently. Section 1 will be broken down into the different questions types and you will be taught how to tackle them in the most time-efficient way. Moreover, Melissa will help you through the essay writing process for Section 3 before giving you a mock essay to complete. Your essay will be marked overnight with face to face feedback on how it could be improved given on the second day.
To consolidate your learning and prepare you for timings in the exam, there will be plenty of practice questions after each topic. These will give you the chance to ask Melissa questions to clear up any misconceptions. To finish the course, you will sit a mock exam which will be marked with individual written feedback sent to you by email. You will leave us feeling confident and prepared to sit the BMAT.
