Advice & Insight From BMAT Specialists

Introduction to the BMAT

The BMAT exam is comprised of three sections to be completed in two hours:

  • Section 1 –Aptitude and Skills: 35 MCQs, 60 Minutes, Maximum Score: 9.0
  • Section 2 –Scientific Knowledge and Applications: 27 MCQs, 30 Minutes, Maximum Score: 9.0
  • Section 3 –Writing Task: 1 Essay out of a choice of 3, Maximum Score: 5A


The BMAT examination is unlike any which students would have faced to date, requiring extensive preparation and a unique approach. At BlackStone Tutors, we have a large data-bank of past papers and resources for Sections 1, 2 and 3 in order to better equip candidates.

​Furthermore, our tutors offer explanations for the past paper answers, ensuring that students have a better all-round understanding so that they are not deceived by marginally adapted questions in their examinations. Section 3 often proves the most difficult for students, with the emphasis being on balanced arguments and reasoned thought rather than knowledge of scientific facts. Our tutors offer specific guidance and tips on exam technique including how to formulate a well structured and balanced essay as well as how to decide which points are most pertinent to include and how best to order these points.

A Selection of our BMAT Course Reviews

I’m absolutely ecstatic about my interview, I think that one of the reasons why I’ve been invited for interview is because of my BMAT essay score (4.5A) and I wouldn’t have received such a fantastic score without my BMAT tutor’s help. Furthermore, the resources that I received during the BMAT course were invaluable and excellent practice. Thank you once again!
Anjeline Joegi (Medicine Offer with academic scholarship consideration, Imperial College London)

I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Dr Merali and the team for the BMAT insight. The exam (especially Section 3) went better than expected, so hopefully it will be enough to secure interviews. Will keep you updated, thanks again!
Alice Sutton (Medicine Offer from Churchill College, Cambridge)

‘The quality of the (BMAT) course was excellent. I could see no points for improvement.’
Sa-Bin Hong (Medicine Offer, Imperial College London)

‘The course was unbelievably helpful! Not only with the mock papers provided but especially the tips and techniques made the exam so much more approachable.’
Fatemah M (Four Medicine offers including academic scholarship at Imperial College London)

‘Went to both the UKCAT and BMAT courses, and have to say I was thoroughly impressed. Also went to the coma bmat course where the teaching was in much larger groups. The only downside of the Blackstone course was having to travel two hours each way from Birmingham to London – well worth it in the end. Thanks for everything.’
Anisha Mehta (Medical Student, University College London)


‘The course proved to be very useful, other courses which I have attended have not been as detailed. I feel much more confident tackling the BMAT. On a separate note, my tutor was very engaging and an excellent teacher, he managed to explain all questions effectively and provided very useful tips.’
Student, Ilford County High School
