BMAT Section 1 Tips & Techniques

Advice & Insight From BMAT Specialists

The only place to start....

BMAT Past Papers are your best friend for every part of the BMAT examination; past papers are freely available from 2003-Present providing ample practice opportunities . Make sure that they are the first resource you use, the last resource and many times throughout your preparation. Whilst the questions vary from year to year, the question styles, tricks and pitfalls repeat year on year.

Focus on areas of weakness....

So…you’ve been working away at the past papers, and it has become apparent that you’re not quite as strong at problem solving questions compared to critical thinking. Worry not, whatever your areas of strength and weakness are, we’ve created the BMAT Past Paper Subject Guide allowing you to focus your preparation on areas where you need additional practice.

Additional Critical Thinking Practice....

You’ve completed the BMAT Past Papers and you’ve even been through the BMAT Subject Guide, however you’re still hungry for more Critical Thinking practice….Interestingly, OCR (whose sister company Cambridge Assessment write the BMAT) have for many years offered a Critical Thinking A Level. Whilst the Critical Thinking A Level is no longer offered, we’ve stockpiled many of the Critical Thinking Past Papers for you to practice.

p.s. Wondering why the Critical Thinking Unit Two Past Papers are so similar to BMAT Section 1 Questions? Yes….that’s write, the same questions that are used in Critical Thinking Unit Two Past Papers are often used in subsequent BMAT Section 1 Papers.

Additional Problem Solving Practice.....

Don't learn the answers, learn from the answers

Knowing the past paper answers isn’t enough, in fact it isn’t even a start. BMAT Past Paper questions are almost never repeated in subsequent years. However…..the techniques and question styles are repeated year on year. Hence, ensure that you use BMAT Past Paper Worked Solutions to understand the rational behind each of the answers and the most efficient techniques required to tackle each question type. So when the question style from 2003 is repeated this year, you won’t remember the 2003 answer, instead you’ll recall the technique required to obtain the correct answer.

Time aware....Time efficient

Section 1 is the second most time pressured section of the BMAT examination. Ensure that you always practice under timed conditions as this well help to make sure that you complete this section and are not surprised by the limited time in the exam.

To assist you with efficient BMAT preparation, we have compiled a list of the essential BMAT Section 1 Preparation Resources in one place.
