BMAT Section 3 Vocabulary

Advice & Insight From BMAT Specialists

As the quality of language is assessed in the Section 3 essay, using the correct vocabulary and grammar is imperative. As many, if not most applicants taking the BMAT are doing Science subjects at A Level, many candidates do not have recent experience of writing essays. Thus it is important to do as many practice essays as possible, and ask for an English teacher, for example, to check the vocabulary and grammar. In terms of the content required for Section 3, there is no set list, however any reference to the 4 pillars of medical ethics (beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy and justice) will be favoured by the examiners.
