“The Medic Portal’s course entitled ‘Mastering the BMAT’ offered a highly informative, intensive, thorough introduction to what is required to succeed in this admissions test. Not only did I learn about the syllabus and content of each of the 3 sections of the assessment, I also discovered time-saving strategies and invaluable advice regarding logical and effective methods to tackle each question type. As the day progressed, I grew in confidence and understanding, particularly as the course was interactive, fast-paced and expertly structured so that we had the opportunity to answer past BMAT questions under the necessary time pressure and, crucially, with immediate individual feedback and clarification. In this sense, the course was unparalleled and certainly I found it useful to supplement the information and guidance available online and in BMAT preparation books.
Running the course was a third-year medical student at Imperial College, Daniel. It was really beneficial to learn from someone who was in our shoes just a few years ago, as we had the chance not only to discuss the BMAT and how it is used by different universities, but also other aspects of the medical application process. The course was well-timed, as Daniel highlighted that it is vital to begin BMAT preparation early. I would highly recommend this course, as it boosts both your confidence and skills ahead of taking the challenging and determining element of medical admissions that is the BMAT.”
