Wondering what you should be doing the day before BMAT? Use these last-minute tips the day before your exam to ensure you perform at your best and maximise your BMAT score.

1. Don’t spend the whole day studying

It’s perfectly normal to feel anxious the day before an exam – but hopefully you’ve worked hard on your BMAT revision and done lots of practice questions and past papers by this point.

Remember that last-minute cramming is unlikely to help you and it might even hinder your performance.

Try to spend the day before BMAT avoiding unnecessary stress. If you want to look over any key notes or remind yourself of any exam strategies you might particularly struggle with, do so.

But you shouldn’t spend the day learning new things because this will only panic you. You’ll probably end up feeling burnt out, stressed and definitely not in the right mindset for test day!

On this note, do your best to get into a good mindset. Relax, watch TV, go out and do some exercise; avoid anything that will make you feel stressed.

2. Prepare for test day

The day before your exam, make sure you double-check the time and test centre location. Plan your journey so you will have plenty of time to get there, even if there is some sort of hold-up.

You need to bring a photo ID to the BMAT test (this could be a passport, driving license, provisional driving license or student ID) so it’s wise to get this ready the day before. You don’t want to be rushing around looking for your ID on test day.

You’ll also need a pencil and eraser for Section 1 and Section 2 and a black ink pen for Section 3, so make sure you have these items ready in advance too.

3. Plan your morning and final memorisation session

Plan what time you’re going to get up, so you won’t be rushing around and getting stressed. Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to eat before your test – whether it’s breakfast before a morning test, or lunch before an afternoon test.

You should also factor in some time to wake up your brain with an activity like reading or listening to music.

Before you go to bed the night before the exam, do a little revision (say 15-30 minutes) of any key formulas, facts or areas you really want to memorise. Doing this right at the end of the day should aid your memorisation of these key topics.
