    When do people normally take the BMAT & UKCAT? And what prep books are helpful?

    Advertisements



    Hello, I was just wondering, when do persons normally take the UKCAT and/or BMAT exams (i.e. In the 11th grade, 12th, 13th)? Also, are there any prep/review books for either of the exams that are generally viewed as very helpful, or that you personally found helpful (e.g. Kaplan [for SAT])? Thank you for your time, your responses will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi.
    Seeing as no one else is answering, I will try.
    Well... The UKCAT is a aptitude test as you well know, so there is not really any way for anyone to revise for anything specific.
    When I emailed asking about UKAT revision techniques, I got a reply saying that all questions sciencey and mathy, are based on GCSE grades, and some minor A level questions, but bear in mind that this I only a small portion of the test, and the rest is...well general knowledge with some smarts.
    You can purchase books thr can ready you for the question styles, qnd effective ways to answer.
    The BMAT... Well thats a completely diffrent story, 'apparently' all the questions are GCSE level and not any higher, but the only Catch is the terminology.
    I had look at a mock question, and it looked hard! But once I revised a bit og my GCSE stuff and some key higher level terminology, I found it alot easier to cope with.
    You best bet with the BMAT is to revise GCSE science and maths, and get some key terminology learnt, also you can purchase a book to get used tithe question style, same as UKAT.
    In the UK you have to take the UKAT and BMAT in the same year as you apply to the medical.school
    Happy revising!

    PS. You do know that not all universitys do the BMAT, off the top of my head I will say, imperial college London, university colleg London, oxford and good old Cambridge, so basically the BIG boys.
    And GCSE is the stuff UK Students do at age 15 and A levels are 16+, I dont know the equivalent to US

    Contact me if you need any more info.

    Sources: lots and lots of information done on something I could never achieve
