We know you're busy. So here's the essential information about the BMAT Crash Course.
We've been running these courses for the last 3 years, and have taught over 3,000 students. Check out our Reviews page to see what some of them had to say.

Ali, one of our co-founders, put together a series of YouTube videos detailing tips and tactics for the BMAT while he was on his medical elective in fifth year. You might find some of them helpful.
7 hours. That’s how long the course lasts. Is it enough to prepare you for the BMAT? Of course not. But it’s a pretty good start, and a great foundation upon which to build your own revision.
We’re going to take you on a rollercoaster ride through the 3 sections of the BMAT. We won’t ask you to do practice papers while you’re with us – you can do those in your own time. Instead, we’ll work through the different types of questions, teaching you methods and systems to use for most of them, and helping you develop the intuition needed for the rest.
Your primary goal in BMAT preparation should be to work through the problems as accurately and (perhaps even more importantly), as QUICKLY as possible. Anyone could get 100% if they had 4 hours, but the true test of the BMAT is in the timing. That’s what we’re going to help you with. We’ll teach you practical methods and systems to get you through section 1, we’ll teach you all the science you need to know to ace section 2, and we’ll work with you to maximise your section 3 essay score, both on the day and via email afterwards. You’ll find a more detailed breakdown of exactly what we do on the course below.
Although this section is notoriously difficult to prepare for, we’ll be taking you through some of the more difficult questions in each category, and teaching you the best methods for dealing with them. Sure, some of them will involve pure number crunching, but there’s usually a shortcut to the right answer, and the “trick” to doing well in this section (and indeed, the whole paper) is to find that shortcut in the time given. That’s what we’re aiming to teach you. Read More
This section is all about using your knowledge of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths to beat the clock that only gives you a minute per question. On the course, we’ll be teaching you all the Physics you need to know for the BMAT (as most don’t do it at AS), and also going through some of the more difficult Biology and Chemistry questions that always come up. You’ll also get our excellent handbook which contains comprehensive notes on all the topics for you to revise from. Read More
In the final hour of the course, we’ll be going through some past essay questions, and talking you through how to plan and structure your essays, how to write the perfect introduction and conclusion, and most importantly, how to ensure you meet any cut-off points that universities impose. This is arguably the easiest and least important section of the BMAT, so it’s a nice way to end an otherwise intense and exhausting day. Read More

While most of our courses are run throughout the UK from August - November each year (see a full list of dates and venues), we also run annual courses in Spain, Singapore and The Netherlands.
Having teamed up with some extremely talented Dutch medical students, we’ve been running the BMAT Crash Course in Leiden, The Netherlands for the last three years now. Because their system is a little different to the UK one, Dutch students take the BMAT early in the New Year.
Our next 2017 course will be running on Sunday 29th January 2017. You can find more information about it by clicking here, and you can book by clicking the Register button below.
Our Singapore BMAT Crash Course has also been running for the past two years, and will continue to do so with the help of our Oxbridge colleagues from Singapore. We run the course each year in September, and will have more information for you towards the middle of 2017 once we've finalised the dates and arrangements.
If you'd like to be notified of when the dates are confirmed, please join the Singapore course mailing list, and we'll drop you a line when everything's ready.
We’re a team of medical students (and friends) from some of the UK’s top universities. Our company (6med) started up in 2013 with a simple mission – to provide the most effective and yet most affordable exam preparation courses on the market, and to “level the playing field” warped by corporations profiting from the exploitation of budding medical students.
