Priced at £129, the BMAT Crash Course is the most effective BMAT preparation course on the market. Created by Oxbridge medics and run by a team of experienced medical students, we’ve recently been through the system and will teach you everything you need to know (and more) to get the best score possible.
BMAT Crash Course In A Nutshell
We know you’re busy. So here’s the essential information about the 6med BMAT Crash Course.
- It’s a one-day course, which runs from 10am – 5:30pm most weekends from July – October each year.
- Each class has around 30 students, with 1 instructor who is a medical student at top university. The course is priced at £129 per student. See our reviews.
- Each student gets a copy of our 300-page A4 course e-book. See samples of our materials.
- We spend the morning going over Section 1 – Thinking Skills which tests Critical Thinking and Problem Solving. We teach tips and techniques, and do lots of timed practice questions.
- Most of the afternoon is spent on Section 2 – we teach you all the Physics you need to know, and cover some of the trickier Biology & Chemistry topics too, with timed practice questions along the way.
- We spend the final hour on Section 3, planning a sample essay as a class and showing you how to manage your time in the writing task.

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.
BMAT Course Overview
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.
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.
Scientific KnowledgeThis 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.
Writing TaskIn 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 day.
