In A Nutshell

In A Nutshell

Here’s what you need to know about the BMAT Crash Course by Ali Abdaal.

We’ve been running these courses for the last 6 years, and have taught over 10,000 students. Check out our Reviews page to see what some of them had to say.

We also run courses for the UCAT and Interviews, if either of those tickle your fancy.

Our course lasts 7 hours. It’s not enough to fully prepare you for the BMAT. But it’s a great foundation.

Section 1

Thinking Skills

While Section 1 is notoriously hard to ‘teach’, we’ll take you through some of the most difficult questions and explain them step by step, so you can start understanding the way to go for each of the categories and then do them on your own. We know a huge part of these types of questions is pure number handling, but we’ve done our best to categorise the various questions they like to ask, and to go over some strategies and techniques for tackling those questions.

Section 2

Scientific Knowledge

Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Maths conform Section 2 of the BMAT. As if that weren’t enough, you’ll need to beat the clock for this one as you’ll only have a minute per question! As part of the Crash Course, we’ll teach you all the Physics you need for this section, going through Biology and Chemistry as well, so you can face any question that may come up in this section.

Section 3

Essay Section

Last but not least, we’ll dedicate the final hour to essay strategy, plan, and structure, so you know what you’ll be doing for section 3 of the BMAT. Going through the perfect introduction and conclusion, you’ll learn tips for every aspect of the structure of your essay. Just like the exam, we’ll finish with the cherry on the cake, which (if done well), will give you that extra that admissions tutors are looking for.


We’ll start with an introduction & Section 1 Critical Thinking.


Then it’s time to work on Problem Solving – Section 1.


Break for lunch and take a breath.


Moving on to Section 2 Biology, Chemistry, and Maths.


It’s time to start Physics – Section 2, questions and strategies.


After so much work, we’ll take a break (just a little one).


The perfect time for the essay section – Section 3.


Q&A time. Strengthen your knowledge and solve all your doubts.
