    No, it's 30 mins for section 2 unless you meant it took you 10 mins to complete it.

    And I'm not sure what book you have, but I doubt it's very accurate, as the BMAT is a very difficult test.

    That's the past paper people sat for the 2011 entry (I think).
    It was the "Pass the Bmat and UKCAT" book. I have also just looked at that paper and I still don't think it's that bad. I am an idiot perhaps?

    Just had a look The questions themselves are not as brain-twisting as I'd imagined, but given the time to do them in, it amounts to a very difficult paper

    To drop an a-level or not? I like my subjects (Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Maths) but surely less subjects gives a better chance of good grades. Just wondering if universities prefer four really.

    Not at all. There are those people that are just that good and you might be one of them.

    Give a few questions on that paper a go then see if you got them right. The mark scheme is on the BMAT website, under test preparations.
    Don't! I have to do the bloody UKCAT and I'm terrible because I (kind of) love exams when I'm well prepared. None of the Unis that require BMAT will accept me - I've done two years of a previous degree and I'm a single mum with piss poor results from my scottish highers first time round - they actually have a million rules against me! Plus they are all very very expensive.

    But yes, I will try a practise paper Lord knows, it can't hurt, and it will break the monotony of quote learning.

    Oh god please don't incite this argument again :rolleyes:
    Unless you are sure you can manage all four, it's better to drop one and stick with three.

    Anyone know what Exeter/Plymouth/East Anglia are like as cities/towns/whatever? I really want to study in a large city (or at least a decent sized place with things to do) + I really like the sound of their courses.

    If UKCAT is good: HYMS, Barts, Liverpool, Aberdeen
    If UKCAT is bad: probably the same but sub in Bristol for Barts
    Liverpool don't use UKCAT at all!

    Pass the BMAT and UKCAT book is very easy... A lot easier than the actual test. I can tell you that out of my own experience,as I have had that book and I have also had both BMAT and UKCAT exams. BMAT is sooooooooo much harder than the sample papers in that book. So dont get fooled by it!

    Free internet on the phone was a life saver, I had to resort to plain old solitare to procrastinate.

    I live right by Exeter, it's relatively small, but there is a fair bit packed in. Would depend on what you like doing as to whether you'd enjoy it there or not.

    Ah right, thanks. Exploring the city sounds like half the fun tbh so I'm not sure how I'd find Exeter.

    Another question: do you know if there's much of a variety of people there? So, as a medical student, would there be an interesting range of things to see?

    Got my biology AQA EMPA this week, spent the day revising/looking at past papers/learning How science works questions.

    But the questions they ask in their EMPA can be so ridiculous, and badly phrased.
    I know what you mean, are you doing the real one and what topic is it? brings back memories this does
