    Hi! How are you doing on your BMAT preparations? Are you looking forward to it and how do we prepare ourselves? As my fall break has just started I'll use it to work through the Preparing for the BMAT book and I'll probably start repeating the chem, math, bio topics I've done at high school. Feel free to post anything regarding to the BMAT in here.

    Hmm... You're right it gives me an annoying error as well.
    I hope it's online soon, there are some useful practice papers on it. At least I've worked through the bmat guide. I am afraid I have to start learning all the formulas by heart, at high school we were never required to learn them, but it probably is handy to know them.

    Advice: Just revise as much basic mathematics as you can..practice them so you can do it very quickly & accurately. The scientific knowledge section are based on very simple GCSE science with a little bit more logic involved, so don't need to kill yourself with revising everything you did in triple science. For those people who are not doing physics in A level, the best thing to do is revise the physics bit first (here I am presuming everyone is doing Biology and Chemistry)

    lol depends on what universities you are talking about...some university 'filter' out those people who score very lowly i.e Cambridge
    I think I read someone saying most people who got an offer from Cambridge scored around 5.2 to 6.something in BMAT but I need to check this again ^^

    average is 6.0 6.0 9.0 for the three sections. They're scored really wierdly, and adjusted according to the scores of everyone, so the meaning differs from year to year if u get what I mean.
