    I know it's really early especially since the 2017 cycle admissions have not ended BUT I was wondering how/when to start preparing for the entry tests?

    I'm currently going into my second year of Biomed so I will hopefully be applying to med school next summer. I'm thinking of doing all the admission tests but I'm not sure how early to start revising? I know the BMAT incorporates certain things, for example, in physics, that I have not covered since GCSE, so should I start getting ready to learn them??????

    It's best to lay the foundations while you're still (relatively) free in the start of second year. By this I mean going over the key areas of each entry test you are thinking of taking. So for me with the UKCAT I've started to work on my mental arithmetic, reading speed etc because the sections will test those. Then plan to get down to more specific practice (guides, medify etc) nearer the exam date.

    p.s. there's already a thread for 2018 cycle applicants
