    Hi everyone,
    I need to start preparing for BMAT but have no idea at all how to approach the essay wrting section, as in, what I should write. Are there any books/websites/videos anyone can recommend that would make me more confident about S3? Any methods anyone used that they found useful? Generally, I'm alright with writing but some of the quotes are so strange and I just don't have any ideas about what I should write down! Thanks in advance.

    I sat the BMAT last year and although section 3 may seem the scariest, to be honest, is not. I would recommend you to start by reading short essays and rewrite them and then start writing your own. Make sure you know as many synonyms as you can for repetitive words ( this improves with practice). The best way to start is by reading a book and write short essays about it. Read about relevant medical topics and any other thing you may be interested in and then write about it. Do not time yourself until you feel ready to do so, but do not forget to do it at some point!
    I prepared myself to write an essay about the medical topic and ended up talking about a Victor Hugo quote because I felt more comfortable about that topic and I had a rough Idea of the Ideologies of the author so don't be scared to write about a different topic!
    Best luck !!!
