    Hi everyone,

    I am currently struggling with construction and deconstruction type of questions. I am finding it hard to visualise what the unfolded shapes would look like when folded up. Is there a technique to it? I am practising, but I feel like there is something I am missing.

    Do you think it would be a good idea to just skip these questions in section 1 to save time, or would I miss a lot of marks?

    Also just out of curiosity, how long have you guys been preparing for BMAT?

    It is sort of a skill that you have or you don't have. Try and visualise the shape or try to see which sides would be opposite each other. Alternatively if you have time, physically cut out a net and make the shape out of a blank page of the exam paper...only if you have loads of time though.
