    Hey,

    I took the BMAT last year and focussing too much on it at the expense of my A levels was a mistake I made. Make sure that whatever you do, you don't end up neglecting your subjects as they're definitely more important.

    You might find it useful to have a read of this post I wrote regarding balancing them both:

    Best of luck!

    Can you recommend the best source I can start with??? I wanted to read the BMAT assumed knowledge first but I feel like I'm wasting my time. Should I just go straight into questions and just look at notes when trying to study difficult topics? I have the official BMAT book, 700 questions book, medify, past papers, BMAT ninja, Past papers. I have 16 days left and I don't feel like I have enough time to do all of these Please help

    Definitely do use the assumed knowledge, it is useful. I mainly used past papers and a little bit of BMAT ninja for additional practice.
    But to be honest, there's so many past papers that they should be enough, use them first!
