    Hi, for GCSE I took double science, and apparently for the BMAT exam you need to know the triple science stuff the for sciences for GCSE- is this true or not?
    Thanks

    true, but i mean compared to A-levels, triple science would be easy, but make sure you study hard, good luck!

    Thanks, but I don't do AS physics do that would put me at a disadvantage?

    As long as you revise the equations and learn the content on the spec for BMAT, you will be fine. Have you tried any section 2 papers yet? How have they been

    No not yet, the BMAT is after AS in 2018 so I think it's too early lol but I've had a look at it and i must say section 3 looks very hard

    yr 12 but I was just worried because I didn't do tripe science and don't take AS physics and I feel like the summer isn't enough time for me.

    the bmat in in November, which is in over a year's time, so many people don't take AS physics if they want to study medicine, all you need to do is study what the bmat requires you to study, plus learning GCSEs should be child's play. if you're so worried then start studying now but you shouldn't need any AS physics knowledge as that is not a requirement for medicine, are you gonna do the UKCAT well?

    Yh I'm doing the UKCAT as well. But you said that the BMAT tests you on GCSE triple science but I haven't done triple science?

    what I'm saying is look at the topics that the Bmat need you to know, and then study triple science in your own time (if nessecarily), now that you are in yr 12 you'll realise how easy GCSEs were so learning some triple science will not be too taxing

    Oh it's definitely too early! My BMAT is on Thursday and I only started doing prep a few weeks back but I am still getting above average scores in my practice tests. I don't do physics at AS and I struggled a lot at GCSE despite doing triple science. I will admit, it is hard to remember everything for the BMAT but I strongly recommend doing a BMAT course, I've been to one from MedicMind and one from AspireMed and both were INSANELY helpful.
