    Less than five days till we sit the BMAT. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being nervous to the point of ******** yourself literally and 1 being very confident, how ready or prepared are you? At the moment, I'm a 7 right now.

    Quick q about the essay: do you think each part of the q carries equal weight in terms of marks? I only write about 3-5 lines to explain the statement, about 15-20 for the arguement and about 3-5 for the last part... So is this a good approach or do you think it's better to give them all equal time?

    You should relax though...at least you haven't got "too much" on stake.

    40?

    The possibilities I got were:
    145
    157
    158
    147
    148
    178
    457
    458
    478
    578

    Times 10 by 40 to get 40?

    yep

    10 x 4 (ABCD) = 40
    That's what I said, minus the really bad typo- I meant 10 X 4 not 10 X 40

    not good atm...

    so important aswell... gotta learn a bit more for section 2 aswell

    btw, for GCSE, which side to the electrons come out of a battery? the positive?

    and a cathode is the negative electrode?

    it's all the other way round for scotland:confused:

    So the laws of physics are different in Scotland?

    Does gravity act in the opposite direction 2?

    Electrons come out of the negative side of the battery and flow towards the positive.

    and the Cathode is positive.

    I'm an okay 4. But I think I'll get more stressed closer to the test. I have 3 BMAT unis afterall! I get consistantly around 7-8.5 on both section 1 and section 2 but section 3 is so variable, and who knows I could screw up the first 2. Okay I'm not a 4 I'm going to have a stroke.

    and the Cathode is positive.
    A cathode itself is negative. I think positive charge flows towards it is what you mean though.

    Yup the cathode is negative- as in cations (+ve ions) are attracted to it.

    we were told that you guys follow conventional current... and this bmat book had the cathode and anode the other way round

    haha... This made a laugh.

    For conventional current it's the other way round: positive to negative.

    And I take the last sentence to be sarcasm?

    Could someone please explain how to work out the answer for question 24 on this paper please? I know that the volume equals to the volume of a hemisphere + the volume of a cylinder, but i can't simplify the equation to get it to give me the answer.
    Please help.

    http://www.admissionstests.cambridge..._Section_2.pdf
    Apologies if someone has already answered this.

    You want volume of cylinder + volume of half sphere.

    so that's (pi r squared length) plus (two thirds pi r cubed).

    Do that, then add them together (common denominator 3) to get a fraction.

    Then multiply out each possible answer, and see which fraction matches yours.

    I'd say I was

    Section 1: 5
    Section 2: 5/6
    Section 3: 4

    But ask me again when I stumble across a question I struggle on and it'd be much higher.

    Is everyone going to be studying etc. right up until the night of the 4th/morning of the 5th or do people have a consensus that at some point it's time to say "pens down"??

    Well, other than the chance of getting an interview at UCL, which I would love to get - so actually I feel that there is a lot at stake here for me personally. I see what you mean though - I've only applied to one BMAT requiring institute unlike those who've applied to two or more.

    I'm aiming for the same scores. I guess that makes us rivals.
