Ditto with Crow - goign well using official BMAT and TSA papers. Medify looks good with their question bank thingys but doesn't seem to actually grade the essays but I managed to find a pretty good-for-value doctor to give feedback my essays - so far pretty good, PM me if anyone else applying for 2024 entry and wanna try him out

Medify is terrible, they used Year 12s and 13s to write questions for them. At times they used rephrased IMAT questions, do not recommend.

Which unis are you applying to? Btw the second bit of your post can get you banned for advertising by the mods lol

Damn, I didn't realise Medify was that bad! I am looking to apply for mainly the London ones, but just because I have family there and looks like other unis tend to send people all over the place and moving around kind of sucks... Which ones are you applying for?

Also oops, thanks for the heads up. Didn't know that sounded like advertising - now I am looking very guilty joining the medify bash haha
Is BMAT ninja a good resource for preparing for the bmat? Also what would be the best way to structure your prep, if I started 6 weeks before the exam?
hi, i'm planning on sitting the bmat as my ucat score was horrendous. i hope my bmat goes a lot better than my ucat. i'm a bit unsure on where i should start now. i've got the bmat medify bundle so i might try doing some questions from there and see how it goes. i definitely need to brush up on my gcse physics though

From experience, Medify is terrible; r/BMATExam exposed them for hiring Year 12-13s to write questions for them.

Where can i get practice essays marked? I'm thinking of just asking my chemistry teacher (also head of medicine applications at my school) to mark a few over the next few weeks
Would anyone mind stopping by my thread on Section 3, maybe adding a few notes on my essay. The point of the thread is all self-contained within it.
