Somil is currently studying Accelerated Medicine at Worcester College, Oxford and hopes to one day become a Psychiatrist. Previously, Somil studied Natural Sciences at St John’s College, Cambridge where he came top of the year in his final exams.

Between his 2 degrees, Somil spent a year tutoring approximately 30 students GCSE and A Level Maths and Science, and helped several students with their Oxbridge and medical school application. Of note, he has assisted several of his tutees in exceeding their expected BMAT score.

Somil has been part of the UniAdmissions team since 2014 and has thoroughly enjoyed his work with them. In his spare time, Somil enjoys running and playing tennis.

Over the last five years, he has tutored hundreds of successful Oxbridge and Medical applicants. He has also authored ten books on admissions tests and interviews.

Rohan has taught physiology to undergraduates and interviewed medical school applicants for Cambridge. He has published research on bone physiology and writes education articles for the Independent and Huffington Post. In his spare time, Rohan enjoys playing the piano and table tennis.

Thousands of students take the BMAT exam in November each year. These exam papers are then released online to help future students prepare for the exam. Before 2013, these papers were not publically available meaning that students had to rely on the specimen papers and other resources for practice. However, since their release in 2013, BMAT past papers have become an invaluable resource in any student’s preparation.

This book does not include BMAT past paper questions because it would be over 1,000 pages long if it did! However, BMAT past papers for the last 10 years are available for free from the official BMAT website. To save you the hassle of downloading lots of files, we’ve put them all into one easy-to-access folder for you at www.uniadmissions.co.uk/bmat-past-papers.

At the time of publication, the 2017 paper has not been released so this book only contains answers for 2003 – 2016. An updated version will be made available once the 2017 paper is released. The 2014 past paper worked solutions are also available at the link above.

BMAT Past papers are one the best ways to prepare for the BMAT. Careful use of them can dramatically boost your scores in a short period of time. The way you use them will depend on your learning style and how much time you have until the exam date but here are some general pointers:

4-6 weeks of preparation is usually sufficient for most students.Students generally improve in section 2 more quickly than section 1 so if you have limited time, focus on section 2.The BMAT syllabus changed in 2009 so if you find seemingly strange questions in the earlier papers, ensure you check to see if the topic is still on the specification.Similarly, there is little point doing essays before 2009 as they are significantly different in style. We’ve included plans for them in this book for completeness in any case.Although this is a cliché, the best way to prepare for the exam is to start early – ideally by September at the latest. If you’re organised, you can follow the schema below:

This paradigm allows you to minimise gaps in your knowledge before you start practicing with BMAT style questions in a textbook. In general, aim to get a textbook that has lots of practice questions e.g. The Ultimate BMAT Guide (www.uniadmissions.co.uk/bmat-book) – this allows you to rapidly identify any weaknesses that you might have e.g. Newtonian mechanics, simultaneous equations etc. You can get a free copy of The Ultimate BMAT Guide for free online (see the back of this book for more details).

Finally, it’s then time to move onto past papers. The number of BMAT papers you can do will depend on the time you have available but you should try to do at least 2009 – 2016 once.

If you have time, do 2003- 2008 once (ignore section 3). If you find that you’ve exhausted all BMAT resources and have time left, go through the 2009 – 2016 papers again. Practice really does make perfect!

This book is designed to accelerate your learning from BMAT past papers. Avoid the urge to have this book open alongside a past paper you’re seeing for the first time. The BMAT is difficult because of the intense time pressure it puts you under – the best way of replicating this is by doing past papers under strict exam conditions (no half measures!). Don’t start out by doing past papers (see previous page) as this ‘wastes’ papers.

Once you’ve finished, take a break and then mark your answers. Then, review the questions that you got wrong followed by ones which you found tough/spent too much time on. This is the best way to learn and with practice, you should find yourself steadily improving. You should keep a track of your scores on the next page so you can track your progress.

Use these to keep a record of your scores – you can then easily see which paper you should attempt next (always the one with the lowest score).

Extra Practice

If you’re blessed with a good memory, you might remember the answers to certain questions in the past papers – making it less useful to repeat them again. If you want to tackle extra mock papers which are fully up-to-date then check out www.uniadmissions.co.uk/bmat-practice-papers for 4 x full mock papers with worked solutions.

These are normally £60 but as thanks for purchasing this book, you can get them for £40 instead. Just enter “BMATWS20” at checkout.
