How to cover content on the official BMAT specification

The specification provides an overview of the science and maths topics which BMAT Section 2 questions can draw on. Since time is limited, it is not efficient to work through the topics in the order they are presented. I would recommend first doing a comfortability test by skimming through the document and ticking the topics that you are confident in solving problems. Then, begin working on the unticked areas before moving onto ticked topics. You can find a more detailed step-by-step breakdown here.

I would go as far as to say that it is almost not worth doing a BMAT paper unless you can spend an adequate amount of time reviewing results. One approach is the SWOT method. It works by identifying four key elements: Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunity and Threats. You can find a quick breakdown here. For detailed step-by-step guidance, check out my BMAT study guide.
