The BMAT (BioMedical Admissions Tests) is a subject-specific admissions test taken by applicants to medicine, veterinary science and related courses at Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial College, UCL and Royal Veterinary College. With more students than ever achieving A grades at A-level, BMAT testing is becoming increasingly popular as a way for universities to identify the most able and dedicated applicants. How to Master the BMAT consists of six sections of revision materials for the maths, physics, chemistry and biology components of the BMAT, with additional notes for problem solving and the writing task. At the end of each of these six sections, a set of review questions enables you to check that you have the necessary core knowledge (some of which you will have already acquired through your GCSE and A-level studies). The additional mock tests should be attempted under exam conditions for the best possible preparation. They provide the equivalent of three full BMAT tests (nine papers). Whatever your knowledge base you are supported throughout the book and where possible each question is complete with revision topics, indicated in brackets.
