This guide provides an overview of the scientific and mathematical knowledge which BMAT Section 2 questions can draw on. You will have covered much of this content in your school-based study of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. Where you have not covered a topic or would like more revision, use this guide as a study tool alongside support from your teachers, textbooks or reliable online resources.
If you have any problems accessing the guide, please contact Admissions Testing Support.
The guide is for on-screen reading only – it cannot be downloaded or printed, and it is currently not accessible on mobile devices.
To familiarise yourself with the way that BMAT Section 2 assesses scientific knowledge and application, we suggest that you practise with past papers (without a calculator). Start off by trying questions without worrying about timing, and then apply time constraints so that you build up to working under exam conditions. After sitting any past paper, mark your answers, and then review where you have gaps in your knowledge. Some topics in previous practice papers are NO LONGER examined. Check the BMAT Section 2: Assumed Subject Knowledge guide and only study these topics if they are present in the guide.
