Section 2 (Scientific Knowledge and Applications)

Since BMAT is an entrance exam for Medicine and Dentistry, it is important to assess the candidate’s basic scientific knowledge.

Section 2 includes questions from Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics.

You are given 30 minutes to answer 27 questions. This means that you have just over a minute to answer each question.

The level of scientific knowledge you need is GCSE and AS level. Since the BMAT is usually taken by students in Year 13, it is very rare that questions from A2 are asked.

Again, just like Section 1, certain questions in Section 2 also take up more time than other questions. It is important for you to know which questions take up more time and which questions take up less time.

e.g. If you are strong in Biology, answer Biology-related questions first.
