About the BMAT Summer Course:
As a medic, if you’re applying to one of the eight universities that require the BMAT (Brighton and Sussex Medical School, Imperial, Lancaster University, University College London (UCL), University of Cambridge, University of Leeds and University of Oxford), you will know how important this exam is. In other words, it’s absolutely key to get a high score in this test to be called to the all-important medical interview.
Now, the BMAT is split into three sections. Section one is problem solving and critical thinking (thinking skills). Section two is a science based section and section three is an essay-based task. The majority of students like yourself who are sitting the BMAT will be studying science subjects at school. So normally, section two doesn’t provide too much of an issue. Section three is something that requires lots of independent practice to get right!
However, section one, the critical thinking and problem solving section, is something that proves quite challenging to a lot of medical applicants because it doesn’t directly relate to the subjects you are studying at school.
Critical thinking requires you to read a passage of text and quickly comprehend it in order to be able to draw logical conclusions from it, such as what the conclusion of the passages are, what flaws are in the argument, or what would strengthen or weaken the argument, as well as what assumptions it relies on.
So, due to popular demand, we are holding a two-day BMAT Section 1 Summer School. Day 1 will focus on critical thinking and Day 2 will focus on problem solving.
Here at the Oxford formula, we’ve devised a set of very unique techniques for each of the question types that you will come across. So if you like formulas, and algorithms for being able to answer even verbal reasoning/comprehension style question and comprehension/critical thinking style questions, then this is very much a course for you.
We make use of multiple different algorithms, symbols and mnemonics so that you get to learn a formulaic way of approaching these questions which you might otherwise find really tricky.
About the BMAT online resources:
In addition to the summer school, we haven’t forgotten section two or section three! We are the only providers of full video solutions for all 95% of all past BMAT questions and we’ve got hundreds of extra questions in our bank, which all have video solutions.
What is the advantage of a video solution? Well, if you just have a written one, when you look at it, you’ve lost the benefit of the question. You’ve seen how to do the question and you don’t have a chance to do it yourself. However with a video you can watch it through and pause it when you’ve got enough of a hint to continue yourself and then carry on with the question. Plus, at the end, you can go ahead and watch it to find the quickest and most efficient route through that question
Students like you know have giving our resources glowing reviews and they come highly recommended.
About the Medicine and Dentistry Application Masterclasses:
In addition to preparing you for the UCAT exam, we haven’t forgot forgotten about the number of hoops that medical or dental applicants have to jump through in order to gain their place at medical school.
This includes everything from making sure you have a highly effective personal statement, being fully prepared for the MMI or panel style interviews, being well versed with medical ethics, understanding how to communicate effectively with patients etc.
In our weekly Medicine Masterclass, which we’re going to be holding from August to December, we will be discussing all of these topics and more. The sessions will be held in a highly interactive format on zoom with current Oxbridge medical tutors, giving you tips from those who have gone through the application processes themselves!
About the 1-1 Tuition:
If you purchase this package you will be matched up with a highly qualified Medic/Dentistry tutor who has themselves scored extremely highly in the whole application process and they will be able to guide your son or daughter through this truly challenging and competitive process.
About the 3 x 1-1 Mock Interviews:
The interview is an extremely important part of the process and many students have never had an interview in their lives let alone one which is going to be so technical in nature. Here at The Oxbridge Formula, we support students with MMI interviews, panel interviews, or indeed Oxbridge interviews if Oxbridge is one of their choices. If you sign up for this set of three mock interviews, you will receive an extremely realistic experience but will also receive detailed feedback and guidance for improving your performance further. The 1-1 mock interviews are a highly coveted part of this course and are something that you will really benefit from.
