The topics that Section 2 questions can draw on are also listed in the BMAT test specification below.
BMAT test specification
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. It is marked in each paper which questions are currently off specification.
