BMAT test summary

Number of Papers: 3

Paper Format: Pen & paper test

Timing: 2 hours

No. of Questions:
Section 1 - 35 multiple-choice or short answer
Section 2 - 27 multiple-choice or short answer
Section 3 - 1 question from a choice of 4 essay questions


For preparing BMAT check this http://www.admissionstests.cambridgeassessment.org.uk/adt/bmat/Test+Preparation

I read that the best book is the official one which is "Preparing for the BMAT".


UKCAT test summary:

It consists of four subtests:
 -Verbal reasoning - assesses candidates' ability to think logically about written information and arrive at a reasoned conclusion.
 -Quantitative reasoning - assesses candidates' ability to solve numerical problems.
 -Abstract reasoning - assesses candidates' ability to infer relationships from information by convergent and divergent thinking.
 - Decision Analysis - assesses candidates' ability to deal with various forms of information to infer relationships, to make informed judgements, and to decide on an appropriate response.

Waste of time. Get some sample exam papers and do them. Much better.
