Our BMAT & UCAT Tutors 

Students applying for medicine and dentistry at university are put to their paces with aptitude tests and interviews. The two most common assessments used by universities are the BioMedical Admissions Test, known as the BMAT, and the University Clinical Aptitude Test, known as the UCAT.  

Both these assessments examine candidates’ academic and practical skills, and a good result is the first step towards a university offer. 

Our BMAT and UCAT tutors rigorously prepare teenagers for these important tests, allowing them to stand out from a highly competitive crowd. Whether your child is nervous about the mathematics section, or struggles with verbal reasoning, our tutors are here to help them shine. 

Ranging from experienced science teachers to first-class Oxbridge graduates, all of our BMAT and UCAT tutors were subject to a demanding recruitment process. Every candidate applying to become a tutor with us must provide proof of their qualifications, attend an interview, supply at least two references and own a DBS certificate. Only the very best succeed.

How our tutors prepare students

Entrance exams for medicine and dentistry test a broad range of skills. The UCAT is the most commonly used exam, and is is split into five different sections: verbal reasoning, decision making, quantitative reasoning, abstract reasoning and situational judgment.

Meanwhile, the BMAT tests problem solving skills; scientific and mathematical knowledge; and essay writing. 

Our bespoke learning programmes equip teenagers with the necessary knowledge to excel across the board. What’s more, we are attentive to the needs of individual pupils, homing in on areas for improvement and developing existing skills.

Practice papers form a key part of our teaching to ensure teenagers know exactly what to expect on the day itself. Students also benefit from one-to-one discussions, tailored revision techniques, and further reading suggestions.


The BMAT is a pen-and-paper aptitude test for prospective medical and dentistry students. The exam is split into three sections and students must attempt each one – it is important to have many strings to your bow!

Section 1 tests problem solving skills; how well students understand arguments; and their ability to analyse data. Calculators are not allowed, so speedy mental maths is a must.

Section 2 is typically based on knowledge from school Science and Maths courses. Importantly, however, this section tests candidates’ ability to apply the knowledge they have acquired in the classroom – possibly in unfamiliar contexts. Our tutors ensure students are up-to-date with the relevant topics and can approach this section with confidence. 

Section 3 is a writing task, as opposed to a test of knowledge, and looks at how candidates communicate. Students are asked to write a short essay to prove they can express themselves clearly and can formulate an argument.


The UCAT is a multiple-choice, computer-based exam that lasts for two hours. Unlike the BMAT, it does not have an essay writing section. 

Verbal reasoning asks students to critically evaluate information presented in a written form. Decision making assesses their ability to make sound judgements using complex information. Quantitative reasoning is numbers based. Abstract reasoning uses shapes and sequences to test spatial awareness. Last but not least, situational judgment measures candidates’ capacity to understand real world situations.

Our tutors teach face-to-face and online, using a range of digital tools. We currently teach a diverse range of students from around the world.
