How to Master the BMAT: Unbeatable Preparation for Success in the BioMedical Admissions Test

Thinking of applying to the new Medical School at NTU?

NTU’s application requires the BMAT (Biomedical Admissions Test). Applicants will have to register for the Biomedical Admissions Test (BMAT) and take the BMAT as part of the criteria for entry to the LKCMedicine MBBS programme.

BMAT is useful for applying to Britain’s medical schools too.

NTU only takes in 50-150 students per year, out of Singapore’s entire population! Hence, one can imagine it is definitely not easy to get into NTU medicine.

How to get into NTU Medicine

According to this article by Straits Times, “the final 54 chosen medical students – all Singaporeans – had almost perfect scores in the interviews and also aced their BioMedical Admissions Test (BMAT).”

Getting 4 As is too extremely common in top JCs like RJC or HCI (pick any random guy from the top JCs and he/she is likely to have 4As), hence the distinguishing factor would be your BMAT score.

The BMAT is set by the British, and hence unlike anything students have seen in Singapore. In particular the format and style are different from the standard Singaporean style of testing.

Currently the acceptance rate for NTU medicine is 54/800 (6.75% acceptance rate), which means that getting into NTU medicine is as hard as getting into Ivy League Universities like Harvard / Princeton!!! (Harvard = 5.9% Acceptance Rate, Princeton = 7.4% Acceptance Rate)

Singaporeans are known to be extremely keen when it comes to studying Medicine / Law, and hence competition is definitely going to increase, and a good BMAT book will help you rise above the competition.

NTU Medicine Interview (Does NTU Medicine need interview?)

Yes, NTU Medicine does have interview, in fact it has Eight Interviews.

Many top scorers (4As, perfect score, perfect portfolio) have unfortunately been weeded out at the interview if they are not adept at interviews or verbally expressing themselves. This is very unfortunate for those who have studied so hard, but yet got eliminated at the interview stage, and have to go to Australia to study Medicine (costs half a million SGD!!!) or even abandon their dream of being a doctor.

Fortunately, Medicine Interview is something that you can prepare for. Do be prepared for an answer to the question “Why do you want to study Medicine?”. The interviewers are looking for compassionate doctors, not money-minded individuals who want to fatten their bank account.

The interview would be a bit difficult for quiet / introverted people, which is a pity, since introverts can be very good doctors too. Interviews tend to favor extroverts, or those who are adept at self-promotion (do be humble though). Hence, if you are more of an introvert, you would need to work doubly hard to prepare for the interview.
