Understanding of the terms current ( = charge / time), voltage (potential difference = energy / charge), charge, resistance ( = voltage / current) and links to energy and power (power = voltage x current, power = energy / time). Knowledge of transformers, including how the number of turns on the primary and secondary coils affect the voltage and current. If for any reason your school or college cannot apply for centre authorisation or you are no longer in education, please read the information below on taking your test at an open centre. The following report provides a summaryof theadmissions process for the subjects of Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistics, Mathematicsand Philosophy, Computer Scienceand Mathematics andComputer Science: I know this is ‘simple to say, hard to do’, but I would encourage you to take a deep breath and try to relax; you’ve been revising so hopefully you’ll be able to perform at your best. It’s a bit of a cliche but if you go into the exam and do your best, then that’s something you should always be proud of, however it turns out.

Before answering your questions, I think it’s important to bear two things in mind. First, remember the mark that will get you an interview is normally less than 60% so it’s not a disaster if you haven’t covered 100% of the syllabus because you can afford to drop a few marks if you are strong on the parts of the syllabus that you do know; second, I don’t really know the answers to any question of the form ‘is X on the syllabus’ unless X happens to be mentioned explicitly word-for-word in the syllabus, so take what’s written below with a pinch of salt. Where possible, we would like the additional test to be hosted by schools or colleges; where necessary, remote invigilation will be arranged at home. The additional test will be made available to test centres (or candidates taking the test at home) for printing just before the start of the test on 14 November. The additional test will be administered entirely by the University. The PAT is a subject-specific admissions test, lasting for 2 hours and sat under timed conditions. It is a hybrid test - with online questions and a paper answer booklet. You will need to take this test at an authorised test centre which, in most cases, will be your school or college. All applicants taking this test will be able to practise by taking the 2022 past paper (or equivalent) as a hybrid test in advance of your test day. Please note that as the syllabus and structure of this test has not changed, all the existing resources and practice materials available here are still valuable preparation for you and we strongly recommend exploring these. If you’re solving a quadratic inequality always draw a graph – it takes 2 seconds to draw a rough sketch, and it’s not worth risking losing the marks by trying to hold it all in your head. (In fact, if we could have a single mantra for every maths and physics exam you ever sit it would be draw a diagram!). As you may notice when going through past papers, the PAT has undergone various changes in the past few years.Here are some categories of question in case you want to revise something specific; these are not exhaustive, I haven’t got round to getting these updated yet: You should also be able to use differentiating and setting equal to zero to find stationary points, and differentiating a second time to find the ‘nature’ of the stationary point (i.e. Whether it’s a maxima, minima, or point of inflection).

Below you will find PAT question and answer documents for all PAT past papers, to help you with your PAT preparation It’s almost always best to start any SUVAT question by drawing a diagram in which you define which direction is positive, and which is negative. It’s so easy to make arithmetic mistakes on otherwise straightforward questions if you don’t! Levers (including taking moments about a point on an object), pulleys (including calculating the tension in a rope or the overall motion in a system of ropes and pulleys) and other simple machines combining levers, springs and pulleys. The MAT aims to test the depth of mathematical understanding of a student in the fourth term of their A-levels (or equivalent) rather than a breadth of knowledge. It is set with the aim of being approachable by all students, including those without Further Mathematics A-level, and those from other educational systems (e.g. Baccalaureate and Scottish Highers). You also need to memorise your SUVAT equations and be able to spot the situations in which they’d be inappropriate to use.

Test preparation and practice materials

The way that candidates access the questions is changing for October 2023. Candidates will see the questions on a computer screen. Candidates will write their responses in a paper answer booklet, which will be scanned by their test centre. The PAT is a 2 hour examination in which you are asked a mixture of math and physics questions. To prepare we recommend you read the syllabus; we have provided links to the official syllabus and a slightly more detailed unofficial syllabus . Your mathematics and physics classes should cover most of the syllabus but if you see a topic you are unfamiliar with, you should consult your teacher on how to proceed further. For those who are seeing the PAT for the first time or have already seen it, you may find that the test is quite different/difficult and having a mini freak-out is normal! It's okay to feel this way, the test is designed to be difficult to challenge you. We have provided unofficial but detailed exam solutions and other resources you might find useful. Ifyouwantmorein-depthideasabouthowtoprepare,I'dreferto thepostIwroteaboutthePATor myOxcentricvideosonthesubject(whichincludemostofthemainpointsfromthepost). Authorised schools, colleges and other test centres will be able to register candidates for Oxford’s admissions tests anytime between 1 September and 29 September.

The PAT is designed for candidates who have studied the first year of A-level (or equivalent) Maths and Physics, and covers similar material to that of the GCSE and A-level syllabus. The Mathematical Institute is marking the MAT test as normal. College admissions tutors will have access to a candidate’s UCAS form, the results of the MAT test taken on 19 October, and the results of the additional test, if taken, as well as special consideration forms. Tutors will take all this information into consideration when deciding whether to shortlist a candidate. Familiarise yourself with the syllabus. The material is aimed at AS level maths and physics plus knowledge of material covered at GCSE. However we cannot guarantee when the material will be covered in your school so you might find you need to teach yourself a few topics before the exam.What does this mean? This is essentially another way of say that the PAT has a heavy focus on application rather than base knowledge. Without practicing questions and past papers (and leaving time to review and learn from the questions you got wrong!) – the knowledge about a topic will only go so far. These tests are taken on specific dates each year, a few weeks after the application deadline on 29 September. The next test date for the PAT is:

An understanding of the terms longitudinal and transverse waves; and that waves transfer energy without net movement of matter. Elementary trigonometry including relationships between sine, cosine and tangent (sum and difference formulae will be stated if required).Interpretation of graphs, eg force-distance, distance-time, velocity-time graphs and what the gradient of a curve or area underneath a curve represents. r(t) question with mass projectile being launched off a cliff (do you remember the total marks for this?) Please note that the formulae included in this syllabus do not represent an exhaustive list of formulae which may be used within the test. Syllabus for the Mathematics content Elementary mathematics: I got the right exact answer for it, in terms of lns, but then my last line of working I forgot to times by the factor of 20…. and so my exact answer is right, but my approximate answer with decimals is wrong… sigh
