Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
In partnership with the University of Oxford
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is working with the University of Oxford to assist in the administration of its Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT).
The MAT is a paper-based test. It is a 2-hour 30-minute, subject-specific admissions test for applicants to the University of Oxford’s undergraduate degree courses in Mathematics, Computer Science and their joint degrees.
Imperial College London uses the MAT for all of its undergraduate Mathematics course applicants. For details, visit Imperial College's Department of Mathematics website.
If you are applying to the University of Warwick for the Mathematics BSc (G100) degree or Master of Mathematics (G103) degree, you are encouraged to take the MAT, STEP, or the Test of Mathematics for University Admission. Taking a test is not compulsory, however, a good performance on the MAT or the Test of Mathematics for University Admission may result in a reduced offer. For details, visit the University of Warwick’s Mathematics Institute website.
The MAT is set with the aim of being approachable by all students, including those without Further Mathematics A Level (or equivalent).
The University of Oxford is responsible for the setting and development of the MAT, including the test format and scoring. For general information about the test, see the University of Oxford’s Mathematical Institute website.
The MAT takes place on Thursday 2 November 2017, usually at 09.00 GMT. The scheduled start times for international centres will vary, depending upon where they are in the world. For exact timings, please check with your school or centre.
Most candidates will sit the MAT at their own school or college. Other candidates can find an open centre.
Test results are not published automatically. Candidates may request their test results as part of the usual feedback processes for the University of Oxford, Imperial College (see the Imperial undergraduate admissions policy under Admissions), or the University of Warwick.
