Mathematics Admissions Test Packages (MAT)
The Mathematics Admissions Test is taken by applicants to Imperial College London, Oxford and Warwick applying to Computer Science, Mathematics and its joint courses. Most of these courses will use the MAT to deselect applicants from interview, so strong preparation is critical.
The MAT tests a student’s ability to solve unfamiliar maths problems by applying their pre-existing mathematical knowledge.
