Physics Aptitude Test Packages (PAT)

The Physics Aptitude Test is taken by applicants to University of Oxford applying to Engineering, Materials Science and Physics. Most of these courses will use the PAT to deselect applicants from interview, so strong preparation is critical.

The PAT tests a student’s ability to solve unfamiliar maths and physics problems by applying their pre-existing mathematical knowledge.

Improve your chances of performing well in the PAT by practicing these skills.
