Thinking Skills Assessment Packages (TSA)

The TSA is an exam taken by applicants to ten different courses across Oxford, Cambridge and UCL, including PPE, Economics and Management and Land Economy. Most of these courses will use TSA scores to deselect applicants from interview, so strong preparation is critical.

Intended to complement other preparation which students undertake, the online course includes:

  • 15 modules covering both sections of the TSA
  • Lessons on the key skills to apply to the different question types
  • Practice questions with worked solutions
  • Sample writing task questions and model answers
  • Timed practice tests

Each lesson ends with a short test, on which students must score 70% before they can progress to the next module. The test ends with a full 90-minute timed paper. All content is unique to this test, making it an excellent starting point in preparation before students go on to complete more past papers.

Once you book, you will be emailed your unique login details to access the online course within 48 hours. 

Online only:

16 modules covering all sections of the TSA, lessons on the key skills to apply to the different question types, practice questions with worked solutions, sample writing task questions and model answers, timed practice tests.
