MAT – Oxford Mathematics Admissions Test

The Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT) is the entrance exam for Mathematics and Computer Science degrees at Oxford University*.  Practical information and past papers with solutions can be found at the official MAT website.  I sat a version of this paper when I was accepted to Oxford to study Maths and I have helped a lot of students prepare for this paper whilst teaching at top private schools in London.

The syllabus for the MAT can be found here.

If you’re preparing for the MAT, you can work through my video solutions to 40 short answer questions and 16 long answer questions from the papers from 2016 to 2020 in this free course. The same content can be found via YouTube here:

Previously this page contained links to videos of solutions to the papers from the 2016 to 2020 but I have had to remove these from YouTube.  I am looking into ways to make this content available again soon.
