    Title. Just curious as to if it's true.

    Sorry if that's blunt but I - it is an aptitude test. It is not the only piece of information used to decide on interview and selection. Applications are viewed holistically with significant weighting on the MAT but not all. In MAT all candidates applying are judged to be of similar calibre and intelligence and thus there is no differentiation in 'pass' mark unless extenuating circumstances such as illness apply
