    Dunno - sorry...

    Keep an eye on http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...es/engineering

    The NSAA (NatSci) has the same - they have explained Section 1 but not Section 2 (yet?).

    You can:
    Do past A-level multi-choice questions
    Do the Oxford PAT
    Do the AS-Challege and BPhO and A2 challenge
    Visit Isaacphysics or i-want-to-study-engineering.com
    just do test book questions under time pressure. I hope this helps!

    Good luck!

    I did about 40 I think, although got some wrong.
    Did all of them, got 48 correct. Got 20 in the second part though.
