# Oxford MAT 2013/2014 Watch

Yes, usually slightly higher. They also assured someone else here a couple of years ago that they definitely do not compare scores across different applied for degrees, not that anybody necessarily expected them to.
No. It doesn't need to be higher, when someone applies for maths or any of the joint degrees they are all lumped into one big category, there's no limit on how many people they'll accept for Maths & CS or Maths & Phil, they'll literally just accept the best of the bunch at interview, regardless of what they've applied for. If it happens that those who get in for Maths & CS have a slightly higher MAT, it's not because you need to have a higher one, just that those they accepted did.

what was the answer for q1 part (ii)? the refelction of y=sinx q?
I'm fairly sure it was sinx+4.

What did people get for the last part of question 5? I got 40095 but both my friends got around 50,000
I believe I got 13500.

What was the answer for the area bound by the curve and the straight line?
If I remember correctly, pi/4-1/root2.

ohh alright thanks! and for q1 part (iii) i got (c) as my answer but i dont remember the value. the fx gx hx question. what did you guys get?
6. I just figured how out how I messed the shaded area question :/ It was so easy with geometry but I made a mistake trying to use integrals, Dammmmnn me.

Btw did anyone get f(t)=(2t-1)^3/2 for the functional equation question?

Yes! I guessed right! I had no clue whatsoever on how to do this, so I just looked at what was likely, and pi/4-1/root2 stood out to me as being logical.
8. Hi, I'm applying for maths and philosophy and I'm devastated about this test, I think I probably got in the 40s (Max 55) I panicked on question four and so only answered the first two parts of 5... I got 9 A*s at GCSE and have a 4 A* prediction, do you think they'll still interview me?

I think I got something with (2x) at the end of it, but I wasn't sure.

I dont remember exact value .. but i remember B... pretty sure on that.

I guessed the same answer for that question too after making some approximations and getting no-where

it was h(2x)

I think I got f(t)=t.g(t). There are probably infinite solutions, though.

it was h(2x)
in the question was there g'(X) and h(x)'s only,, or was there also a f(x) in there somewhere?

same with u

i think just h stuff

i really hope h(2x) is option c :P

also in q3 we had to transform fk(x) to f (2-k)x. that really baffled me :s
18. I'm really gutted about how this went for me, I think I could have done so much better. I have 11 A*s for GCSE, four As at AS and predicted 4A*s, do you think they might still interview me even though my score is probably below average?
19. What did people get on the first question? I was fairly sure is was a>2 but now I'm not sure anymore.
Could we set up a document of all multiple choice questions and the answers that everybody agrees on? I'm sure our collective memory is good enough to remember all the questions!

Below average would probably be sub-50-ish. I'm not going to say you definitely won't get an interview with that score (because they can 'rescue' students who fall under the cut-off), but you'll have a lot to prove if you do!
