I am going to sit the Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT) this year as a part of my application. I started preparing for it by solving past papers and I personally detected two major problems - the time we are given and the style of our solutions. I normally do not try to write clearly and understandably which is not a problem at school. However, this may result in me not getting all the marks if I do not succeed in convincing the people who are going to check it afterwards at Oxford. On the other hand, when I do pay attention to my solutions and whether they are as good as possible, I end up wasting 30-45 minutes for a question that I normally finish for 15 minutes. This is a big concern, because I might not be able to complete the tasks given fast enough and then have a miserable result on the exam. So, is it worth it to spend so much time writing down every detail and possibly have no time left for the whole test, or I'd better try doing it as fast as possible so as to manage to solve the tasks given even it worsens the clarity of my solutions?
Which unis have sent theirs?
