How to begin preparation for the MAT?Watch
I was wondering what the best way to go about starting preparation for the MAT? I will be wanting to apply to Imperial for Maths and Statistics, which obviously requires the MAT.
Thanks a bunch!
Just dive in, really. Start with some of the older past papers, do questions. Refuse to look at the solutions for days. Try different approaches even if you get the question right, see if there's a faster way, etc...
Start with the oldest one on the website. There's a MAT prep thread on TSR that'll link you to the even older papers but i cba looking it up rn. I'd still advise doing the oldest of the most recent lot. So starting from 2006/7 sounds optimal. Then goging back to the older ones once you've done up till 2011/12.
Also the missing ones which aren't on there (1996, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005) can be found at http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4244864, as I managed to obtain them via a Freedom of Information Act request.
