    I did c12 and F1 and S1 edexcel ial maths this year during my AS LEVEL as well as physics. Will this alone be sufficient to ace the Physics aptitude test? I checked the 2015 past paper and it seems manageable however the previous years seem beyond my scope. What are your views? Thanks for your help

    It's impossible to say how well you'd do. The thing with Oxford admissions tests tends to be timing, so you really really should practise using the past physics and also possibly maths papers. Good luck

    Tnx a lot for ur help. I would like to ask whether it is worth doing the PAT without having done any mechanics units? (I will be doing M1 and later M2 when school reopens)

    The difficulty varies from year to year, but usually an easy paper in the year before leads to a harder paper the year after and vice versa (like 2014&15 and 2012&13), so this might well mean this year's PAT will be much harder.

    You can do the PAT without mechanics units as long as you've cover physics AS mechanics and part of A2 mechanics (they expect you to do this yourself).
    You will also need to self study other parts of A2 physics as by november this probably has not been taught in school.

    Good luck!
