    Fortunately I'm not doing it.

    I'm a parent... of a Cambridge student who got a place before they introduced this test

    Have you looked at the specimen papers for the ENGAA? Here's the link for it if you haven't:
    http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...y-requirements
    You need to scroll down a bit.

    Also, does anyone know if we're expected to complete the whole of Section 1 in 80 minutes?
