    Hi, somewhere on TSR, I once found a link to a video of an Oxford physics admissions tutor showing Physics Aptitude Test statistics. It was a talk about 50 minutes long and showed the strong correlation between the PAT score and success rate. He also concluded in the video that the personal statement is not as important for Oxford physics.

    Does anyone know where I can find the video? It was on an external site, not on TSR and not on youtube.

    Thanks

    Not sure on the video but everything you said is correct.
    The PAT is super important and well worth revising beforehand.

    If you google you can find the answers to many of the papers, but they are not officially provided (annoyingly)
