    Right, so for people looking to apply to the Cambridge Natural Sciences course, there's now an entrance exam to be taken (yayyy... :/ ). But, I can find absolutely no resources online, no mock tests, anything of the sort! So, if anyone knows where to find such things (or has other tricks up their sleeves to get around this) please do share. Otherwise, how are people preparing for it? How is everyone finding the few specimen questions that Cambridge has published?

    That's because it's a new test.

    Hey! I'm also applying for Natsci this year - are you physical or biological?

    I don't know if you've seen it, but there is a mock paper and a specification here

    http://www.undergraduate.study.cam.a...y-requirements

    Other than that, I've been doing the oxford PAT maths parts to practice for the maths section, as it's also non-calculator! If you plan to do physics, I assume the physics questions will also be good practice

    https://www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/study-...at-past-papers

    I plan to do the biology/chemistry sections, so I've been reading/doing some past papers from the biology and chemistry olympiad, as they're quite challenging, so I think they;ll be good practice to do unseen stuff and applying your own knowledge. I'm sure the physics olympiad papers will be helpful, too!

    Links for convenience:
    http://www.ukbiologycompetitions.org...piad/syllabus/
    http://www.rsc.org/learn-chemistry/r...id=CMP00007605

    Otherwise, I've just been reading books, reading the textbooks for things we haven't studied yet in case they come up, going over AS stuff, making sure it's all 100% there

    edit: one more things I forgot about!
