    Hello, Im applying to Cambridge this cycle for economics, and need to sit the new admissions test. For its problem solving questions, Ive been doing TSA. I want to know which one is harder for problem solving- TSA OR BMAT?

    BMAT is irrelevant - it's for medicine.

    Clearly you've never looked at a BMAT paper; Section 1 contains both Critical Thinking and Problem Solving questions similar to, but not identical to, those found in the TSA. The first section of the new ECAA for Economics has a section containing Problem Solving questions identical in style to those in the TSA. So in response to the OP I would suggest that the TSA Problem Solving questions are most helpful for the new Economics test, although looking at a few BMAT Section 1 papers wouldn't hurt either.
