    Hi everyone! For those of you have previously sat the HAT, what would you advise in terms of prep?

    I’m struggling a bit with question 1 because I’m not really used to summarising arguments and stuff. Does anyone have any advice on how to hone those skills?

    Also, how would you structure the essay questions?

    I know you’re not meant to do loads of preparation but I don’t feel very confident yet.

    Thanks in advance!

    Use past papers & marking guides provided on Oxford website. I did not prepare enough but I'd say the best way to learn is to do at least 2-3 practice papers under exam conditions & get teachers/others to review/mark...ask them to be critical. There are people offering model answers etc. but I've always found trying to do things myself then discussing with teachers a better learning experience.
