    Hi, I am preparing for the MAT this year and I am getting scores of around 60-70 on past papers and I have taken all past papers except for 2016. I am wondering how I can improve my score further and in particular how I can improve my score on question 4, which is usually a geometry question. What do the people who get scores of 80-90 do that I and others don't...? Are there any good geometry practice websites featuring questions like the ones asked in the MAT? I know of the RZC, which I have already exhausted.

    Thanks for any help!

    Sorry I can't help, I also usually get 60-70 myself but am far from completing all the past papers so far. But as you said question 4 is usually on geometry, do you know what the other questions' general themes are?

    Well once you have gone through all the past papers I think you will find (or atleast I found it to be so) that question 2 is usually an algebra question, question three is a question on functions (sketching, finding areas, etc.) and question 5 is pretty much random, but most of the time it will be on simple combinatorics or common sense kind of logic.
    P.S. If you haven't heard of the Riemann zeta club/ Dr frost I would recommend you look at it, because they give a similar overview to the one I gave and have practice problems for each "theme".
