    I'm applying to Oxford for Computer Science. Sitting the exam on the 2nd November. Is Oxford the only one of my choices that can see my result?

    I want to know so that I know if I should put extra effort into preparing for the exam.

    Choices include:

    KCL
    UCL
    Imperial
    Warwick

    If it's Oxfords admissions exam, none of the other universities will see it.

    I'm not well versed in Comp Sci, but Oxford do their own testing. Unless the other universities specify that certain test for entry, then no. Just them.

    The MAT is also used by Imperial College London, however I *think* just for actual Mathematics, rather than their two Computing degrees (if that is what you are applying for). It is also used by Warwick for Mathematics courses. So it may depend on the course you are applying for.

    You might want to ask Imperial or Warwick, or someone at Computer Science in Oxford. If not then I would assume that your MAT result might be available to Imperial and/or Warwick.

    The courses I'm applying for are all based around Computer Science. There aren't any joint courses with Mathematics. I've also just emailed them to hopefully find out more.

    Only Oxford uses the MAT for Computer Science. If you've applied for CS at other universities, they won't see you result. If you've applied for Maths at Imperial or Warwick, they will see your result.

    Update: I ended up emailing oxford admissions and they said that imperial warwick and oxford could all see the results regardless of the course you pick but I've been made offers from both warwick and kcl so i doubt it matters for computer science (only matters to oxford/imperial)
