    In October this year, I'm hoping to apply to Oxford for PPE. However, I don't do A Level Maths and am required to successfully complete a thinking skills assessment to get an interview and i'm extremely worried about it. Should I be preparing now ? Has anybody who has done this got any tips or advice?

    I have done the TSA last year and got an offer for PPE afterwards. You don't need to worry about the test, it does not require any particular skills that you'd learn in A-Levels Maths and you definitely do not need to (and even shouldn't) prepare for it now. Past papers available at TSA website are more than enough and I would advise taking them no sooner than a month before the test date and preferably even later as there are not too many of them.

    Good luck and do not worry, just focus on your grades and developing your interest for PPE subjects now.
