Can anyone from last year or this year who has done the online admissions test for Computer Science Undergraduate tell me what kind of questions there are on the test and brought how many. I have read some forums and they all say Maths and Logic Questions. Does anyone have any clue of what topics from A Level Maths. Also what is a logic question - is there any where that I can look at and practice ' logic' questions from. Also I have never done Computer Science GCSE or A Level before so is there anything new that I should go over before the test to help me. Thanks?

I am applying to imperial too, for the computer science (AI and Ml) course.I am lookingfor an answer to this question as well....so looking forward to the replies you receive.
Btw for logic questions you could try the nrich site: https://nrich.maths.org/10352
or even this one to sharpen your math skills: i-want-to-study-engineering.org/
You could try the logic questions from the Oxford MAT although these are relatively harder than all other admission tests ig.

what other universities have you applied to?

I am also applying for the AI and ML course; the test was today!
I believe it was fairly straight forward and got > 70%.
Is this a good range to be in? When do they give responses?
How did you guys think you did?

Does everyone do the test at the same time, or do they spread it out a bit? I'm applying JMC MEng, and haven't heard back yet, but I know of someone that is doing their test this Friday. Thanks

Is there any reason why they have chosen to give tests to some people before others or is it just alphabetical/date applied?

i havnt sat the test myself yet.. but i do know (from previous years students) that the comp sci questions are not too hard.. questions based on loops, maybe a logic question...cs teacher made us practice some variable change questions and stuff like that.

I guess if you go online and try out basic programming questions from a level past papers and get a feel of them you will be fine.
try this website if ur completely new to cs geeksforgeeks.org

I do cs so feel free to pm me if u have any doubts.
All the best!
