Hi, so I am applying for computer science this year for university and I just had a question about the MAT. So, I am applying to Oxford, as well as Warwick, Durham, Southampton and Bristol. I was wondering if I screw the MAT up, will the results be shared with any of these universities (apart from Oxford)? I know for Mathematics Durham, and I believe Warwick would get the results, so is this true still for computer science? Just want to know to decide whether it is worth the risk applying to Oxford.

I can’t see any scenario in which taking the MAT would negatively impact your application to unis that don’t require the MAT.

When you sign up for the MAT, you or your exams officer will have the option to say which universities automatically get sent your MAT result. You can see more near the bottom of the page here.

I prob got 8-9 on mult. choice, but on the long answer i didnt get past part iv on any, so will likely get 6-7 on each, meaning less than average for an interviewed student

That’s good to be honest. 8-9 on multiple choice already gives you 32-36%. +6-7% for each longer question could be a good 60%-70%. Certainly good enough for an intervjew

I can’t exactly remember J lol. I found Q2 to be easier than some multiple choice, probably just the pressure.
