2021 Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing tests and posting rulesWatch
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing’s tests (used by the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, other Medical schools and other Maths courses) are taken internationally.
As a result, some candidates in one country may have already completed a test that hasn't yet started elsewhere.
The tests are as follow:
- BMAT (BioMedical Admissions Test)
- CAT (Classics Admissions Test)
- ECAA (Economics Admissions Assessment)
- ELAT (English Literature Admissions Test)
- ENGAA (Engineering Admissions Assessment)
- HAT (History Aptitude Test)
- MAT (Mathematics Admissions Test)
- MLAT (Modern Languages Admissions Test)
- NSAA (Natural Sciences Admissions Assessment)
- OLAT (Oriental Languages Aptitude Test)
- PAT (Physics Aptitude Test)
- TSA (Thinking Skills Assessment)
- TMUA (Test of Mathematics for University Admission)
- University of Oxford Philosophy Test
Test-takers should not post test questions or discuss answers. These restrictions will extend to discussions about the content of tests, specific questions or question numbers and provisional test answers.
This, however, does not mean all discussion about these tests will be restricted. It's okay to talk about having just sat the test, or whether or not you found it difficult. What is not okay is giving away any information that might cause one student to have an unfair advantage over another with prior knowledge of any questions.
- "I found it hard" and "I found question 2 hard" are fine.
- "I found question 2 about <insert subject> hard", and any discussion of a topic beyond that, are not fine.
These restrictions will be in place from 9:00 GMT on Wednesday 3 November until 1 December 2021.
In the interests of yourselves and your fellow students, and in the interest of maintaining the fairness of the test, please avoid discussion as outlined above during this timeframe.
Don’t disadvantage yourself!
PLEASE NOTE: this rule applies to any form of discussion, including, but not limited to, discussions in forums and PMs (Private Messages).
If you see anyone breaking these rules, please report them by using the report button.
Good luck to everyone sitting these tests!
