I found 2011 - 2017 (excluding 2015 that paper was horrific) to be of similar difficulty. But apparently it gets noticeably harder after 2017.

so good scores in the early papers dont guarantee youll do well in the later ones?

Heya!
Practice is the best way to prepare for the admissions test so make sure to do them + look at the mark scheme to see where you went wrong.
If you need any extra material for MAT, I would recommend checking out Oxbridge Mind website for free MAT resource (free past papers, notes and articles). You can also use other past papers like STEP to practice for the MAT exam :h:
Good luck and I hope this helps!

not really, 2020 was somewhat easy (though the % for an offer was super high). I don't know if it's an anomaly or things will be much worse this year

Good scores in the early papers definitely is a good sign, just keep practicing!

I feel like it was an anomaly (maybe COVID had something to do with it)
Does anyone have any tips for how to improve in question 1? I feel like that's the only aspect bringing down my score :/
