2022 Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing tests and posting rules

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 following tests are being administered on 18 and 19 October 2022:


BMAT (BioMedical Admissions Test)

ENGAA (Engineering Admissions Assessment)

NSAA (Natural Sciences Admissions Assessment)

TMUA (Test of Mathematics for University Admission)


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.

For example:

"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 the start of Tuesday 18 October until the end of Tuesday 25 October.

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!

Do you know if we’re allowed to cut exam papers using sharp prncil. I think it would help me in spatial reasoning

Idk if we're allowed, but i plan on ripping my page out if there are any cube nets. I don't know why we wouldn't be allowed to but I may be wrong.

My exam was online last year but I was given spare paper just to kot down some workings, might be better to ask for that:smile:

I would ask the invigilator before the exam if its ok. Those questions have been specifically designed to make you visualise the space and think it through. They are awful questions, i never get them right lol. But i wouldn't go ripping paper without checking first just because it could get you disqualified as it isn't really how they want you to answer it. Better safe than sorry.

Yeah I will probably ask before, just in case. Don't want to end up getting disqualified over one question.
