Cambridge TMUA Test Date 2023 - Can't Attend

I am from Scotland, and our holidays differ from England. I am unable to attend the test date of 18th October 2023 for the TMUA as I am on a long-haul international flight that I cannot reschedule. I have no idea what to do next, as this wasn't even a possibility before. Does this mean I just can't apply?

I suppose I could apply for Maths as the STEP is in June, or apply for Oxford and take the MAT, but my dream is Cambridge for CompSci.

ah sorry to hear it! I did manage to cancel the flights eventually but my parents had to pay extra. i’m taking it the morning of the flight. my other option would be to take a gap year & do industry experience & then reapply

Do all test centres have to start the test at the same time? Like i have a flight at like 10am so would the test centre all me to sit the test at like 6:00

thanks

i’m assuming you’ve contacted the admissions office of the uni you’re applying to? if it’s extenuating circumstances & not a family holiday (like mine was) i think they exempt u & make u sit a similar test later
