Applying for Oxford geography 2024 ? GAT?

I am interested in environmental sciences / geography and I'm looking at the geography at Oxford in 2024. I noticed there is a Geography Admissions Test and i wonder if would it be a huge challenge and disadvantage to the application process. thanks
It's similar to the TSA that other humanitarian subjects have - its mainly assessing your critical thinking and anaysis
Details of the new GAT for oxford geography can be found here.

As it says, it tests for Critical thinking, Problem solving and Essay writing in response to unseen material.
These are the skills you would need to take the course, and therefore it's designed to see if you have the right aptitude.
