They should say people can submit their TMUA results from 28 Nov, if they want more data.

i dont think theyll do that cus that's unfair on those that didn't sit the tmua since they don't get the option to send in data that others get to send in

yeah i personally find it easier than the longer questions in normal mat tests. but, oxford has done this before where they only test the mc questions, and they make those mc questions way harder than the mc questions from a normal paper, so I don't think it'll be that unfair.

So will the mc questions on this supplemental paper be harder than normal MC questions on a typical MAT paper?

Another question, if a candidate sends a special consideration form but does not sit the supplemental test, would they look at that in an unfavourable light?

I don't think so; that should just mean that they have coped fine under the pressure.

Iâ€™m going through trying to redo the questions I got wrong, can someone explain how to do the Multiple choice C question, I am getting most of it and I know to use trig but Iâ€™m not getting the right answer still

From the square

1 = R(1+1/sqrt(2)) + r(1+1/sqrt(2))

so

R+r = sqrt(2)/(sqrt(2)+1) = 2-sqrt(2)

If you're gonna fill in the special consideration form you're saying that you were affected. In my opinion, if you were affected you might as well do the supplementary test.

Why does the from the square part equal that

The mat video draws the red line(s) on

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BKGvdK5_Tj4&ab_channel=OxfordMathematics

So the

base (=1) = R + Rcos(45) + rcos(45) + r

as the centres must lie on a diagonal of the square

So does the Rcos45+rcos45 come from the distance between the two centres

It is not required to retake if you don't want to. I understand that the school might submit the special consideration form on behalf of everyone. The disruption for someone is not that significant. If you have completed with good grades, why should it be penalized?

I TAKE BACK ALL MY PREVIOUS QUESTIONS I HAD A BRAIN FART AND DIDNT REALISE THE DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO CENTRES IS JUST THE SUM KF THE TWO RADIIâ€¦â€¦ thank you so much, sorry judt turns out I canâ€™t read lol

Yh that is true, didn't think of it that way

Does anyone have predictions on average MAT scores for shortlisted and accepted applicants? Like, was this year's test easier than last year's?

Also, how lenient are the MAT graders on partial credit?

You can have a look of the previous year MAT report. Quite a few very high score achiever (>90) even didn't get to interview stage.

There will usually be other reasons for this though, so nothing much can be inferred. These could easily be students who are already studying at another university, which Oxford will only exceptionally consider.
