Hi,

All I got in an email was it's a multiple choice assessment on maths and physics, mostly GCSE level with a couple of A level questions.

Did they give you guidance on what to revise for ?

No, they said not to try and revise as this is not an entrance exam and is to test a students applitude and see what areas they are strong and weak at.

So I'd say just try and nail down anything you're particularly weak on maths/physics wise.

They don't give you any, it's non-calculator and gcse level for the most part with a couple of A level questions in there
