Depending on the choice of University, University Course, and Year of application, below are some sample Admissions Test Papers that you may find useful. It is very important to check the websites of the relevant Universities and Courses for the most up-to-date information on the relevant admissions tests required for your application.

UPDATE: Due to A-level reform in the UK, and specifically syllabus reform of A-level Mathematics, the MAT Syllabus was updated in 2018. The remainder theorem, radians, and the trapezium rule were removed, whilst combinations and binomial probabilities, differentiation from first principles and other topics were added.


Note: The format of the Physics Aptitude Test has evolved.
Past papers and sample papers dated from May 2006 but before May 2008 involve two separate papers: one for Physics, one for Maths. Calculators were permitted in the physics test but not the maths test. These papers can therefore provide general guidance on the likely content of future papers but retain the old format and can include quite complicated numerical computations on the physics papers.
UPDATE: As of 2017, the format of the Physics Aptitude Test changed – multiple choice questions were re-introduced, and the Physics and Maths sections were mixed up with one another rather than kept as two distinct sections. Calculators have been permitted since 2018.
In 2015, multiple choice questions were eliminated. Long physics problems worth 20 marks were also eliminated in favour of shorter questions worth less than 10 marks each.
