Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
You are here:
There is no pass/fail for the Cambridge Test of Mathematics for University Admission (CTMUA) – you should simply aim to do the best you can.
Your final scores are based on the number of correct answers you give. There are no penalties for incorrect answers.
Your score on the test will be based on your overall performance on both papers and will be given on a scale of 1.0 to 9.0, with 1.0 being the lowest and 9.0 the highest. You will also be given a score for each of the two papers that make up the test, both on the 1.0 to 9.0 scale, but these two scores are for information only and do not form part of your formal test result.
CTMUA results will be released automatically to the University of Cambridge.
Results will be released at 0900 UK time on 30 November 2020 via our Metristests system.
You are only entitled to take CTMUA if you are a genuine applicant to the University of Cambridge for Computer Science. However, if you are also applying to other universities who accept the Test of Mathematics for University Admission (TMUA) you do not need to register for TMUA. Your CTMUA results can be shared with other institutions in place of results from TMUA.
CTMUA results are not sent to other institutions automatically. Instead, test-takers must use our Metritests system to check results and release them to their other chosen institution(s) using the login details from your Confidential Results Information sheet.
You need to select which other institutions receive your results. This can be done at any stage after taking the test, though you may want to wait till results are released if sharing results is optional for that course/institution. It’s a good idea to make your selection(s) as soon as possible after the results are released, to ensure the institutions receive them in good time. Please check the institution website for any information about when they need the results.
The full list of degrees which will accept scores from TMUA can be found when candidates log on to Metritests to check their scores and allocate them to the University.
Please only share results with institutions/courses to which you have already applied or intend to apply via UCAS. Shared results that are not supported by a UCAS application will not be considered by any UK institutions.
Before results are released on 30 November, you can add or remove selected institutions. After this, once your results have been published, you cannot remove an institution or course from the results website – the institution(s) will instantly receive your results – but you can add further institutions.
