In 2021, TMUA will be a computer-based test. You should confirm with your school or test centre whether they will provide the computer or whether you need to bring your own.
Details have been updated in these web pages.
Once you’ve registered for the Test of Mathematics for University Admission (TMUA), your test centre will be able to advise on specific details about the test day. For general tips and advice, see below:
Before the day of your test, check the start time of your test and the specific location.
Find out how long it takes to travel to your test centre and make sure you arrive before the scheduled start time (your test centre can advise).
You must bring valid photographic identification to the test (passport, driving licence or provisional driving licence, or student ID).
Make sure you bring the equipment you need.
Dictionaries (including bilingual dictionaries) and calculators are not allowed.
Do not bring food or drink into the test room (apart from a clear bottle of water with any labels removed).
Please confirm whether your school or test centre will provide a computer or whether you need to provide your own. You may also bring a pen or pencil for rough work (the centre will provide paper for this).
Your test centre may give further instructions about what to bring or do on the test day.
Turn off your mobile phone and any other electronic devices. You will not be able to bring these to your desk.
Your test centre will advise where to put your personal belongings.
You will receive your Statement of Entry, which includes your candidate entry number. You will need to write this on your test answer sheet.
Each section of the test is completed one after the other. You will be told when you can start each paper, based on the time given (Paper 1: 75 minutes, Paper 2: 75 minutes). You cannot use the time from one section for another.
Listen to the invigilator at the test centre and follow their instructions. If you have any questions, need help or want to leave the room, raise your hand and an invigilator will come to your assistance.
Do not talk to other test-takers.

Stay in your seat until you are told that you may leave the room.
Do not take any question papers, answer sheets or rough paper out of the room.
