### Preparing for the Test of Mathematics for University Admission

The focus of the Test of Mathematics for University Admission is on mathematical *thinking.*

It uses mathematics you will have already learned in your school studies, so there is no need to take a preparation course or to do much preparation beyond familiarising yourself with the test format and style of questions. We recommend that you read the test specification and notes on Logic and Proof and answer the question papers below under timed test conditions.

For test-takers who are required to take the Cambridge Test of Mathematics for University Admission (CTMUA), you can use the preparation materials provided for the Test of Mathematics for University Admission. Both tests have the same format, however for those applying to the University of Cambridge, please refer to the University of Cambridge pre-interview assessments webpage for details about test dates, costs and how to register.
