No calculators or dictionaries are allowed.
There is no pass or fail for TMUA. You should aim to do the best you can.
Your final scores are based on the number of correct answers you give. There is no negative marking – marks are not lost for wrong answers, so it’s worth making a guess.
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.
The full list of degrees which will take the scores for the TMUA into account can be found when candidates log on to Metritests to check their scores and allocate them to the University.
