Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
You are here:
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.
Results from the TMUA 2021 session will be released on 29 November 2021.
You can check your TMUA results by logging into our Metritests system. Use the login details from your Confidential Results Information sheet, which you will be given on the day of the test.
Your results are not sent to universities automatically. You need to select which universities you want to receive your results using our Metritests system. This can be done at any stage after purchasing the test, though you may want to wait till results are released if sharing results is optional for that course/university. It’s a good idea to make your selection(s) as soon as possible after the results are released, to ensure the universities receive them in good time. Please check the university website for any information about when they need the results.
How to release your results to universities
Follow three easy steps:
What if I don’t use the Metritests system?
If you do not make your selection using the Metritests system, your test results will not be provided to the university.
Can I add and remove universities once the results are released?
Before results are released on 29 November, you can add or remove selected universities. After this, once your results have been published, you cannot remove a university or course from the results website – the universities will instantly receive your results – but you can add further universities.
Can I send my results to universities I have not applied to?
Please only share results with universities/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 universities.
Your TMUA score will be used in different ways by universities as part of their admissions process. Most use your TMUA results alongside all aspects of your application. Others may use the results as a way to filter out candidates who did not achieve a certain score.
To find out how universities use TMUA results, visit the relevant department’s website or speak to them directly.

If an university/course is not listed then it’s not registered as using the test as part of its admissions process. Results cannot be released to unregistered institutions. Please contact the institution and if they wish to receive results, ask them to contact our Customer Support Team to become registered.
You need to inform the test centre that you have lost your login details. The test centre will contact us and a number of security checks will take place before your login details are reissued.
Alternatively, the test centre can provide you with your results. However it cannot release them to the institution for you.
Yes, you can submit a Results Enquiry up to five working days after the results are released.
If a candidate thinks a Malpractice case or a Results Enquiry outcome was incorrectly handled, they can submit an Appeal.

If there is a change to your results before you share them with your chosen universities, this will be reflected in the results as they appear on Metritests. If your results change after you have shared them with the universities, you will need to tell the universities that your results have changed as they may have already seen your original result. You may want to inform the university in advance that you have made a Results Enquiry or Appeal if your results have already been passed to them.
