Timeline of Imperial & Oxford MAT Paper Preparation Courses offered throughout the year

The Oxbridge Formula has the most comprehensive set of Oxford MAT Courses on offer to give you the most support on this journey to sitting the hardest Maths exams you’ll have sat to date! Each course builds on the previous.

What makes our MAT Courses special?

In contrast to other courses out there, our MAT Summer School gives you three straight days of intensive Maths preparation. Rather than relying on past MAT papers alone, we have scoured a wealth of resources for relevant questions so that you can prepare adequately and still have the ability to take full past papers as mocks.

This 3-day summer school is just one of four MAT preparation courses that we run across the year. On top of which, you will find a comprehensive resource in our online subscription area which contains video solutions to anything you can think of regarding MAT!

Imperial / Oxford MAT Course FAQ

Have we updated our MAT courses to the new MAT syllabus?

Yes, we have.

The MAT syllabus has been updated for 2018 onwards. See more information at this link.

In our Extended October MAT Course, we will devote some time to practising topics that have been added in the new syllabus. These topics include differentiation from first principles and the graphs of log functions with arbitrary bases.

Are our MAT courses suitable for Computer Science applicants to Oxford?

Yes, most definitely.

Given that Computer Science applicants have to answer some Maths questions in the MAT (Q1-5) as well as Logic & Algorithm Questions (Q6 & 7), we have designed our MAT course in such a way that Computer Science applicants have some special sessions within the course, which focus on Q6 & 7.

The remainder of the course covers common Maths material; Computer Science applicants are expected to be very fluent with Mathematics, which will be tested not only in the MAT, but at interview too.

Read what our students have said about our Imperial / Oxford MAT preparation courses and resources

We always started each question or topic by addressing the basic things we needed to know. This really helped my understanding and I learnt a lot of new things that I had not previously known.

Kauser M

The STEP questions in the MAT Extended course made the MAT seem less frightening and I learnt some new methods that are more advanced (e.g. Trig addition formulas etc.) that may help to make mat questions easier.

April W

I found going through the functions questions very useful as I had not seen anything similar before. The teaching style works well because there is a lot of interaction between the staff and pupils.

Emma B

Great teaching, good variety of questions. Very helpful teachers and assistants.
