A 1-day STEPMaths Preparation Course for students sitting MAT or similar exams for entry to Oxford, Durham, Warwick, Imperial College. Takes place in October.
Following up our popular course on the rapid-fire short maths questions from MAT papers, we present a similar course targeted at the longer questions in the MAT.
We know at this point in your preparation, you will probably have tackled the majority of the past papers, so this course will cover original questions that we have made up. We will cover a few, extra-long questions in detail, really getting to the heart of the Mathematics contained within them.
In MAT in particular, the long questions are unlike anything you will see at A-level and will require practice at logical reasoning, understanding abstract definitions, and writing clear and incisive proofs. These are all skills highly prized by universities and should prove useful beyond these entrance exams, including at interview and in preparing for your career as an undergraduate.
Working with partners, you will learn by practice how to approach abstract questions and present your thinking in a way that others can understand, while our tutors will present model solutions detailing how the examiners hope for their best candidates to think and write.
Sketch and analyse bizarre new functions, or construct them yourself
- Handle polynomials of any order
Master intricate rule-following questions
Learn to adjust every parameter and anticipate the consequences

“For anyone that is interesting in taking the MAT, this is the most helpful form of revision for it I have experienced.”
