Combines our in-person Maths Summer School and MAT Short Questions Course with access to all the online MAT resources from our Platinum MAT Online Bundle for 8 months!
We’ve designed our MAT summer courses to lead you through all the most essential topics and really hone your problem-solving skills, which will be the backbone of your MAT performance. In our workshop-style setting, our friendly experts will always be on hand to answer your individual questions, and you can collaborate with your fellow Maths/CS applicants. The key benefit is that you’ll be developing skills that are either universally useful or are relevant to topics that come up every year. Your speed, accuracy, and confidence in MAT questions will all be turbocharged, so you’ll have the foundation you need to work on the specifics in the following months.
But what should that follow-up work look like? In our experience, merely doing past paper questions is only 50% effective. To maximise your performance, you also need to pick up on subtleties that the written solutions gloss over, see a variety of approaches to expand your problem-solving toolbox, and extract methods for starting a question alone, not just following a solution. In our online video resources, our experienced Oxbridge tutors distil the essence of a 1-1 tutorial into an online package to help you develop these skills, as well as thoroughly but efficiently explaining the solution to every question. Plus, we’ve included 350+ additional practice questions, each with its own further video solution.
