What does The Oxbridge Formula provide to help you with TMUA?

Timeline of Durham / Warwick / Cambridge TMUA Preparation Courses offered throughout the year

Our courses aim to increase both your problem-solving ability and your familiarity with the TMUA short question format.

What makes our TMUA Courses special?

Maths is our specialism. So, when we help you prepare for an exam like the TMUA, we don’t focus solely on past TMUA questions, which are limited in number. Instead, our courses further aim to help you significantly advance your overall problem-solving skills, with the result that you will find the TMUA paper a breeze.

That being said, our 1-day TMUA Paper 1 Course will also give you excellent preparation specific to the style of questions that you will see on your paper. Meanwhile, our TMUA Paper 2 Course will help you to tackle the most unique aspect of the TMUA – the proof and logic questions in Paper 2.

Is the TMUA now being used for Computer Science at Cambridge?

Yes, the TMUA is being used by Cambridge for 2020 Computer Science entry. It is replacing the CSAT in this role.

Is the TMUA still being used for Maths entry at other universities?

Yes, it is still being used by Durham, Warwick, Sheffield, Lancaster, Southampton, LSE, Nottingham, and Cardiff as a way for Maths applicants to qualify for reduced offers.

Read what our students have said about our TMUA 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

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.
