Hi everyone!

Just checking in ahead of the Admissions Tests. I know things are a little different this year with Covid-19, but I wanted tell you not to worry, we've got you! I've put together all the info, advice and resources you'll need to get going in one place. See below!

And if you still have questions, you can always email me at outreach@lmh.ox.ac.uk.

Good luck, I'm rooting for you :)

Information, Past Papers and Mark Schemes

Why not have a go at some past papers? Statistically the more of these that you practice under timed conditions, the better that you are likely to do in the real thing. Don't be hard on yourself if you're not getting the marks you'd like to be getting or are maybe used to getting in school - the tests are supposed to challenge you and test skills you're not learning in A-levels, so where 90-100% might usually be a strong mark, in this context 60-70% could absolutely be a competitive score!

LMH Webinar

I recorded this webinar to give you a comprehensive overview of how you might go about making a competitive application...it features an Admissions Test section which gives a basic intro about the tests and how you can get started.
