Online course for the TMUAOnline
We are running an online course to prepare students for the TMUA (Test of Mathematics for University Admission), which is the mathematical admissions test used by Durham University, the University of Warwick and Lancaster University.
Students can gain a reduced offer at Durham University or Lancaster University with a good score in the TMUA. The University of Warwick will also accept a good score in the TMUA as part of its entry requirements. There are two papers with 20 multiple choice questions on each.
This course will consist of seven one-hour online sessions. Students are also welcome to enrol on our similar course for the MAT (Mathematics Admissions Test), but there is no obligation to attend both courses.
The online course for the TMUA will run in September and October, with exact dates to be confirmed nearer the time.
|Integers, Sequences and Series|
|Polynomials and Logarithms|
|Functions and Curve Sketching|
|Coordinate Geometry and Trigonometry|
|Review of misc. multiple choice test questions and exam technique|
Live online sessions will include the discussion of key points and examples from past papers. Course participants will be given access to recordings of the sessions should they not be able to attend a live session. Participants will also be given access to additional online resources including extra notes, exercise sheets and solutions.
- To introduce mathematical problems at the difficulty level of the TMUA.
- To develop students' problem-solving skills so they have confidence in applying for universities that require the TMUA or take it into consideration.
- To provide support for students preparing for the TMUA.
