Online Support for MAT & TMUA



This is an online course to support students from the East Midlands who are preparing for the MAT or TMUA which are used by Oxford and Imperial Universities (MAT) and Durham, Lancaster and Warwick (TMUA). The course will consist of 7 one-hour online sessions.

It should be noted that there are specific courses for each of the MAT and TMUA tests - this course is intended as an alternative for anyone who is unable to take part in one of these for any reason. It should also be possible to take part in this course alongside the longer course for students preparing for the STEP paper.

We will focus strongly on the content which is common to both tests with later sessions on test-specific aspects depending upon the needs of the participants.

Places on the course are limited, and priority will be given to students from state-sector schools. 

The online platform we use is called Big Blue Button. Students can access the platform on laptops, tablets or phones, but they will get more out of the course if they can access a microphone and write on a touchscreen.

Integers Sequences and Series

Polynomials and logarithms

Curve Sketching

Co-ordinate Geometry & Trigonometry

Proof and Logic

Review of questions and technique


  • To introduce mathematical problems at the appropriate level
  • To develop students' problem solving skills so that they have confidence in applying to universities requiring these entrance tests.
  • To provide support for students preparing for these tests

Who will benefit from attending?

Students who are intending to sit the MAT or TMUA.

It should be noted that priority will be given to students from state schools in the East Midlands region if the course is over subscribed.

Materials and Equipment

All that is needed to to participate is a computer with a good internet connection. However the use of a microphone can be very helpful, also some form of input device  to enable writing online might be very helpful but is not required
