Are you thinking of applying to study Mathematics at university? We're running a weekly livestream talking about maths problems and discussing problem-solving strategies, with a focus on Oxford's Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT). The sessions are free and available for everyone, and are recorded so that you can watch them later even if you can't join us live. No registration needed.
The 2023 MAT livestream is live every Thursday at 17:00–19:00 (UK time) from June to October 2023.
Note: no stream on 28 September due to strike action.
A recent survey of first-year Oxford Maths students found that more than half of them had engaged with the Oxford MAT Livestream while applying!

Looking for a PAT livestream?
If you're thinking of applying for Physics, Physics & Philosophy, or Engineering, or Material Science at Oxford, then you'll be expected to take the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT) rather than the MAT.
There's a programme of live PAT support on the Physics website here.
Looking for CS interview questions?
If you're thinking of applying for Computer Science, you might like the interview questions discussed on Prof. Varun Kanade's blog here.
