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 2022 MAT livestream is live every Thursday at 17:00–19:00 (UK time) until the start of November 2022.
Each week is themed around a particular set of topics, with a worksheet of questions available in advance. After the MAT, there are additional bonus livestreams on unrelated mathematics, on this year's test, and on Oxford Maths interview questions.
Here's what people say;
"really useful, thank you!!!" - Anonymous attendee
"Without these videos, I have no idea on what I would have done." - Anonymous attendee
A recent survey of first-year Oxford Maths students found that more than a third of them engaged with the Oxford MAT Livestream while applying.

By popular request, the spaced-out versions of the worksheets that I use during the live show. Please think twice before printing them, it would be a lot of paper.
If you want even more MAT livestream content, you can find an archive of the MAT livestream from 2020 or 2021 at the bottom of this page.
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.
