The below links are useful to prepare for the Oxford PAT. Preparation is key: the more you can revise and prepare, the better your result will be. We strongly recommend you attempt all of the available Oxford PAT past papers

Oxford PAT: use this link for general information from Oxford University about the Oxford PAT, e.g. re-introducing multiple choice questions and use of calculators. Oxford University's Preparation Guide for the PAT is excellent, and please check any updates of the PAT Syllabus.

Isaac Physics: this website contains lots of maths and physics problem solving questions.

British Physics Olympiad: this website contains lots of past papers and solutions of problem solving type questions. Use the Question Bank and find topics on AS and A2 challenge questions, and solutions can also be found on the website.

Next time: this website contains some quite fun questions designed to make you think about physical concepts.

I want to study Engineering: this website is just as useful for all applicants not just those applying to engineering. Look at the 'mathematics and physics questions at the level of university engineering admissions interviews' for preparation for the PAT or university interview practice.
