TSA Course Structure
As an introduction to the day, you will learn how your test is used in the admissions process. The introduction will guide you in the way that you need to start thinking in order to maximise your chances of success in the test. The day is then split into three sections, as set out below.
Included in the cost of the day are all four of our unique mock TSA papers, written by our test experts. Two will be marked and returned to you.
You are taught how to identify the types of questions within this section of the test and the techniques needed to answer them, ensuring you can respond to problem-solving questions logically and effectively, even under pressure.
Our consultant shows you how to identify arguments and logical gaps as well as giving you techniques for approaching longer questions. This session will teach you how to speed up your approach to multiple choice questions, without losing accuracy.
You will be sent a TSA Cambridge mock paper to sit before the day. As part of the course, you’ll also sit a practice paper, to time and in exam conditions. Both papers will be marked and returned to you within 10 days of the Seminar.
Meet your seminar-leader, Resham
Aside from being one of our star bloggers, Resham is our in-house expert in the TSA Cambridge. She read Economics at the University of Cambridge and, after graduating in 2010, went on to work at the Financial Services Authority where she focussed on financial risk caused by the economic outlook. Resham was fascinated by the impact of political changes upon the economy and financial sector and so left to work in Parliament. She currently works as an Economic Advisor to an MP (who sits on the Treasury Select Committee) which means she get lots of exposure to current policy and economic decisions. She’s also on the Candidates’ List for one of the major political parties and hopes to fight a seat in the 2015 General Election.
Resham also works individually with our Premier and Scholarship Clients on their Admissions Test Preparation.
Our Cambridge Thinking Skills Assessment Seminar
If you are applying to Cambridge, you may well find that you will have to sit the Thinking Skills Assessment, or ‘TSA’. This 90-minute test consists of 50 multiple choice questions, half of which are designed to test your critical thinking skills and the other half of which are focused on problem-solving.
We have designed a day-long course alongside our TSA experts, who also help to write our original mock papers, to help you prepare. The seminar is designed to build up your confidence and improve your technique by helping you to develop your critical thinking and problem-solving skills to ensure you can handle difficult questions across the two sections of the test.
The day was informative, professional and helpful.
