Practice papers

Written by our expert consultants, our practice papers replicate the style, format and timing of the real examinations, giving students the chance to practise their approach to the test as well as the skills required. Each practice paper includes a set of model answers with detailed commentary on how to crack individual questions.

Our practice papers are different to those provided at our one-day Admissions Test Seminars, giving applicants further opportunities to prepare in their own home and well in advance of the real examinations.
