RELC Examinations Bureau (RELC EB) has been appointed by Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing to administer Test of Mathematics for University Admission for candidates currently attending or have graduated from a school/college/polytechnic in Singapore.

 

If you are applying to study Mathematics courses at Durham University Lancaster University, the University of Warwick, the University of Sheffield or the University of Southampton, you are encouraged to take Test of Mathematics for University Admission as part of your application. You will also be able to share your results with the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) if you're applying to study Mathematics and Economics or Mathematics with Economics.

 

 

IMPORTANT NOTE:

 

  • Universities and Colleges Admissions Service application (UCAS) is required for candidates wishing to apply to Durham University, Lancaster University, the University of Warwick, the University of Sheffield or the University of Southampton for 2020 entry.
     
  • Candidates must submit UCAS application prior to registering for Test of Mathematics for University Admission, as the UCAS Personal ID is used in matching candidates to their Universities application.
     
  • For the 04 and 05 November tests, they are going to be held in de-centralised locations at multiple venues. Therefore, it is not possible to accommodate candidates registering for two tests that fall on the same day.
     
  • Candidates do have the option to register for one test on each of the two days (i.e. one paper on 04 November and another paper on 05 November).
     
  • Cambridge Assessment has advised that the timings and the test dates for the BMAT and Other Admission Tests have been set globally, so it is with regret that RELC is unable to change the timings nor dates for these tests.
     
  • For TMUA, the computer-based test will be delivered using Mercer Mettl's platform, which is a browser-based system. There is no need to download specific software to access the tests. The format of this test will not change. The test will be delivered at the test venue (subject to the availability of the computers*). In addition, the test will be monitored using Mercer Mettl's internal systems to ensure the security and integrity of the test.
     
  • Candidates will be able to familiarise themselves with the test platform in advance, but as the test format itself remains the same, Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing will not publish any additional practice tests.
     
  • Candidates will receive an email about the practice test from Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing closer to the actual test.
