Test-takers can use Metritests system to check their results and release them to their chosen institution(s) using the login details from their Confidential Results Information sheet.
Results are not usually sent to institutions automatically. You need to select which institutions receive your results. This can be done after you have taken the test or after the results have been published. It’s a good idea to make your selection(s) as soon as possible after the test, to ensure the institutions receive your results in plenty of time. Please check the institution website for any information about when they need the results.
Results are usually only valid in the year that a candidate is applying to University.
If you do not make your selection using the Metritests system, your test results will not be provided to the institution.
Please note, once your results have been published you cannot remove an institution or course from the results website – the institution(s) will instantly receive your results.
There is no pass/fail for the Test of Mathematics for University Admission – you should simply aim to do the best you can.
Your final scores are based on the number of correct answers you give. There are no penalties for incorrect answers.
Your score on the test will be based on your overall performance on both papers and will be given on a scale of 1.0 to 9.0, with 1.0 being the lowest and 9.0 the highest. You will also be given a score for each of the two papers that make up the test, both on the 1.0 to 9.0 scale, but these two scores are for information only and do not form part of your formal test result.
If candidates think that something might have affected their performance during their test, such as temporary illness, injury or problems with the administration of the test, candidates are able to apply for special consideration.
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing will consider the circumstances and may, at their discretion, advice the institution(s) of the severity of the Special Consideration. The decision to take the Special Consideration into account or not is at the discretion of the institution(s). No adjustment will be made to the candidate's results.
