...The Details

EVERYTHING IN OUR:
ULTIMATE PAT BUNDLE
(TOTAL VALUE: £629)

🥈🥇 Over 800 exclusive online video solutions (including extra practice questions) - Available immediately

Students tell us that when they see a solution, they get it, but that they would have never come up with this solution on their own.

Our 800+ video solutions have been created by our handpicked team of expert tutors. They have been created to express every thought process, so that you can start to think just like an expert and approach problems in the same way. 

This video content and the extra practice questions we provide form the basis of the independent study that our students will do at home.

“Even when I could get an answer to a question myself, I went straight back to the videos to see the tutor's own solution, because I'd almost always learn some trick I could use in the future.”  –Kelly

🥈🥇 2x full days of PAT problem-solving coaching in a group setting (on Zoom) (PAT course 2 of 2) - 17-18 October 2020

Building upon the material we covered in our summer course, these highly interactive sessions will teach you how to think like an examiner and approach PAT questions like a true Oxford student.

Over the last few years, the long Physics questions in the PAT have become harder and harder, almost emulating the style of 1st-year undergraduate Physics. In this course, we will take you through some of the hardest problems, which bring together multiple topics, including some you may not have studied at school yet.

Learning from others is a fantastic tool. This course allows you to re-frame your problem-solving approach. You’ll learn how to interpret questions in the way they are intended to be solved, seeing multiple different approaches and tricks to speed you up. You’ll be able to collaborate on problems with tutors and other students in your classroom.

This course will challenge you to your limits and make sure you are not thrown by any problem that appears in the exam.

Dates: 17th - 18th October 2020

Content:
- Effortlessly manipulate and apply unfamiliar formulae
- Draw together knowledge from the whole of the syllabus and apply it to very challenging problems
- Employ geometry and graph sketching in Physics
- Rehearse explaining your assumptions and evaluating your results
- Dive deeper into the background and significance of familiar material

“The tutors taught Physics topics in a very different style and from a different perspective which you don't necessarily see at school - very useful!” –Rachel

EXCLUSIVE TO THE GOLD ACCELERATOR:
(VALUE: £459)

🥇 1- day Physics & Engineering-specific group interview course - 15th or 22nd November 2020 (usually £459)

Generic interview prep is rarely very useful for scientists and engineers, and it can be hard to find realistic interview practice for these subjects.

This 6-hour course is completely focused on the ins and outs of a physics-based interview. Specifically, you’ll practise answering tough, never-before-seen physics and maths problems and explaining your thinking to the interviewer as you go.

Uniquely, you’ll do your interview in front of the nine other attendees and you’ll have a chance to watch their interviews too, allowing you to work through the questions in real time.

Isn’t that super stressful, I hear you ask?

Basically, yes!

And students who attended this course in the past unanimously told us that the real interviews felt easy in comparison.

“The mock interview was very effective at putting us under pressure: great practice for the real thing!" –Prana

"I found that the tutors were very approachable and good at explaining things clearly. There were also quite a few tutors which meant you could get a lot of one-to-one attention. I also liked how we were encouraged to discuss the problem among ourselves, and afterwards the tutor would go through it, and so we would learn in two different ways.–Tinwai

Case Studies

Meet Grace (now reading Physics at Oxford)

“I applied to Oxford to study mathematics and was unsuccessful primarily  due to being unprepared for the MAT admissions test. However, I was determined to study at Oxford and reapplied for Physics the following year with a new knowledge of the level of preparation required.

Studying with STEPMaths (now The Oxbridge Formula) transformed my ability to perform strongly in the examination and I was consequently offered a place.

I found the worked solutions extremely helpful and clearly explained and I was also impressed by how quickly and effectively tutors addressed my questions.”

Meet Amelie (Engineering at Oxford)

“As an applicant, I was confronted by the daunting Oxbridge application process. Though PAT papers were available online, there were no official mark schemes and unofficial ones were often confusing. 

The Oxbridge Formula’s PAT Programme offered clear step-by-step solution videos for each PAT past paper question and introduced me to new and useful methods to answer PAT-style questions. This allowed me to enter my exam and interview feeling prepared and able to successfully answer more questions than would otherwise have been possible.

I received 4A*s on results day and got into Oxford, to study Engineering Science.”

Meet Anna (Engineering at University College, Oxford)

“Attending the interview course gave me the valuable opportunity to practise answering Physics and Maths questions under conditions closely resembling the real interview. This made the real interview less daunting and stressful! The questions asked were at the right level and it was useful to be exposed to so many interview-style questions in one day.
The 1-1 feedback given was constructive and helped me improve my technique and draw attention to any areas of knowledge which needed reinforcement.
Overall, the programme was a great way to prepare for my application and I would highly recommend it to any Oxbridge applicant!”

Meet Giacomo (Physics & Philosophy at Oxford)

"Having failed to secure an interview when applied the first time, I reapplied in the knowledge that I would have to drastically improve my preparation.

So, I was fortunate to come across your in-person courses. They're clearly designed to tackle the specific challenges of Maths and Physics entrance tests such as speeding up calculations and getting used to applying known physics to unfamiliar situations. And one of the questions we addressed actually appeared in a modified form in the 2019 PAT!

I found the courses challenging, engaging and particularly fruitful for honing essential skills for the entrance test through clear explanations and multiple example questions.

These courses proved invaluable for my application, as applying the skills I’d developed through the courses helped me succeed in the PAT and ultimately secure a place at Balliol."

Meet Bartol (Engineering at Oxford)

"I applied to the Oxbridge Formula with limited knowledge about the PAT and how to approach applying to Oxford and left with that and so much more. Video solutions to past papers balanced with exercises to test and stretch a student’s knowledge are unique ways in which the Oxbridge Formula prepares its students for such a daunting process.

The PAT is especially notorious for hiding Year 13 Maths and Physics in its syllabus and the Oxbridge Formula covers all of these challenging topics in a concise and easy-to-follow format.

Having gained a place to study Engineering Science at Oxford, I will forever know that using programme provided by the Oxbridge Formula made all the difference in building my confidence in the PAT as well as in my success overall."

Meet Mikey (Physics at Oxford)

"I particularly appreciated the opportunity to do a realistic subject-focused mock interview that I wouldn't have got to do at school otherwise. I received a realistic amount of help from the interviewer and then got lots of useful feedback that I could act on in preparation for the real thing.

It was also really useful getting such a wide variety of supplied questions and seeing the range of ways the other students reacted and answered.

I'm now studying at Oxford, so thank you for all your help!"

Meet Finn (Physics at Oxford)

"The PAT programme taught me how to solve problems in a step-by-step manner, and with this I was able to tackle questions that touched on new topics or went beyond the A Level.

We were also exposed to time-saving shortcuts, especially in complicated-looking circuit questions.

I found this imperative, not only in the PAT, but also my interviews, where it helped me present a clear thought process in the way interviewers are looking for.

 I consider this programme necessary to get an edge in the competitive applicant pool."

Testimonials

"I would definitely recommend this programme to anyone who is considering studying Physics at university. The pace is slow enough for you to follow and fast enough that a lot of content is covered.

The tutors can see if you are struggling and need some extra help, which they are more than happy to give."

–Max
"I loved the format of the lessons, doing the discussion in pairs and then going through it all together.

I also found it really easy to follow the teaching on topics which I hadn't done any work on before (circular motion for example). 

I now feel much more confident going into the PAT."

–Jonathan
"Lots of useful questions! Good student to teacher ratio and everyone had the opportunity to contribute a solution and attempt the question for ourselves.

I feel more confident for the PAT and my interview."

–Emily
"The course was a real eye opener to the difficulty of the PAT. Group work helped us exchange knowledge and get the correct answers. The tutor explained the questions and topics covered nicely."

–Nehaal
"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It consolidated my physics knowledge along with making me tackle different unknown questions.

Difficult concepts in kinematics and dynamics were clearly explained, and I learned new formulae for orbits and circular motion that I had never seen before."

–Prannay
"I was able to quickly learn new material required for the PAT and could apply that knowledge by doing several practice questions.

The teachers were excellent at providing explanations for some ideas that were harder to grasp."

–Alice
"I enjoyed playing pictionary as an icebreaker with the tutors! But I also learned loads about orbits and capacitors, which were new topics for me.

All topics not already covered by the A-level curriculum were clearly explained in a methodical manner. And most topics went into greater detail than A-level."

–Shane
"I found that the course was a really effective way to develop the level of understanding required for the PAT.

I found all the topics supplemented my A-level learning without losing me, creating a perfect teaching environment.

The course was led by highly competent teachers who made sure no student was left without a clear understanding. There were enough staff to make sure everyone that asked for help got it. Overall, super good!"

–Jamie
"The tutor was very knowledgeable, explaining difficult content in a way that made it more understandable. The size of the group also allowed for group work, without limiting any 1-1 opportunities. The topics covered were very useful if you're taking the PAT. "

–Chirag
"Going on this course has helped me to understand some topics on orbits and circuits that I'd never covered before at school but which were on the PAT."
