See below for information how TMUA, MAT, and the STEP are evaluated:

Applicants taking the TMUA

Applicants will be sent a link to a web form to give permission for us to access their TMUA results around November time. They are then given 5 days to respond.

  • Applicants who perform well in the TMUA (achieve a score of 6.5 or above) and are made an offer, will receive a reduced offer.
     
  • A score between 5.5 and 6.5 is still considered a good score however, if an offer is made, it would not be reduced.
     
  • A score below 5.5 is weaker but that does not mean an automatic rejection. Their score would be taken into consideration alongside the rest of the application.

  • Applicants who achieve 60% or above in the MAT are eligible for a reduced offer, if an offer is made.
  • A score between 45% and 60% is still considered a good score however, if an offer is made, it would not be reduced.
     
  • Anything below 45% is weaker but does not mean automatic rejection. Their score would be taken into account alongside the rest of the application.
