Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
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.
