TSA Course Structure
1015- 1030: Registration
1030- 1300: Problem Solving
1300- 1330: Lunch
1330 – 1600: Critical Thinking
1600 – 1700: Writing Task

The vast majority of MCQs are either problem solving, data handling or critical thinking. Whilst this section is renowned for being difficult to prepare for, we’ll teach you common shortcuts and techniques you can use to save valuable time on these type of questions. We go over common types of question that tend to come up every year and show you how to get to the correct answer quickly and efficiently.
You have just under 2 minutes per question so most students are usually able to finish the majority of questions in time. However, some questions are very tricky and can be a big drain on your limited time. This is usually why people don’t finish and therefore perform as well as they could in this section. Therefore, you are taught to identify which questions are going to be easy and quick to do. This allows you to score easy marks and not spend time on the difficult ones until the end.
TSA Oxford Only: The Essay is frequently neglected by lots of students, who choose to spend their time revising for the MCQs instead. However, it has a higher return per hour of work than Section 1 so is well worth putting time into. Whilst different questions will inevitably demand differing levels of comprehension and knowledge, it is important to realise that one of the major skills being tested is actually your ability to construct a logical and coherent argument- and to convey it to the lay-reader.
We will teach you crucial strategies and provide a framework that you can use to answer any essay that turns up in the exam. You’ll also see examples of good and bad essays- including introductions and conclusions so you can start to appreciate what the admissions tutors are looking for. If you’d like more help- we’ll be more than happy to help via email.
The final part of the course consolidates the main techniques and strategies taught throughout the day. Although the course is scheduled to end at 1730, your tutor will be around till 1800 (or later if need be) in order to answer any questions that you have. Please arrange your transport back home with this in mind.
