The Economics Admissions Assessment (ECAA) is a 2-hour written exam, for students applying to Economics at Cambridge.
The test is sat on 31st October 2018 and you must register separately from your UCAS application. The deadline for application to the ECAA is 15th October 2018. Your assessment centre must register you for the exam, you cannot enter yourself. The best way to do this is to speak with your school’s exam officer to make sure your entry is submitted.
The ECAA consists of 2 sections.
Section 1A contains 20 multiple choice questions focussed on applicant problem solving ability, section 1B contains a further 15 multiple choice questions focussed on advanced mathematics. In total, section 1 lasts 80 minutes. Section 2 consists of a writing task, with students having to select one essay to write in the remaining 40 minutes of the test.
Whilst the performance of students in the ECAA is not necessarily essential for gaining an interview, the score can be critical in Cambridge’s final decision on an applicant.
At UniAdmissions, we work with applicants to make sure they achieve the best possible score in this critical admissions test. All of our students work with an expert Oxbridge tutor, who scored in the top 10% nationally when they took the test. They will also know first-hand what skills are required to excel at Cambridge, and thus what the tutors are looking for in applicants.
Our 50-hour Premium Oxbridge Package includes 24-hours of tailored, 1-to-1 tuition which is designed to pinpoint any weaknesses you might have in the exam and then work to turn them into strengths. We also work hard on areas were average students normally score poorly, helping to differentiate you from other applications. Within our 50-hour package, our expert tutors will also help you through all aspects of the application, from personal statement structure and college choice to interview topics and technique. We round off tuition with 4 x 1-hour mock interviews, with different topics being covered by our expert and experienced tutors. You will then receive full written feedback for you to work through with your primary interview tutor.
Alongside all this, we will send you our award-winning resources to assist with your tuition. This includes 5 paperback books, eBooks and 10 hours of online lectures, these resources contain 400 questions with fully worked solutions.
