HAT Past Papers

HAT past papers are an incredibly valuable, and finite, resource when it comes to your HAT preparation. Using past papers, you can be certain of the difficulty of the passage unlike if you used a practice question. This will also give you a level of familiarity with your upcoming exam, along with a feel for the timings.

How to pass the HAT

Your HAT score is a hugely important factor used by Admissions Tutors in order for them to select who is invited to interview, or ultimately offered a place to study History at Oxford. With under 25% of applicants being offered a place, it’s vital to do well on the HAT to improve your chances of success.

At UniAdmissions, we offer comprehensive support Programmes focused on getting you a place to study History at Oxford.

Frequently Asked Questions

We work with a limited number of students each year to ensure we can provide the best support suited for their particular needs.

Our Programmes have a structured syllabus, however, we tweak elements of the syllabus so the student is able to gain the most out of our support.

As we work with a limited number of students, we have a limited number of places available for enrolment on each Programme.

The best way to find out whether there are still places available is by booking a free consultation here or contacting us via Livechat, where our expert Admissions Consultants will be able to advise you further.

We do have ideal start times at points throughout the year, however, the syllabus can be adapted to suit your particular start time if you are accepted onto the Programme. Our Admissions Consultants can help you understand the Programme timeline in your specific case – all you need to do is ask.

First and foremost, we assess whether the potential student has the right academic capabilities and profile to be realistically accepted to study at Oxford or Cambridge.

Secondly, we assess whether the student is capable and willing to put in the time required to create a strong application for Oxbridge.

Finally, we assess the student’s attitude and reasoning behind applying to Oxford or Cambridge. This is one of our most important considerations.

If a student has below-average (but still realistic) grades for Oxford and Cambridge, but the correct attitude, we would consider accepting them onto our Programme. Unfortunately, if the converse is that case, it’s unlikely the student would be accepted onto the Programme.

UniAdmissions is committed to giving the very best service to every student. Our talented tutors are the key to the excellent service we pride ourselves on, passing on not only their expertise, but also their enthusiasm to inspire the next generation to succeed.

All tutors are either current senior students, recent graduates or from a professional background. Our selection process ensures only the best tutors work for us, in roles most suited to their skill-sets.

You’ll get access to all of our online resources and paperback books relevant to your admissions test all packed with powerful strategies and techniques to help you prepare, improve and boost your score.

In person tuition is usually held in a location that’s convenient for you and your tutor in Central London, Cambridge or Oxford.

In some cases, it may be possible to have the sessions at your house depending on your location.

Absolutely, and we’d encourage you to do so.
Make sure you give your tutor enough notice (at least 5 days) for them to prepare the appropriate materials.

The Programme Portal is where you will find all of the support and resources for your Programme.

You can think of the Portal as the hub of all the materials included within your Programme. If you are ever looking for a relevant book, an online course, course dates or anything along those lines, the Portal is very likely to be your answer.

You can also use the Portal to get in touch with our team at any point.
