The Thinking Skills Assessment (TSA) is an admission test for an increasing number of courses at an increasing number of universities, including Oxford and Cambridge. The emphasis of the TSA is very much on thinking skills, and the amount of knowledge required is minimal. This means that the best way to prepare is to develop your thinking skills by working through a large number of TSA-style questions. You should look upon the TSA not only as a means to stand out from your competition, but also as an opportunity to hone your thinking skills, which are going to be far more important to your future impact and wellbeing than any facts that you could ever learn. As BF Skinner once put it, Education is what survives when what has been learnt has been forgotten. This book, written by an Oxford tutor and writer, covers all aspects of the TSA, including problem-solving, critical thinking, and the writing task. The bulk of the book consists of three full-length mock papers, each followed by fully explained answers to the questions asked.
