Special Feature TSA – That Oxford Girl

This week I’m interviewing a student from Oxford University about the entrance exam for Economics and Management. Hello William, so first of all what exactly is the TSA? The TSA stands for Thinking Skills Assessment, an entrance exam for a range of subjects, including Economics and Management. What does the TSA consist of? There are two parts to the TSA. Are you meant to prepare for the TSA? The exams are not based on prior subject knowledge so are intended to see how you think, putting everyone on a level-footing. So is there anything you can do to prepare? Looking at past papers will help you to see how the exam is structured and the sorts of questions which come up.

How much preparation did you do? Pretty much all of the above but at at the end of the day it isn’t intended to be an exam you can’t really revise for, so don’t stress out too much! Economics and Management Interview – That Oxford Girl. Follow: thatoxfordgirl on Instagram!

Mathematics for the modern economy

To maintain their position and economic benefit, such industries must strive to be advanced, inventive and creative. The same argument also applies to more conventional sectors, such as agriculture, utilities and manufacturing. In all cases, there is a clear need for problems to be defined in a sensible mathematical way and solved to yield the best economic and social outcomes using appropriate, often innovative, mathematical techniques. Industrial mathematics is currently responding to the uncertain data-rich world which industry now confronts. Home.
