Modules 2 and 3

Module 2 - Reasoning in the Humanities and Social Sciences (1 hour).

Module 3 - Reasoning in the Sciences, Mathematics and Social Sciences (1 hour).

These modules of MSAP-UK are in multiple-choice format. You will mark your answers by filling in circles on a machine-readable Answer Sheet. It is very important that you record your answers carefully. Record your answers by completely filling in the circle with pencil. If you decide to change an answer, erase it completely and mark the circle corresponding to your new choice.

Use only a B, 2B or HB pencil, and have a good quality eraser.

Use the free Sample Questions on this website to practise your exam technique and/or the MSAP Practice Test (available for purchase). Make some quiet time when you are unlikely to be distracted. Try to attempt all questions before checking your answers. Other good preparation is to read widely and think critically about what you need.

There are 35 questions in each Module in multiple-choice format with 4 responses, from which the candidate is asked to choose the most appropriate response. There is only one correct response.

In Module 2, the questions focus on interpretation and understanding of ideas in language. Some questions will ask candidates to identify the main idea in a passage, or interpret specific words and phrases. Inferences or deduced meanings may be required. In some questions the emphasis is placed on analyzing and understanding the stimulus material, and in others the candidates will have to manipulate information and solve problems.

In Module 3, the questions focus on comprehension, application, decision making and solving scientific and mathematical information. Some questions will require candidates to interpret figures, identify connections, relationships and patterns. Other questions will require basic calculation, estimation and application of equations. Some questions will require deduction, extrapolations and using evidence, and others involve problem solving.
