Date of Test: In 2013, the test is set for the morning of Wednesday 6 November.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION about the Physics Aptitude Test -

The Department of Physics is working in partnership with Admissions
Test Services to administer the above admissions test.

The most important change is in the candidate registration process for the test.

Candidates need to be entered for the Physics Aptitude Test (PAT) by 15 October 2013 via Admissions Test Services’ secure Entries Extranet.

You need Oxford Physics Entrance Exam question Paper, here I am giving;

A rock sample contains two radioactive elements A and B, with half lives
of 8000 and 16000 years respectively. If the relative proportion of A:B is
initially 1:1, what is their relative proportion after 16000 years?
A 2:1 B 1:2
C 3:1 D 1:3

Two resistors R1 and R2 are connected in series with a potential di
V across them. The power dissipated by the resistor R1 is:
A V 2R1=(R1 + R2)2 B V 2R2
2=(R1(R1 + R2)2)
C V 2R1 (R1 + R2)2 D V 2R2
2 (R1(R1 + R2)2)

A block of concrete, of mass 100 kg, lies on a 2 m-long plank of wood at a
distance 0.5m from one end. If a builder lifts up the other end of the plank,
how much force must he apply to lift the block?
A 125N B 12.5N
C 250N D 25N

A plane ies in a direction NW (according to the plane's internal compass) at
an airspeed of 141 km/hr. If the wind at the plane's cruise altitude is blowing
with a speed of 100km/hr directly from the north, what is the plane's actual
speed and direction relative to the ground?
A 141 km/hr, SW B 100 km/hr, W
C 141 km/hr, S D 223 km/hr, NNW

Two mirrors are set at right angles to each other. A beam of light, which is
perpendicular to the line of intersection of the two mirrors is incident on the

rst mirror M1 at an angle A with respect to its normal. The light re ected
by M1 is then re ected by M2. What is the angle through which the resultant
beam is turned with respect to the incident beam direction?
A Greater than 180
B Exactly 180

C Less than 180
D It depends on the wavelength
