The aim of this website is to help you compete for engineering places at top universities. We provide challenging problems that are similar in style to some interview questions. We also offer lots of help to enable you to solve these problems.

To get started using the site, just click on “Let the system pick a problem for you” and watch just enough of the hint videos to enable you to solve the problem. Then try another problem. The more problems you solve, the better you will get at problem solving. It is more important to solve lots of different problems than to worry about the topic area in which a particular problem is based. The hint videos will teach you the material required if you don't know it already.

Choose the problem to study from a list of topics and titles.
The system will try to pick a problem for you based on your past activity.
If you login you can use the “Confused” button to get help if any of the videos are hard to follow.

You will get the most out of this site if you understand what it does, and does not, aim to provide. The focus is on combining fundamental concepts to solve problems. The site is not designed specifically as a revision tool for any particular public examination. So, for example, we don't necessarily give all the answers in the numerical form that would earn you the most marks in a UK A-level exam. Above all, don't expect the problems from this site to come up in your interview. Learn how to solve problems in general rather than try to memorise individual examples.

Please email info@i-want-to-study-engineering.org if you get stuck on a problem and the hints don't seem to help. This email address is also good for general feedback and comments on the resources we offer. The links below offer practical advice to help you prepare for university admissions.
