Most Popular Questions 

Can I apply to the UNIQ Spring and Summer School?

The deadline is 11pm, 27 January 2020. Please see www.uniq.ox.ac.uk.

What do I need to know about interviews? 

Please read our advice on preparing for interviews.

When will I hear about my Admissions Test results? 

Further information about how to access BMAT, TSA, ELAT and LNAT results can be found on Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing’s website or on the test webpage

Although tutors will use any test results to help inform their shortlisting decisions, candidates who sat the CAT, MLAT, OLAT, PAT, HAT and MAT do not routinely receive their results. After all decisions have been made in mid-January, results can be requested as part of our feedback process.

Can I visit Oxford University?

We have another University-wide open day on 20 September. If you cannot attend then and wish to come over the summer, you are welcome to make an independent visit. Other opportunities to attend events and find out more about studying at Oxford are listed in our events calendar.

What subjects should I take to A-level (or equivalent) and what grades do I need?

The exact subject requirements vary depending on the course you want to apply for. As a guide, you will need to achieve between AAA and A*A*A at A-level or an equivalent level qualification. Read our course pages to find out the specific requirements for each. Any specific subject requirements are listed on our individual course pages and in this summary table of entrance requirements. 

Are my GCSEs good enough for Oxford?

GCSEs will be taken into account when we consider your application but they are just one aspect that we look at. Tutors will also consider your achieved or predicted grades at A-level (or other equivalent qualifications), your personal statement, academic reference, and any written work or written tests required for your course. If your application is shortlisted, your performance at interview will also be taken in to account. Further information about how we consider GCSEs in context is available on our UK qualifications page.
