Admissions tests | University of Oxford

Admissions tests

Many of our courses require applicants to take an admissions test, and we use these tests to help us choose between all the excellent candidates who apply to study at Oxford. To make your application as competitive as possible it's very important that you register for and take any admissions tests that are required for your course. Please use the dropdown menu below to check whether your course requires you to take a test or tests.

Make sure you get your test candidate entry number from your school or test centre as proof of entry by 6pm on 15 October. Please note that school error will not be taken into consideration if the deadline for registering for these tests is missed.

We are aware that many are being affected by new lockdown restrictions.  In particular, the new lockdown in England which begins on 5 November, and the Welsh firebreak.  However, schools and other educational institutions are remaining open and admissions tests are expected to go ahead in UK test centres as normal on 4 and 5 November.  Please contact us at www.ox.ac.uk/ask  if you have any questions.
