Admissions tests

Important notice:

Following the technical problems experienced by some candidates undertaking Oxford’s online admissions tests in 2023, as well as their schools, colleges and other test centres, we have undertaken a detailed review of the issues to understand better how and why these occurred and taken on board the expert and valuable feedback shared. Our Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, Professor Martin Williams has recently written to all test centres to communicate our decision to end our relationship with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).

We are now working on alternative options for 2024 and beyond and will communicate the new arrangements as soon as possible and no later than the start of the new admissions cycle in early Spring. 

In the meantime, potential applicants are welcome to explore the past papers and resources still available on the individual test webpages which may be helpful preparation.
