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. We also strongly advise that you spend some time preparing for your test, exploring our test resources and practising using the past papers available from your test page (see menu below). Evidence suggests that people who have researched and practised their test do better and you can do this by using our online resources. 

Our University's admissions tests are administered by Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing (CAAT). Registration isn't automatic and just completing your UCAS application won't register you for the test so please make sure you follow the process carefully. 

Start by using 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.
