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 have announced some changes to how tests will run this year in light of COVID-19. For a summary of changes relating to admissions tests for 2021 entry, please refer to the FAQs provided.
