Admissions test information for Oxford applicants

Are you taking an Oxford admissions test this October? Registrations open on 1 September (and close 29 September) so check that you understand the registration process and talk to your test centre in good time. We recommend registering for your test even if you haven't submitted your UCAS form yet (our application deadline is 6pm UK time on Monday, 16 October). Candidates do better if they have prepared so make sure you have a go at the online practice test for your subject as well as thoroughly exploring all the past papers and other resources available for each test.

We provide step-by-step support for all our applicants. Our 2024-entry digital prospectus provides you with a quick and digestible overview of core information while more detailed admissions guidance can be found in our Guide for applicants.  We recommend that you sign-up now for our Choosing Oxford newsletter for step-by-step support with your application as well as some fun insights into student life here.  You might also like to watch our Official Video Guides. Details of other opportunities for you to explore student life at Oxford can be found in Increasing Access and in our outreach calendar
