Most Popular Questions

What subjects should I take to A-level (or equivalent)?

Any specific subject requirements are listed on our individual course pages and in this summary table of entrance requirements.

Are my GCSEs good enough for Oxford?

GCSEs will be taken into account when we consider your application but they are just one aspect that we look at. Tutors will also consider your achieved or predicted grades at A-level (or other equivalent qualifications), your personal statement, academic reference, and any written work or written tests required for your course. If your application is shortlisted, your performance at interview will also be taken in to account. Further information about how we consider GCSEs in context is available on our UK qualifications page.

What grades do I need to make a competitive application to Oxford?

The exact subject requirements vary depending on the course you want to apply for. As a guide, you will need to achieve between AAA and A*A*A at A-level or an equivalent level qualification. Read our course pages to find out the specific requirements for each.

When can I visit Oxford University?

Our next University-wide Open Day will be in 2019 but you are welcome to make an independent visit. Other opportunities to attend events and find out more about studying at Oxford are listed in our events calendar.

Can I apply for entry in 2019?

UCAS applications and admissions test registrations for entry here in 2019 are now closed. Applications for entry in 2020 can be submitted from early September 2019.  See Applying to Oxford for comprehensive information and advice on how to put in a competitive application.
