admission tests

Many of the courses at the University of Oxford require applicants to take an admission test. The University use these tests to help them choose between all the excellent candidates who apply to study there. To make your application as competitive as possible, it’s important that you register for and take any admissions tests that are required for your course.

In 2023, you must register for any of the tests listed below between 1 and 29 September, before the UCAS deadline of 16th October.

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. We strongly recommend that you are registered as soon as possible after 1 September, even if you have not yet submitted your UCAS form.

Make sure you get your test candidate entry number from the centre where you have registered to sit the admission test as proof of entry, by 29 September.

Start by using the dropdown menu using this link to check whether your course requires you to take a test or tests and then follow the link to the relevant test/s
