University Entrance Exams & Tests

Oxbridge Applications 


Admission assessments and submitted work

Most applicants are required to take a subject-specific written admission assessment. This might be before shortlisting for interview (pre-registration required, for which you must be registered in advance) or after you’ve been shortlisted for interview (Cambridge College registered). You do not need to register for Cambridge College registered assessments and our Colleges will provide details directly to you.

The assessments are designed to supplement the information in your application and to assess skills, such as writing and language skills, and levels of knowledge and understanding relevant to your course. Your performance in the assessment will not be considered in isolation, but will be taken into account alongside the other elements of your application.

For some courses, you may be asked to submit examples of your written work – one or two school/college essays – which may then be discussed at interview.

Detailed information about each course’s admission assessment – including past papers (where applicable) – and whether any submitted work is required, can be found in the Entry Requirements tab on each of the courses pages. Our University tutors should be able to provide more detailed guidance.

The tables below detail which type of written assessment is required for each course for 2023 entry.

Admissions tests

Many Oxford University 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.
