Admissions Tests can help Admissions Tutors decide who is invited to interview, and who is ultimately awarded a place at Oxford and Cambridge. In early 2016, Cambridge introduced a suite of new Admissions Tests and as a result, most applicants will now prepare for a test as part of their Oxbridge application.

Admissions Tests can, and should be, prepared for – our Admissions Test Courses help students to perform their best in these tests. Last year, applicants on our courses improved their results by 20%.

PROGRAMME

Here’s an example timetable of how our Admissions Test Courses are structured to help applicants with their preparation:

10.30
Arrival and registration

Test strategy tutorial
With your Oxbridge test expert, you will go through an entire mock admissions test, learning how to approach questions and write model answers. In this first session, you will understand how to approach the unfamiliar style of admissions test questions and ensure you answer in accordance with the mark scheme specification.

Break

Test technique tutorial

In this second part of the day, you will continue to look at example questions and the paper as a whole. With your tutor, you will devise a strategy for approaching the test, including the best way to manage time, the content that is crucial to gain high marks, and which areas of your preparation you need to focus on.

Lunch

Timed admissions test

After lunch, you will sit a full admissions test in exam conditions. You will have the full experience of sitting an admissions test to ensure that you can apply what you have learned throughout the day, and are not unfamiliar with the time and style of content of the test when it comes to the real thing. Your admissions test will be marked and returned to you up to ten working days after the event.

17.30
Departure

Following the event, you will receive the final two admissions tests, totalling four complete admissions tests and answer sets, usually priced at £120. You will also receive a free Course Research Report for your subject with a value of £50.00.

Feedback on our Admissions Test Seminars

  • Although clearly both the admissions test and interviews are designed so that they are difficult to prepare for, the HAT Admissions Test Seminar and Interview Preparation Day gave me more confidence. Apparently I got 80 out of 100 whilst the average for people who got offers was 68 and for those interviewed, 62. I am sure the HAT day contributed to many of those marks.

    Laurie, HAT Admissions Test Course attendee, 2014.

  • I’m writing to thank you very much for the help you offered in preparation for my LNAT. The guidance you provided proved invaluable for the test, especially in the assessment of the MCQs, which I felt were my weaker side of the test. I hope you continue doing these seminars as your direction was fantastic and engaging!

    Tamara, LNAT Admissions Test Course attendee, 2014.

  • Fantastic – thank you so much. I learnt a lot and am now actually looking forward to the exam. You have de-mystified the BMAT for me. The presenter was fantastic. I understood everything he told us and feel much more prepared for the real test.

    Ameer, BMAT Admissions Test Course attendee, 2014.

  • Just thought I’d tell you that I asked Oxford for my ELAT test result now they’ve been released and found out I came 11th with 86%. I’m so happy but wanted to say thanks as I couldn’t have done it if I hadn’t been on the seminar day.

F.A.Q.

To determine whether the Admissions Test Course is suitable for you, consider the following questions:

 

Does my subject require an Admissions Test?

  • BMAT – Oxford and Cambridge Medicine
  • Cambridge Law Test – Cambridge Law
  • ELAT – Oxford and Cambridge English and joint courses
  • HAT – Oxford History and joint courses
  • LNAT – Oxford Law and joint courses
  • TSA – Cambridge Land Economy and Oxford Economics & Management, Experimental Psychology, Geography, Human Sciences, Philosophy & Linguistics, PPE, Psychology & Linguistics, and Psychology & Philosophy

 

 

How important is the Admissions Test?

The Admissions Test is a levelling measure of ability – they are designed to look unfamiliar to applicants and so Admissions Tutors use them as a gauge of a student’s potential to study at university. Along with the interview, they are crucial ways a student can demonstrate their academic ability and potential.

For some subjects, the Admissions Test will determine whether students are even accepted to interview – Oxford uses the BMAT score to help determine who is shortlisted to interview, for example, demonstrating that this is a crucial aspect of the application to master.
