What is it?

Admissions tests are used by universities to examine applicants’ academic potential beyond their predicted grades from national examinations. These are written by the universities. Some of them are designed to be subject-specific while others are designed to test thinking skills in general.

These admissions tests are not only required for Oxbridge but also for other competitive universities, e.g. Durham, Bristol, Imperial, LSE, UCL etc. and competitive courses such as medicine and law.
