Update on Oxford University Admissions Tests

This week Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing, the company that delivers various admissions tests on behalf of the University of Oxford (confusing, we know!), have recently released a statement saying that they have “changed the way [they] work with the University of Oxford to deliver admissions tests”.

Although we’re not sure at this stage precisely how this will affect admissions tests for current and future applicants, this could mean a big change in the way some Oxford courses are tested in the admissions period.


From 2023, they have announced that they will no longer be delivering the following tests for the University of Oxford:

  • CAT (Classics Admissions Test)

  • ELAT (English Literature Admissions Test)

  • HAT (History Aptitude Test)

  • MAT (Mathematics Admissions Test

  • MLAT (Modern Languages Admissions Test)

  • OLAT (Oriental Languages Aptitude Test)

  • PAT (Physics Aptitude Test)

  • Philosophy Test




Our Private Consultations provide in-depth evaluation, strategy and next steps to achieve results. Suitable for those aged 14 upwards.

Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing have confirmed, however, that they will continue to deliver the BMAT (Biomedical Admissions Test) and TSA (Thinking Skills Assessment), which are used by applicants for Biomedical Sciences or Medicine, and Economics and Management, History and Economics, Geography, Human Sciences, PPE, Psychology, or PPL, respectively. These tests should largely remain unchanged compared to in previous years. 

At this stage, we’re not entirely sure what this change is going to entail for 2023 applicants, but it looks like some big changes are afoot for applicants of any subjects requiring the above admissions tests. We are keeping our eyes and ears on the situation, so do check back here or on our social media channels to be the first to know about what (if anything) will be replacing these tests!
