Entrance Exam Guides
A growing collection of entrance exam guides written by members of our very own ISoc community.
Some courses at Oxford may require you to undertake admission exam(s). Check what exams your course requires with our Subject Guides or through the University of Oxford’s admission requirements page here. Our guides here provide an overview of admission exams, advice on how to answer certain sections and recommended preparatory work.
We understand that taking these admission exams can be daunting. However, bear in mind that the application process to Oxford is a holistic one, meaning that everything is taken into account – interviews, submitted work, academic grades and personal statements and even contextual data.
Please note that these guides offer advice created by current students and should not be taken as a mark scheme or as the way to do these exams. We recommend looking at the official guides on the University of Oxford’s website for any changes and updates.
