University Admission Tests

Depending on your chosen institution and course, you may need to take an admissions test as part of your application (some joint degree courses require you to take two tests). As well as being an entry requirement, an admissions test gives you the chance to show your potential to succeed on your course.

To register, please come to the Exams Office with your UCAS personal ID and the test/institution/course you want to choose, ready. Please register by 1 October 2019.

Test date: 31 October 2019, 9:00am. Source: Information for Test-takers
