The maximum mark for the paperis 60. Each script is marked by two examiners. Each examiner gives a mark out of 30, and the two marks are combined to give an overall mark out of 60. The full range of marks will be used.
Your Oxford ELAT score is used alongside the rest of your application in the University of Oxford's selection decisions. For further advice about the Oxford ELAT, pleasevisit the University of Oxford's website.
Where there is a difference of five or more marksbetween the two examiners, a third examiner will mark the script. The overall score will be the two nearest marks combined.
Exam scripts are marked by external examiners,NOT by the University of Oxford. However, the final grading will be decided by an invited panel of awarders including members of the Oxford English Faculty and selected representatives from schools and colleges.
A full breakdown of marks for each candidate is given to University of Oxford admissions tutors.
