How to register for the Oxford ELAT

You need to be registered as a candidate by a test centre  (you cannot register yourself for the test).

You must take the test at a test centre that is authorised to run Admissions Testing tests (for most candidates this is their own school or college). Check with your Exams Officer if your school or college is already registered as a test centre that can run our tests.

If your school or college is not already registered as a test centre, they can check to see if they are eligible to apply to become a test centre. Institutions can register to become test centres at any time before the deadline of 12 noon on 16 September 2022.

If you are not able to take the test at school or college, you need to find an authorised open test centre where you can take the test.

If you cannot find a test centre within reasonable travelling distance of your home town, please read our Support Site article.

Follow these steps:

Please ask the Exams Officer at your school/college/test centre to register you and give you your candidate entry number as proof that your registration is complete.

You must provide your centre with the following information:

  • your name, gender, date of birth and UCAS number exactly as they have been entered on your UCAS application
  • the name of your university/ies, course/s and course code/s
  • details of any access arrangements you require, along with the evidence to support your request. Requests for modified question papers must be submitted to us by your test centre.

Please note: the deadline to apply for modified papers is 16 September 2022. The deadline to apply for all other Access Arrangements is 30 September 2022.

By registering for the test, you agree that data provided as part of the entry or admission process may be passed to any institution involved in your University application and that the data may be anonymised and used for research purposes. You also agree that if you obtain a place on a course where the test results form part of the admissions process, then your University may supply Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing with data about your application and results in subsequent assessments at that University, unless you specifically notify the University in writing. We store personal data securely and will ensure if candidate data is used in publications or research that it is used anonymously.
