Oxford ELAT dates and deadlines

The dates of the Oxford ELAT test cycle are designed to fit in with the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) cycle for applications to the University of Oxford.



1 September 2023 Registration opens. Test centres can register candidates from this date.
29 September 2023 Deadline to apply for modified papers (e.g. enlarged print)
29 September 2023 Registration closes. 
19 October 2023 Test date


Please note: we reserve the right to make changes to these dates.

Reminder: the 29 September deadline is the last date for test centres to register you for the test, so you will need to register with a test centre well before then. Test centres may set their own deadline in advance for accepting registrations, so please make sure you speak to them as early as possible.

Results released: Test scores will be automatically distributed to all applicants shortly after college decision letters are sent in January. Applicants will still be able to write to their college to request feedback.

ELAT costs 2023

We do not charge candidates to take this test. However, please be aware that some independent test centres do charge an administration fee to candidates; you should contact your centre for details.
