*If the registration deadline falls on a public or national holiday, please be aware there is no extension to the registration period. Therefore, you must ensure your test centre registers you for the test in good time. 

Reminder: the 30 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.

**For international test centres the scheduled start times will vary, depending upon where they are in the world.

ELAT costs 2022

Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing does not charge for the Oxford ELAT. Some centres charge an administration fee to candidates sitting the Oxford ELAT, which covers the cost of invigilation, despatch costs and room hire which are essential for running the test. This is at the centre's discretion – check with your centre.
