Students applying for very competitive courses will sometimes be required to take a test prior to being invited to interview. This mainly applies to medicine and Oxford/Cambridge courses but sometimes other students are asked to take a subject test. You should ensure you check whether these tests are/may be a requirement for you and make sure you familiarise yourself with the practice material and key dates over the summer. In most cases, you will need to register yourself but you may need to go through Mrs Sharp the school exams officer.
Most common tests (this list may not include every course so you should check yourself)
UKCAT – UK Clinical Aptitude Test –
Many medicine courses require this, you can register at any time from 1 May 2015 and must have registered by 22 September and have taken the test by 6 October 2015.
