Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
You are here:
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is monitoring the situation with the spread of Novel Coronavirus very closely. Our top priority is to help to protect the health and safety of our candidates and their families, and of the staff in our centres.
We will do everything we can to minimise disruption for candidates, centres and the institutions using our tests, while complying fully with international best practice and the advice of national and local healthcare authorities.
As the information about Covid-19 is changing rapidly, we will provide regular updates on this webpage as the situation unfolds. We understand you will have concerns around whether or not our tests are taking place, therefore we have provided detailed information about our test sessions below:
To ensure we can run our November admissions tests safely across the world, adhering to local social distancing guidelines, we have moved some of our tests to a different date.
Some tests will run on the previously scheduled date of 4 November and others will run on the new date of 5 November (see table below). Candidates should register with their centre in the usual way. Please make sure you check the date for your test carefully.
Some tests will also be taken on computer (see table below) instead of paper-based delivery. We understand both candidates and centres will have lots of questions about this. Please subscribe to our Support Site article for the latest updates and FAQs around computer-based tests.
Unable to access a test centre due to Covid-19?
For candidates who are taking a computer-based test and are unable to access a test centre due to Covid-19 restrictions, we can offer a remote proctored test service for BMAT, CTMUA, TMUA, TSA and TSA S1 only. This means you will be able to take the test on a laptop or computer in your preferred location. For further details about remote proctoring, the criteria to apply for the service and information about how to register for it, please read our Support Site article. The deadline to apply for remote proctoring was 26 October at 18.00 (UK time).
For candidates who are taking a paper-based test and are unable to access a test centre due to Covid-19 restrictions, please read our Support Site article which outlines the alternative options that are available for you.
The table below provides a summary of the test date changes:
*Your school/centre will be able to advise whether you should bring your own laptop or if a computer will be provided for you. Please note, the test format will not change.
