In partnership with the University of Oxford
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing is working with the University of Oxford to assist in the administration of its History Aptitude Test (HAT).
The HAT is a paper-based subject-specific admissions test for applicants to the University of Oxford’s undergraduate degree courses in History and its joint schools.
For general information about the test, including the test format and preparation, see the University of Oxford’s Faculty of History website.
Changes to the HAT for 2019 entry
The HAT will consist of one question based on an extract from a primary source, to be answered in one hour. The format of this question will be similar to question 3 of past papers which are available on the University of Oxford’s Faculty of History website.
If you are applying to the University of Cambridge to read History, or any history related course, please go to: https://www.admissionstesting.org/for-test-takers/cambridge-pre-interview-assessments/
The HAT takes place on Wednesday 31 October 2018, usually at 09.00 GMT. The scheduled start times for international centres will vary, depending upon where they are in the world. For exact timings, please check with your school or centre.
Most candidates will sit the HAT at their own school or college. Other candidates can find an open centre.

Test results are not published automatically, but candidates may request their test score as part of the usual University of Oxford feedback process.
