Covid-19: important information for candidates
To ensure we can run our November admissions tests safely, this test will not take place on 4 November as previously scheduled. The new test date will be 5 November 2020.
Candidates should register with their centre in the usual way.
For a summary of all the changes to the Oxford admissions tests dates, please visit our Covid-19 page.
The dates of the PAT test cycle are designed to fit in with the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) cycle for applications to the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge.
Please note: we reserve the right to make changes to these dates.
*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 centre registers you for the test in good time.
Reminder: the 15 October deadline is the last date for centres to register you for the test, so you will need to register with a centre well before then. 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 centres the scheduled start times will vary, depending upon where they are in the world.
Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing does not charge candidates who have applied to a course requiring the PAT at the University of Oxford.
Some centres charge an administration fee to candidates sitting the PAT which covers the cost of invigilation, despatch costs and room hire which are essential for running the test: contact your centre for details.
