Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Administering our tests
You are here:
You need to be registered as a candidate by a test centre (you cannot register yourself for the test).
You must take the test at a centre that is authorised to run Admissions Testing tests (for most candidates this is their own school or college). Check with your Exams Officer if your school or college is already registered as a centre that can run our tests.
If you are not able to take the test at school or college, you need to find an authorised open test centre where you can take the test.
If your school or college is not already registered as a centre, they can apply to become a test centre. The deadline for applications to become a centre is 30 September 2020.
If you cannot find a test centre within reasonable travelling distance of your home town, please read our Support Site article.
For more information about when to register for the PAT and how much it will cost, see PAT dates and costs.
By registering for the test, you agree that data provided as part of the entry or admission process may be passed to any institution involved in your University application and that the data may be anonymised and used for research purposes. You also agree that if you obtain a place on a course where the test results form part of the admissions process, then your University may supply Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing with data about your application and results in subsequent assessments at that University, unless you specifically notify the University in writing. We store personal data securely and will ensure if candidate data is used in publications or research that it is used anonymously.
