Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing
Depending on their chosen institution and course, candidates may need to take an admissions test as part of their application (some joint degree courses require candidates to take two tests). Cambridge Assessment is part of the University of Cambridge, and the tests provide a fair measure of skills and aptitude to help candidates make informed decisions.

Cambridge Assessment works closely with universities, governments and employers to enhance their selection processes and offers a range of tests to support selection and recruitment for universities, governments and employers around the world.

The tests…

  • make comparing a large pool of international applications easy, as the admissions tests provide a trustworthy benchmark for students’ abilities
  • give every person the opportunity to let their true potential shine
  • include free preparation material to help applicants prepare for a test, including practice papers, guides and support materials
