Take the Oxford Quick Placement test to determine your level of English.

All first year English Students are asked to take a brief test to self-assess their level of English, the Oxford English Placement Test. This is not a formal 'admissions test', and the results are indicative only, to give you and us a rough idea of where you stand with your level of English. You MUST however take the test in your first week. The tests will take place on Wednesday September 18 between 15 and 18, Thursday 19 September between 12 and 18, and on Friday 20 September between 12 and 18 in Room 1015 (anthropole). The test takes about 30-45 minutes, and you can simply turn up and take the test as soon as a seat becomes available.
