Test: All candidates will need to take both the Modern Languages Admissions Test (MLAT) AND the Oriental Languages Aptitude Test (OLAT).
Separate registration is required for each of the two tests and the registration deadline is 15 October.
If you are not used to translating without these aids, then we suggest that you practise doing so, and try to learn vocabulary, before sitting the test.
The results of the test are not considered in isolation but will be taken in to account along with all the other information from your application.
It is now too late to register for any of our admissions tests.
Candidates themselves do not need to make any special arrangements for the test, as this will be organised for them by their college.

All admissions tests (with the exception of the LNAT) are taken on Thursday 2 November 2017.
Candidates who are studying neither Latin nor Greek to A-level or equivalent (those applying for Course II) must take the Classics Language Aptitude Test.
This is designed to assess your ability to analyse how languages work, in a way which doesn't depend on your knowledge of any particular language, in order to gauge your aptitude for learning a new language rapidly.
