Administering our tests
In partnership with the University of Oxford
The Admissions Testing Service is working with the University of Oxford to assist in the administration of its Modern Languages Admissions Test (MLAT).
The tests are for applicants to certain undergraduate degrees in Modern Languages, Linguistics and their joint schools at the University of Oxford.
The MLAT is a paper-based test, which consist of several parts for different language and linguistics courses, as well as a Philosophy paper for the joint course of Philosophy and Modern Languages. Candidates will need to take a maximum of two papers. The Philosophy paper is 60 minutes long, and each other paper lasts 30 minutes.
The University of Oxford is responsible for the setting and development of the MLAT, including the test format and scoring. For general information about the MLAT, see the University of Oxford’s admissions tests webpage.
The MLAT takes place on 2 November 2016 at 09.00 GMT. The scheduled start times for international centres will vary, depending upon where they are in the world. Most candidates will sit the MLAT at their own school or college. Other candidates can find a centre.
Test results are not published automatically, but candidates may request their test score as part of the usual University of Oxford feedback process.
