English Literature Admissions Test (ELAT)

Oxford & Cambridge Applications See all our Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing

The ELAT is a requirement for applicants to a range of English joint degrees at the University of Oxford (you may need to do another test in the other subject as well) and for English at the University of Cambridge [full list]

It is a very particular test requiring the comparison of two passages from a choice of six. The task is very open-ended and therefore tests not only your ability in English Language and Literature but also your opinion on what is important in the academic study of these subjects.

Your result will help them determine whether or not to interview you. Even after interview, your result remains part of the total consideration of whether to offer you a place.

The test is administered by Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing (CAAT) and ITS Education Asia is an open centre (#HK109). This means we can allow any candidate to sit the exam with us, whether or not you are an ITS student.

The test takes place in October and candidates enrol directly with ITS; ITS is BOTH the enrolling and examining centre for this test.

Further information on all aspects of the test is on the official website.
