Clearly, the admissions test is a crucial part of a successful application, and starting early with preparation and practise is key. At William Clarence we introduce students to the test format and help them prepare well in advance. Test format varies from online questions to an essay. For many international students the admissions tests with an essay format are the first time they have had to write an in depth piece of work. UK students will be used to doing paper-based exams throughout their schooling thus far, and a computer-based assessment will often be very new to them. 

We can also help advise on test registration and finding a local test centre if necessary. Students at schools that are registered exam centres for UK qualifications will often be able to sit Oxbridge tests at school, but there are often a number of exam centres nearby that can accommodate private students.
