In this Category Archive, we explore University Entry Tests and what they are. Some Universities make use of additional admission tests as part of their application process.
Firstly if you are applying to a University with a separate admissions test, you need to make sure of the deadline for the test, when you have to sit it and what it entails.

Also, make sure you are aware of the deadline for your UCAS application. You make your UCAS application online. UCAS stands for University and College Admissions Service. All students that want to study an undergraduate degree in the UK have to apply through the UCAS system. It is a centralised service for people to apply to University.

Make sure to check the requirements of the University that you/or your child wants to study at. Most admission tests happen between August and November of the year before your studies.

However, remember to check deadlines as some of these tests need to be done before your UCAS assessment.

These are some course-related admission tests:


  • Cambridge Law Test
  • LNAT – National Admissions Test for Law


  • Mathematics Admissions Test (MAT)
  • Sixth Term Examination Paper (STEP)
  • Test of Mathematics for University Admissions
