As well as grades in Advanced Level examinations, we look at past academic record and school references. Most candidates are invited to come for interview in early December (see the University Undergraduate Prospectus for specific dates). Some subjects ask for one or two samples of written work. Where required, two copies of each piece of work must be submitted with a completed Cover Sheet. Others set short written tests, usually of an hour's duration, to be taken in Oxford during the interview period. You can find more detail of the admissions procedures for each subject via the University's How To Apply webpage.
