As per this webpage

“Please note, some test centres set their own (earlier) deadlines for test registration. Please check if this is the case with your chosen centre well in advance, to ensure that they register you for your test(s).”


Admissions Testing: How to Apply – Instructions

Fees, and instructions for how to pay, will be confirmed via email.

2 Do not pay finance until we have confirmed fees to you.

The school is not obliged to offer reminders of non-payment – if you fail to pay, and miss the entry deadline, there is nothing the school can do – Cambridge Assessments do not allow late entries, for any reason.

4 Once you have paid, we will make your application and email you confirmation, in the form of a screen shot from the Admissions Testing website – see the example image below;

5 If you do not receive this candidate entry confirmation within two working days of payment, or by midday on the entry deadline date (whichever is sooner), please assume that you have not been entered for the test.  You must get in touch immediately – an email will not suffice – you must speak directly with the Examinations Officer, or a member of staff within School. It is your responsibility to ensure you have received this candidate entry number as confirmation that you have been entered for the test.

You must check that the information in your entry confirmation is correct and, as above, contact the Examinations Officer immediately, if anything is incorrect. We cannot make any changes after the entry deadline has passed.

6(i) If you are sitting more than one Admissions Test, you must speak with the Examinations Officer as soon as possible after receiving your confirmations – if a Timetable Variation application is not submitted (and approved by Cambridge Assessments) by the deadlines listed above, you may be unable to sit one or more of your tests.

6(ii) If you are entitled to any Access Arrangements (i.e. extra time, or the use of a coumputer) you must speak with the Examinations Officer as soon as possible after receiving your confirmations – if an Access Arrangement application is not submitted (and approved by Cambridge Assessments) by the deadlines listed above, you may be eligible to receive your Access Arrangement for your test(s).

If you miss any deadline because you fail to follow any of these instructions, we cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions – including failure to make entries (see 7(i)  and 7(ii), below)

7(i) As per the University of Oxford admissions tests web page,all candidates must “Ask your school/college to register you for your test(s) by [the entry deadline]. Ensure they do this well before the registration deadline, as late registrations are not accepted.”

7 (ii) As per the University of Cambridge pre-interview assessments web page, “As late registrations are not accepted, you need to ask your centre to register you well before the registration deadline.”

Your application email must contain the following information, correctly formatted;

The subject line of your email must include (in this order) your examination candidate number and full name.

Exam Candidate Number:
