Additional work or tests

Depending on the course and College you apply to, an interview may be the only additional assessment we undertake. However, in addition you may be asked to:

  • submit one or two school/college essays, which may then be discussed at interview
  • take a further test either when you attend for interview or beforehand (either a subject-based test organised by your College or one of the tests outlined in this section)*

Your College will advise you if you need to send any work in or sit a test and the arrangements for this.
