Admission into U.K. universities... help!

<p>What tests besides SAT's, and AP's do I need to take to get into a U.K. university like Oxford, Cambridge, or Durham? Do i have to take any extras??</p>

<p>If you are an international student, you might need to take the IELTS or the TOEFL.</p>

<p>Or score higher than 650 on CR, then you don't need to take the TOEFL</p>

<p>It depends on your nationality -- if you are not a U.S. citizen, Cambridge might let you use 'American qualifications' (i.e. SATs and APs) as evaluation criteria, but I am not sure about Oxford (you would be better off emailing them and asking specifically). Also, requirements differ on college-by-college basis (which both Cambridge and Oxford consist of). Sometimes, the colleges will ask you to spend at least one year in a bachelor's program in your own country. The English requirement (if English is not your native language) is usually a 7.0 or above on IETLS (Cambridge and Oxford) or 100+ on iBT toefl (Oxford). I am not sure if Oxbridge accept SAT as a proof of English proficiency.</p>

<p>Here's a quote from Cambridge's website on American qualifications: </p>

[quote]
Prospective applicants from the USA taking SATs and Advanced Placement Tests should note that offers are usually made on an individual basis. In addition to a high pass in the High School Diploma and the SAT, successful applicants have normally achieved 5s in at least five Advanced Placement Tests in appropriate subjects.

<p>Here are the U.S. qualifications required to be considered at Oxford:</p>

<p>

SAT Reasoning Test with at least 1,400 in Critical Reading and Mathematics and preferably also 700 or more in Writing, giving a combined score of at least 2,100
OR
ACT with a score of at least 32 out of 36.</p>

<p>AND</p>

<p>Grade 5 in three or more Advanced Placement Tests in appropriate subjects OR SAT Subject Tests in three appropriate subjects at 700 or better.

<p>some tests:</p>

<p>TSA: for selected social sci/humanities courses at Oxbridge, UCL
LNAT: for some law schools including oxford
Cambridge Law Test: self-apparent
BMAT: for medicine
ELAT: For English Lit
STEP: For Cambridge mathematics</p>

<p>so it really depends on the course and the uni in question.</p>
