You must be registered in advance (separately to your UCAS application) to take the assessment – the registration deadline is 15 October 2019. Please note that open centres may set an earlier deadline for accepting entries, and it is your responsibility to check if this applies at your centre. Your assessment centre must register you for the pre-interview assessment; you’re not able to register yourself. See the written assessments page for information about assessment centres and registration.

The pre-interview written assessment for Education will be taken on 30 October 2019. Please check the Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing website for scheduled start times.

Please note that your performance in the pre-interview assessment will not be considered in isolation, but will be taken into account alongside the other elements of your application.

Mature students (aged 21 or over) applying to one of the mature Colleges should refer to the relevant information about pre-interview assessments on the written assessments page.
