News on the forthcoming Admissions Test:

In order to streamline our admissions procedure, to promote fairness, to enhance the possibility for alternative offers, and to prepare for upcoming changes in the A-level system, the Department is developing a new Admissions Test that we hope to use in our selection procedure. It has been decided however that the Test will not be made publicly available this year, but that it will be trialled "in
house". It is proposed that the Test will be made nationally available for the 2016/17 cycle in the Autumn of 2016, when it would become a full element of our selection procedure. Updates will be posted here when they are available.
