Online ELAT Tutoring FAQs


Why study the ELAT?

The ELAT is an admissions test that serves as a criterion for English competence at the College of Oxford and English at the College of Cambridge. The test assesses students' ability to understand an unfamiliar literary text and to use their knowledge of literature to identify its components. 

As the competition for places at the most prestigious universities becomes fiercer, a standardized test was needed that could assess the true abilities of each student according to the college's requirements. The students who are even able to apply for Oxford and Cambridge have such good credentials and grades to show that the margin for successful admission is very small. The test is only one component of a student's application and does not determine final admission. The test is used to filter out the best and most deserving students and gives students the opportunity to show that they have that extra something that may not be reflected in their grades.

What university degree is ELAT useful for?

Giving the ELAT qualifies you as eligible to apply to both Oxford and Cambridge. The following courses are those in either institution that require the ELAT exam:



What careers can studying ELAT lead to?

English is fast becoming more than a global language. In fact, English is fast eliminating some of the oldest languages on earth. Studying English can be an excellent idea career wise if you work hard and have a bit of creativity in you. 

Here are some options for those who sit for the ELAT-Oxbridge entrance test: 

How expert ELAT tutoring can help you
