Student Professional Tutor Date Subject Rating Comment
Sam 27 Nov 2022 ELAT
Sam was great at helping me get a feel for how an Oxford interview would work. He even ran overtime and we finished later than ought to in order to get more questioning in for me.
Sam 28 Oct 2022 ELAT
Sam was very clear in his teaching of the method he uses when analyzing a text. It helped me a lot in my own close-reading of poetry.
Sam 26 Oct 2022 ELAT
Sam was again very helpful in helping me unpack my ideas and making them clearer. He taught me new technique's and further developed my understanding of form and its effects. A fun and engaging lesson yet again!

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
