Admissions deadlines (September 2024 entry)

Cardinal Allen Academic Scholarship assessment

This is a two hour written paper testing the candidate’s general academic ability. The paper requires the candidate to give opinions, discuss intellectual interests and analyse a piece of factual text. The paper is not subject-specific.

Candidates then sit a further paper of one hour on an academic subject of their choosing (this does not need to be a subject selected for A Level study).
