Academic Test Only

IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO NOTE:  The variation in the academic test scores from 2015 to 2016 was due to a change of provider for the Verbal Reasoning test.  (Adding 25 to the scores for 2016 will bring them into roughly the same range as those for 2014 and 2015).  There is no pass mark for the academic test, places being offered in accordance with our admissions arrangements.
