Admissions Assessment

All applicants are required to take the pre-interview written assessment for ASNC at an authorised centre local to them (for a lot of applicants, this will be their school/college). Please see the Admissions Assessments page on the University website for further details.

General Comments

The main aim of the interview for ASNC is to ascertain your aptitude for the subject, and the strength of your interest in it. Commitment and keenness are essential, as the course is intellectually strenuous and demanding. You may be asked to look at some specimen passages of English, and to comment on them or ask questions about them.

Applicants tend to have studied English, History, Classics or Modern Languages to A level or an equivalent qualification, although occasionally applications come from students who study other, less obviously related subjects (e.g. Mathematics). If you have not studied languages to A level standard, we would normally look for some other evidence that you have an aptitude for languages, although absence of such evidence need not be a bar to entry.
