The Oxford Test of English

In 2019, we launched a ground-breaking new language proficiency test, The Oxford Test of English. This computer-adaptive English proficiency test was developed by Oxford University Press, and is certified by the University of Oxford. It’s faster, more flexible, and more cost-effective than traditional tests. Click here to find your nearest test centre!
