*Please note that most of the admission tests included in this section are completely new, and we are unable to share with you our experience as we have not taken the tests before. We suggest you look up the relevant websites which will be included later.
Most applicants are required to take a subject-specific written admission assessment, either pre-interview or at interview. In addition, some Colleges ask applicants for some courses to submit examples of their written work – one or two school/college essays – which may then be discussed at interview.
