Geography Admissions Test (GAT)

Oxford & Cambridge Applications See all our University Admissions Tests Book prep or mock exam

ITS has run these Oxford entrance tests for many years. Oxford is now changing the way they are run. Details for 2024 will be posted here when they become available.

If you are applying to the University of Oxford to study Geography at undergraduate level, you will be required to sit the Geography Admissions Test (GAT).

The GAT is designed so that candidates should find it equally challenging, regardless of what they have studied or what school examinations they are taking.

It is a computer-based test lasting 1 hour and 45 minutes, made up of three parts:

Part A tests critical thinking and should take 30 minutes. It has two sub-sections. Each sub-section requires candidates to read a passage and then answer some multiple-choice questions.

Part B tests problem solving and should take 30 minutes. It has two sub-sections each requiring candidates to look at some information and answer some multiple-choice questions.

Part C requires candidates to read a passage of text and answer an essay question. It should take 45 minutes.

The test is now run by Tata Consultancy Services and ITS Education Asia is an authorized centre (#35351) for this test. Exam dates are held each year in October. Candidates can enrol directly with ITS, where we are BOTH the enrolling and examining centre for this test.
