Here are the essential links for those considering applying to Oxford to read Modern Languages:

You will need to sit the MLAT exam at KES as part of your Oxford application so you should try out a sample paper and give it to your French/German/Spanish teacher for feedback. You should also see Mrs Lupton to arrange several individual interview preparation sessions.

For Cambridge entry these links will be useful:
