English Language Level Test

A three-step assessment taken online to ascertain a student’s English language level and provide proof of English for UK Universities.

Online English Language Level Test

Oxford International English Test Centre offers the English Language Level Test (ELLT) as an alternative to students unable to access an IELTS or equivalent test as evidence of their English language level for entry into UK Universities. The ELLT is a three-step assessment taken to ascertain your current English language level, and can be completed 100% online. On successful completion of all three steps of the assessment students receive a certification and full report, allowing you to move forward and apply to university courses with proof of English without ever leaving your home.

If, upon completion of the test you achieve lower than the requirement to begin your academic studies, Oxford International English Test Centre offers students a 6-week or 12-week online pre-sessional English course designed to help boost your English language skills before beginning your chosen course.

The assessments are led by highly-qualified and experienced staff and processed by the UK language admissions team.

What does the Assessment involve?

The Online English Language Level Test (ELLT) with Oxford International English Test Centre is made up of three elements; an initial online test, followed by a writing task that is assigned and administered by email, ending with an oral test which takes place over video chat with one of our highly qualified English teachers:

  • The first part of the assessment is the online test. This will give us an initial assessment of your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills. The results from this test are submitted to the Admissions Team, who will guide you onto the second stage of the assessment.
  • The second part of the test is a writing task. The task is assigned to the student by email and must be returned to the Admissions Team within a certain time limit. The task is then assessed by the assigned language teacher.
  • The final part of the assessment is a formal, oral test that is conducted over video chat with your assigned language teacher. The assessment contains references to previous tasks to act as a check against identity and completion of task.
