The Modern Languages Aptitude Test (MLAT) at Oxford
Any candidate applying to study Modern Languages at Oxford or Cambridge will have to sit a written paper as part of the admissions process: The Modern Languages Aptitude Test (MLAT) at Oxford and the Modern and Medieval Languages Admissions Assessment (MMLAA) at Cambridge. There are big differences between the two tests, from the structure and what they are testing to when they are sat. This blog covers the Oxford MLAT. You can read our blog on the Cambridge MMLAA here.

We can provide Spanish tuition tailored to specific exams for 13+ Common Entrance Spanish, GCSE Spanish, through IGCSE Spanish - Foreign Language, IB Spanish, A Level Spanish, and Oxford MLAT / Cambridge Modern and Medieval Languages Admissions Assessment. We help to improve exam performance by making use of past Spanish papers, reinforcing core learning, developing revision techniques, and helping students to push the boundaries of their knowledge of Spanish to differentiate themselves from fellow students.
GCSE Spanish students will need a solid grounding in Spanish language, texts, and culture. Our Spanish tutors will help your child develop a fluent knowledge of the language, and maximise their ability to translate Spanish across a range of different authors. The tutors we work with aim to build up your child’s confidence, speed, and accuracy under pressure in Spanish, equipping them to excel at GCSE level.
Our Spanish tutors can help your child across all areas of the IGCSE Spanish - Foreign Language curriculum. The IGCSE provides an excellent foundation for further study in Spanish, and the tutors we represent will help your child take full advantage of this, reinforcing their knowledge of the language and preparing them to perform well under examination conditions.
IB Spanish is a challenging qualification, requiring fluency in Spanish at a high level. Our Spanish tutors will help your child to gain a deeper understanding of the language, develop their translation skills, and make use of their knowledge successfully in an exam context.
A Level Spanish is a well-respected subject suitable for many future career paths, and students have to master the language to succeed. Our Spanish tutors are able to focus in on those areas where your child needs additional support, help them translate accurately under time pressure, and ultimately prepare them to perform strongly in these key exams.
Both these exams are designed to help whittle down the number of students moving on to interview stage when applying to Oxford and Cambridge, and as such are rigorous and competitive tests. Our Spanish tutors can help your child maximise their performance in this assessment, building on their knowledge and helping them to demonstrate the depth of their understanding successfully, as they compete for places to read Spanish at the prestigious university of their choice.
