The Oxford Test of English demo

Thank you for your interest in the Oxford Test of English demo. The demo will help you understand what to expect when you take the only English proficiency test certified by the University of Oxford.

We are currently migrating to a new Oxford Test of English platform, which means there are two demo links to choose from. This means we recommend that you choose the demo on the platform you will be taking the test on. Please speak to your Test Centre if you’re unsure which demo to use.

There may be small differences between the layouts of the test on the different platforms. However, please be assured that the content of both demos and the live test, across both platforms, is the same. Which means when you sit your real test you will receive the same results regardless of which platform you sit your test on.

For an experience that is most similar to taking the real test, please use one of the following desktop browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Safari or Edge in full screen.
