The project evaluated the impact of test preparation for University admissions tests on test performance with data from Oxford University. The topic is of particular relevance because an increasing number of undergraduate programmes – nationally in the UK but also internationally - require applicants to take an admissions test. The outcomes of these tests are considered for admission to University in addition to prior school attainment measures such as GCSE scores. However, how students prepare for admissions tests and if this preparation has an impact on their performance in the test is an under-researched area.
