Dear University of Oxford,

Thank you very much for that excellent report on the average mark of applicants who take the TSA from state and private schools. I am now wondering if you could repeat such an enquiry for all the Oxford specific aptitude tests taken by applicants (HAT, PAT, CAT, ELAT, MLAT, OLAT). To repeat:

1. What is the average mark of a candidate who attends a private school and what is the average mark of a candidate who attends a state school for each of these aptitude tests?

2. Broadening the question, is it possible to ask the same question for Oxford applicants who take the LNAT and BMAT (compare average state and private mark)?

Yours faithfully,

william dry
