Oxford Online Placement Test in English


AIS Sprog offers Oxford University Press’s Placement Test in English to all new students to assess their English language skills. The result of the test allows us to better organise our teaching and to place students of a similar level together in groups


To take the test, we require the following information from each test taker:

  1. First name
  2. Last name
  3. Email address

Before taking the test

Once we have registered your information, you will receive an email, which provides individual log-in details, from Oxford University Press’s customer service department.

You will have up to 80 minutes to complete the test. Most participants spend between 30 and 60 minutes.

At the beginning of the test, you will be asked to choose which level best reflects your current abilities. However, the level you select is only the starting point. If your answers demonstrate a higher or lower level of competency, the test will automatically adjust the difficulty, i.e., it adapts to your answers.

Please note: You can only take the test once, and you should not use any external aids or receive assistance from others while taking the test.

Please adjust the volume on your device so that you can hear the recordings in the listening part of the test.

The test consists of two parts:

  1. Use of English
  2. Listening

When you have completed part 1 (Use of English), please proceed immediately to part 2 (Listening). The test usually consists of 30 questions in part 1 and 15 questions in part 2.

Throughout the test, you will be able to see how much time remains. If you cannot answer a question, we recommend that you not spend too much time on it – try to answer as best you can and continue to the next question.

To begin the test

Click on the link in the email you received from Oxford University Press, then enter your log-in details on the right-hand side of the page.

Test results

Once you have completed the test, you will be able to see your scores for the two parts of the test and your overall score by clicking on the “Results” tab at the top of the screen. From AIS Sprog, you will receive a “Result Card” either in print or by email.


Oxford University Press uses the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), which is the EU benchmark for language ability.
