Oxford and Cambridge entrance MLAT/MML revision course for boys

A specialised revision course is offered for young men wishing to prepare intensively for Oxford or Cambridge entrance.

The date for the MLAT exam is Thursday 2nd November 2017; the MML Admissions Tests takes place during the December interviews for candidates who are successful in obtaining an interview.

Our course will provide you with 25 hours of intensive teaching in last-minute preparation for these tests, plus the chance to explore a little bit of French culture.

The MLAT (for Oxford) focuses on the accurate translation of short sentences into French, whereas the MML test (Cambridge) invites candidates to write an essay in French.

“I’d like to thank the teachers at Chavagnes for the help in preparing for the MLAT and the Oxford interviews; I was delighted to be offered a place to read French at my chosen college and am sure that without the expert help and advice of Chavagnes teachers I would not have succeeded. Merci beaucoup, chers professeurs!”  Iwo Wojcik, Oriel College, Oxford.

“Thanks so much for the coaching for my Oxford entrance exam and interview; I am happy to tell you I have been given an unconditional offer at my chosen college for autumn 2017. Thanks again for all your help and encouragement.” James Battye.
