OOPT - Oxford Online Placement Test

What is OOPT?

The OOPT is a computer-based test that reports the candidate's scores on a continuous numerical scale. It is a reliable tool intended for placing students in language courses at the optimal level.

However, it is a test of communicative English and grammar. It is not a test of spoken, written or Academic English.  

Some institutions accept these test scores for their entrance requirements, however, especially at B2 level or for degrees in mathematics and the natural sciences. But you should check with your intended faculty or study programme first to find out whether they recognize the OOPT results.


OOPT Numerical Scale


Level Score Range
Course Level
<A1 0 Beginner
A1 1-19 Beginner
A2 20-39 Elementary
B1.1 40-50 Pre-Intermediate
B1.2 51-59 Intermediate
B2 60-79 Upper-Intermediate
C1 80-99 Advanced
C2 >100 Proficiency


Interpreting the OOPT test rsults

Let's look at some examples. If a student scores 61 points, they will have reached a very low B2. A score of 71, however, indicates that a student is comfortably at Level B2.
