Give me Oxford University English Entrance Exam sample paper?

The English Language and Literature course at Oxford is one of the broadest in the country, giving you the chance to study writing in English from its origins in Anglo-Saxon England to the present.

The course allows a considerable degree of choice, both in developing personal interests across core papers, and in choosing a topic for dissertation and for a special option in final year. Options have included Literature and revolution, Postcolonial literature, writing lives, Old Norse, Tragedy, and Film criticism.

Course structure



Four papers are taken:
