    So I’m an America applying to Oxford, and I have everything I need, except my admissions test (MLAT). There is no test center anywhere near me that has avaliable seats, and I couldn’t convince anyone else to apply to be a testing center. So basically, it’s impossible for me to take the test
    Will Oxford still consider me without it or should I just forget it?

    The admissions test is there for a reason, for admission. The results of the admissions test play a large part in deciding whether or not to give you an offer. If you can't do it then you have a 0% chance of getting in as it's a mandatory requirement and it wouldn't exist if it wasn't.

    You would have to email the college you applied to explain the situation and they may consider. Good luck

    Just email the admissions department and explain the situation, and they will tell you where you can sit the assessment.

    It's late to be asking this. Where are you located?

    My son's school registered for him to be able to take the MAT last year. Your school should really have done this.

    That’s the problem. There is literally no place anywhere near me to sit the test

    Which is why you should have sorted this out months ago if you were serious about going to Oxford, instead of 2 days before the application deadline when you can't do anything at all.

    Unfortunately, there's no time for this.

    Candidates must register by the October 15th deadline and must sit the test to be considered further.

    New York and Washington both have two testing centers for the MLAT. If you want it enough, hop on a plane.
