Abstract: The relatively large number of university applicants predicted multiple A-grades in end of school A-level examinations when they apply has led to growing interest by several Universities in special additional tests for admissions purposes. The UK Government is also concerned about access to university courses, and in May 2003 Secretary of State for Education and Skills Charles Clarke requested Professor Steven Schwartz, Vice-Chancellor of Brunel University, to conduct an independent review1. The enquiry’s concerns about widening access to higher education has also led to a search for additional admissions indicators. Tests based on Thinking Skills appear promising for both purposes, and CAA has a major contribution to make in delivering them successfully.
