Oxford University uses the grades of the candidate by dividing them into four groups: Volume 4: Applicants less likely to be interviewed (unless other elements predominate the test's evidence). As a rule, ELAT is conducted at an applicant's primary or university. The test can also be taken at Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing authorized "open centres" around the world.
Deadlines for the test are set to coincide with the application deadlines for Oxford and Cambridge Universities. Applicants can register for the test from September to mid-October. The ELAT will take place at the end of October/beginning of November. The ELAT is conceived in such a way that it does not need much additional studies.
This is not a broad literacy test and there are no suppositions about the text that the candidate should have used. Applicants can practice for the test based on sample exams and previous work, which can be freely download from the Cambridge Assessment Admissions Testing website.
Elat, also Eilat, seaport, southerly end of Israel. Situated at the tip of the Negev and at the tip of the Gulf of Aqaba (Hebrew, Mifratz Elat), the east branch of the Red Sea. ?Aqabah ?Aqabah, Jordan, also situated on the Gulf of Aqaba, is 4 km (7 km) in the southwest.
The modern Elat lies westward of the remains of the biblical Elath (today in Jordan). It is said in 1 King 9 that King Solomon's vessels were sailing "near Elath" to the country of Ophir and brought back a load of golden. Nelson Glueck, the US archeologist who dug up the site of the antique Ezion donor (from 1940), came to the conclusion that she and Elath were one and the same thing.
It was a southerly station of the Limes Palestinae, the fortifications built by the Romans and the Nabataeans (Semitic peoples of old Arabia). Known as the Isle de Graye, it has the remains of a fort that marks the extremely southerly extension of Crusaderism. When the British Palestine term ended (15 May 1948), there was nothing but an empty post on the site of the Elat River at Rashr?sh.
At the beginning of 1949 the Israel military moved over 150 mile ( "240 km") from the back base to Be?er Sheva? (Beersheba) via the then road-less Negev and arrived on 10 March 1949 on the Red Sea coastline of Elat. Conceived in 1949 and established in 1959, Modern Elat is Israel's only market for the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean and the Far East.
There was a small harbour opened in April 1951, and after the 1956 Sinai campaign, when Egypt's power over the Straits of Tiran was breached at the Gulf of Aqaba entry, the harbour was greatly extended. After the Suez Canal was shut down (1967-75), the straits were opened again for trade of all countries and Elat was extended again.
Due to the extremely high temperatures and drought of Elat, the Israelis gave particular encouragement to the colonists who wanted to be there. Now Elat is connected to the populated parts of Israel by better motorways and frequent flights. The Red Sea coasts, with clear water, scenic core formation and sea creatures, have been encouraged as a tourism area; the dive is well-loved.
