Admission à l'oral

In this film, a girl receives a letter from a university that her grandma has torn up and hidden from her. The girl pieces back the letter and reads it. The subject line of the letter says:

"Admission à l'oral du concours de" and then I can't read the rest.

Do you think a letter with this subject is inviting her to come for an interview for a place on a course? Or to take an oral acceptance exam?

Thanks for any hints...

    A "concours" is a competitive entrance exam. I would imagine that to apply for admission the girl had to submit a written paper, and then the best of the applicants were invited to an "oral" stage - in English you'd probably call this an admission interview.
