Placement Test

All applicants newly admitted to the AEP will take the placement test. The test is conducted at around one to three weeks before the starting date of the semester you have applied to be admitted. The test is made up of four sections—listening (45 minutes), reading (45 minutes), writing (30 minutes) and speaking (10 minutes)—with the objective of gauging applicants' current English competency. Your starting level after entering the program will be determined based on these test results. The test fee is included in the entrance fee.
