*Placement Tests

All students are required to take standardized placement tests in English and Mathematics. These tests are administered by the University during the orientation week and aim to assess each student’s potential. These tests measure quantitative and verbal aptitudes. All test scores are then screened by a panel. Appropriate programs are then drawn up to assist students in light of the observations made by the panel. Holders of the General Certificate of Education in English and Mathematics or an equivalent qualification are exempted from the placement tests.
