placement tests in English are arranged on the Language Centre’s make-up exam days, and the registration procedure is the same as that of a make-up exam
. In all faculties, a student may be exempted only from mandatory basic reading courses in English; that is, not from oral communication, elective or master’s level courses. The possibility to take a placement test is mentioned on the WebOodi course descriptions. In addition, in the Faculty of Law, placement tests for the Advanced Legal English Writing for Academic Purposes courses are organized at the beginning of semesters.
Those with an excellent grade (80% of the tasks completed correctly) will receive credit for completing the reading course. The test focuses on language skills in the student’s field of study, and is intended for students who have developed their language skills to a fairly high degree. The student may take the test only once.
