Academic Writing Placement Test for New Students

All new students (Master, Doctoral, CAS, Master’s leading to Doctoral, Diploma, Dual-Degree, Professional Master or Certificate leading to Master) who have either not submitted a test score for admission (e.g., those who submitted a certificate of English medium of instruction) or who have submitted scores from a one of these tests – CEFR, all types of TOEFL and TOEIC – must take the AIT Writing Placement Test (AWPT) to validate their writing scores and to be able to register for classes.

8 – 10 January 2018

8:30, 10:00, 13:00 and 14:.30(No Registration Needed)

You must bring your student ID card or passport with your student ID number to the Language Center, Room 216 to take the test.

Be on time; no one will be admitted late.

The writing test consists of two tasks. The first is a description of data (75-100 words), and the second is an essay (250 – 350 words). These two tasks are scored on a nine point scale. (The critieria for scoring are similar to those for the IELTS academic writing test.)

Writing Test Sample

Students with English scores below AIT’s admission requirements will be automatically enrolled in the following mandatory English Language (EL) courses. Students will need to pay a registration fee for EL courses before they can attend. The EL course level will be automatically assigned based on a student’s current English score:

  • 5.0 – EL15 Intermediate English Composition
  • 5.5 – EL19 Academic and Technical Writing

EL courses will be graded as Pass or Incomplete. This grade will appear on transcripts, but will not count towards a student’s GPA. Those who attend less than 80% of their EL classes will not be allow to take the final exam of the course. Therefore, passing of an EL course requires both participation and performance improvement.

Students are not allowed to retake the AWPT without attending their assigned EL courses. After sufficiently participating in an EL course, students will be allowed to retake the AWPT according to the LC’s testing schedule.
