This test contains 60 questions and lasts 60 minutes. Based on the results, a student may be required to complete the Writing Sample Test or placed in either UNIV 1115, ENGL 1101 or ENGL 1102. If they are placed in ENGL 1102, they have exempted ENGL 1101 and will receive credit. The test can only be attempted once. You must be a UGA student to register for this exam.
The English Placement Test consists of two parts, mechanics and rhetoric. A score of 22 (part 1) and 20 (part 2) will place students in English 1102 and give them three hours of credit for English 1101.
