Sample tests

We have made slight adjustments to the MA Placement Exam.  The exam will be 2 hours. Therefore, the following changes have been made:

  1. The exam has been shortened.  The reading section has been shortened to 1.5 hours. The text is shorter and there are fewer questions in order to accommodate the shorter time frame.
  2. There will not be a break between the reading and composition sections.
  3. The composition section will remain 30 minutes and will follow the reading section immediately.
  4. Students with permission for extra time will be given the extension.

Please note that the format of the exam is the same; it has simply been shortened.
