Urdu Placement Exam for Spring 2015

March 26th, 2015

 

Date: Friday, April 17, 2015

Time: 4:30PM- 7:30PM

Location: WAG 112

All students taking the exam will need to have an official photo identification (UT ID) card with them.  They will also need to bring with them a form that they will receive from Student Testing Services after they have paid the required fees.

http://www.utexas.edu/maps/main/buildings/gsb.html

DETAILS:

All students who appear for the placement exam will take one exam.  On this exam, if they receive 90% or higher, then they will receive credit (in hours only), for two years of Urdu (Urdu 506, 507, 312K and 312L = 16 hours).  If the students receive a score in the range of 75-89, then they will receive credit (in hours only) for one year of Urdu (Urdu 506 & 507 = 10 hours).  The students will not receive a letter grade for the same exams since we only give letter grades for courses completed in residence at the University of Texas at Austin.  Thus the exam will not have any impact on the students’ GPA. 

CONTENT:

Ninety percent of the exam will require the students to write in the Urdu script.  The exam will include translation exercises (from English to Urdu) as well as Urdu reading comprehension.
