Qualifying English Test



    Students admitted to undergraduate courses of study in NTU are required to take the Qualifying English Test (QET) unless they meet the exemption criteria. Students who fail the QET will be required to take Introduction to Academic Communication (HW0001) as a subject of study.

    Students (unless exempted from QET) will not be eligible to register for all language elective and selected Communication Skills courses, or to graduate from NTU if they do not pass QET or HW0001.



    The QET for Semester 1 AY2020-21 will be held on Tuesday, 4 August 2020. Please be present at your test venue at least 15 minutes before the commencement of the test.


    Students admitted after the above QET date will be arranged to sit for the next QET conducted.



    The duration of the test is 1 hour 15 minutes.


    Students are required to present both their QET Attendance Slip and identification document (i.e. matric card, identity card, passport, ez-link card, driving licence, student pass) when attending the test for attendance marking.
