Note that part of the English placement test is computer-based when testing on Listening, Reading and Grammar, and the final part of the test requires a handwritten essay on a provided topic. Moreover, the math placement test is entirely computer-based with pencils and scratch paper provided at the Testing Center. Also, the use of approved types of calculators is allowed during the math placement test (contact Daniel to find out if your calculator may be used).
