For any BAFEL course, you need to take a test for your application. This one-hour entrance test comprises mainly multiple-choice questions with a few open-ended questions.
Additionally any learner who wishes to enrol in a BAFEL programme must demonstrate a keen interest in learning beyond what is taught in schools. He/she must gravitate towards linguistic arts and the English language, and/or have wide interests in one or more of the following areas- arts, humanities, social sciences and the English langauge.
You can phone in to make an appointment. Once you have arrived at the premises, you will take the test.
No. However, you must have demonstrated your interest in either the English language or in any of the above mentioned areas. Having a good grasp of the English language will certainly aid in the understanding, reading and writing components of the various courses.
No preparation is necessary.
‘Difficult’ is a very relative word. What is easy for you may be difficult for another person.
On most occassions, yes!
This is not an open book test, therefore you will not be allowed to discuss, confer or consult any other source. Mobile phones and other electronic devices are strictly not allowed during the test.
A school exam is extremely focused on a few components such as grammar, vocabulary and comprehension skills. The BAFEL entrance test will ask general knowledge questions in the above mentioned areas.
If you pass the entrance test, you will firstly be congratulated.
