Book your English Upgrading Test

Before booking any admissions test: You must have a KPU Student ID Number and Online Self-Service (OSS) portal access. To apply to KPU contact the Future Students' Office.

You should take this test if:

  • You achieved a C- or lower in English 12.
  • You have not completed English 12.
  • You wish to receive a BC Graduation Diploma.
  • You speak English fluently and understand spoken English easily but need to upgrade your reading and writing skills.

This test is an individualized assessment based on English skills. The key components are a Canadian Reading Comprehension Assessment with the level determined by reading a graded word list and an informal interview with a faculty member, followed by a writing sample. When the assessment is completed, a faculty member will discuss the results, make a course placement decision, and provide as much support as is needed to register for the required courses. There is no charge for this assessment.
