The Department of English Language & Literature presents a Preparation Course for candidates seeking admission to the 2021/22 Study-Year. The course is mandatory for candidates in the track without a Psychometric exam score or for candidates with an average that is lower than the required (600) average score. The course is also still highly recommended for those who do have a suitable average score. The course will provide tools for better writing skills in English as well as a glimpse into the Department's faculty teaching methodology. Those who take the course will enjoy a better start to the school year as they will be already "one step ahead of everyone else".
The course will be held in an online format, some of the sessions will be pre-recorded and will be free to watch over a limited number of days, while another part of the sessions will take place live via Zoom. The course will also include exams and assignments that will be regarded as a condition for advancing from one stage to the next.
