Test Scores

  • Language Proficiency Tests:

  • Subject-Specific Tests:
    • Some Master’s programs, particularly in fields like business or engineering, may require scores from subject-specific standardized tests. For example:
      • Business programs may request GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test) or GRE (Graduate Record Examination) scores.
      • Engineering programs may request GRE scores.
  • Aptitude Tests (e.g., SAT, ACT):
    • While less common, some universities may accept scores from general aptitude tests like SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) or ACT (American College Testing).

It's crucial to carefully review the admission requirements of the specific program and university you are interested in, as test score requirements can vary widely. The official website of the university's admissions office or the department offering the program will provide detailed information on the required tests, minimum score thresholds, and any additional criteria.

Make sure to plan ahead and schedule any required tests well in advance of the application deadlines. If you have any questions or uncertainties, reach out to the university's admissions office for clarification and guidance.
