Password testing is used by universities and colleges who wish to accurately measure English language level to:
- Speed up offer making and aid international student recruitment.
- Enable accurate pre-arrival counselling and study planning.
- Identify students joining university programmes in need of English language support.
- Place in English language classes on arrival.
- Check progress.
“There is no test that can compete with Password Knowledge for its combination of state-of-the-art question design, security, reliability and simplicity of use, delivered at such a low cost. NCUK has used Password Knowledge as our standard test of entry since 2009, as it has proved to be an extremely reliable indicator of academic language ability and predicted final NCUK EAP grade. We now have the Password Knowledge test in use in more than
30 centres in ten countries across the world, and it continues to be popular amongst teachers and candidates.”
