Pre-Assessment Test

At Ocean English Academy we ensure that we provide our students with quality training and education and hence it becomes imperative for us to know the level of existing competency in a student so that we can concentrate and improve the areas where there is a deficiency of skills and knowledge.

In the following sheet there would be a pre-assessment English language questionnaire that the student will be required to take. The test is not to measure the educational qualification(s) of the student and should not be interpreted as a negative judgment of the quality of education that he/she has acquired.
