FAQs for students who fail both English Diagnostic tests

What happens if I do not pass?

To be eligible to apply for admission into Dentistry, Medical Laboratory Science, Medicine, Pharmacy, or Physiotherapy via the Health Sciences First Year Category, students must pass either the English Diagnostic Test or ENGL 126.

Students who do not pass the second English Diagnostic Test will be required to enrol in ENGL 126 during Semester Two. This paper is designed to provide students with the writing and speaking skills necessary to succeed at a university level.
