Course objectives
The test consists of ten parts, each testing the knowledge of one linguistic discipline. These nine parts correspond to the nine A and B linguistics courses offered at the Department of English and American Studies within the Bc program. Each student has to fill in Part 1 and Part 2 (corresponding to two A courses) and three of the remaining seven parts (corresponding to the three B courses that the student had taken during the Bc program). Each part of the test consists of ten questions, related to the topics and study materials discussed in the individual courses. The entire test takes 60-90 minutes.
Written English Proficiency Examination - CPE level (90 minutes)

Literature Paper
An essay in response to one of six questions offered. The questions will be of a general nature rather than directed at specific period courses, and designed in such a way that you will have to draw on works studied in more than one course. References to works other than those studied in courses within the department will be welcome. The answers, however, must deal with literatures written in English. The examination will last 120 minutes.

Cultural Studies Paper
There will be six questions, one of which you will choose and answer. The questions will be designed in such a way that you will have to draw on more than one course to provide a satisfactory answer. The examination will last 120 minutes.
