Course objectives
Before students can enrol in VB035 – English I, they must pass the entrance test (VB035T – TEST), which is a prerequisite for VB035. Only students who plan to attend the course VB035 register for the entrance test. Students who pass the test will be assigned a Pass grade for VB035T. This pass grade will allow them to enrol in VB035 (which must be registered for together with VB035T) and choose a seminar class. Students who fail the test and will not be assigned a Pass grade will drop the course as soon as possible (during the first two weeks of the Drop Period). The entrance test will take place in the first week of the semester. Only students who repeat the course VB035 (attended the course in autumn 2012 but did not pass) are exempt from taking the test.
