Writing Placement Exam for incoming students!

lilmelonredlilmelonred 14 replies2 discussionsRegistered User Junior Member
All incoming freshmen NYU students are required to take the writing placement exam from what my admissions counselor told me. Does anyone have any idea what the placement is for? How hard is it? What are we expecting for the exam?

    There was a brief discussion on this thread,

    http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/new-york-university/983966-writing-proficiency-exam.html

    It seems it is for Trasfer and International students who have had English as a Foreign Language in school.

    You can read more here, this might help

    "Expository Writing
    Because writing skills can always be improved, exemptions from the Expository Writing component are granted only for equivalent courses taken at another college or university.

    Foreign Language
    College students may fulfill the foreign language component by presenting outstanding scores on SAT II, Advanced Placement, or International Baccaulareate examinations or by passing a departmental proficiency examination. For further information, consult the CAS Bulletin under Placement Examinations in the Academic Policies chapter. For Advance Placement and International Baccalaureate exam equivalencies, consult the chart in the Admissions chapter.

    College students whose secondary schooling was in a language other than English and other than a language offered in the College, or who complete the International Writing Workshop sequence (EXPOS-UA 4, EXPOS-UA 9), are exempt from the foreign language component. Students who complete the combined B.S./B.E. program are also exempt."
