General Information

The placement test is required for all new incoming students who 

1) want to enroll in a Japanese language class at UVA and

2) have some Japanese background or previously studied Japanese (but have not yet taken Japanese at UVA)

This test is designed to ensure that a student will be placed in a class that is appropriate to his/her level. Depending upon the test results, a student may receive credits for Japanese language courses taken outside of the UVA program. 

The test consists of two parts: a two-hour written test and a five-minute oral interview. You must take BOTH the written and the oral interview test on the date and time designated above

The test results will be emailed to you on the evening of the test day.
