4. ENGLISH & ABILITY TEST

Can I have some information about the English test?

Please click this link for more information about The English Test.

I heard that some candidates might skip the English test if they had an English certificate. What score do I need to get for exemption?

Yes, you can skip the English test, but only if you’ve reached one of these levels:
– TOEIC: 900 or above
– TOEFL iBT: 90 or above
– IELTS: 7.0 or above (with all skills from 6.5)

For exemption, in the Application Form, you should upload your certificate, which must be issued after Oct 08 2014 in case of expiration.


What score level do I need to pass the English test?

It depends on the English level of all participants but history data shows at least upper-intermediate level.

I do not have any English certificate, such as IELTS or TOEFL. Is it a disadvantage?

Don’t worry about that. There were many applicants still passing the English test and even becoming our winners without any certificate. You just need to well prepare and get yourself comfortable before each round.

What if my English certificate has been just expired, am I still exempt from English test?

No, your certificate has to be valid until the last deadline of Application Round, which is Oct 08 2016, then you will be exempt. So it has to be issued no sooner than Oct 08 2014.
