Exam format

Research language exams, with the exception of the Latin exam, consist of several paragraphs, but not more than a page, of an academic journal or other source in its original language. You will translate the passage with only the help of an English/exam-language dictionary.

The Latin exam consists of a set of passages, either for translation or for answering comprehension questions.

Exam translations are typically typed on a laptop provided by the Student Success Team.

Once completed, the exam is passed along to the grader. The Student Success team will notify students with the results of the exam.
