The Foreign Languages Learning Service at the UGM Faculty of Cultural Sciences has launched a new version of the Academic English Proficiency Test (AcEPT), a nationally recognized academic English proficiency test.
This new version of AcEPT was launched on October 11, 2023.
According to the official statement from the center, this new version of AcEPT was created to provide freshness and variation in academic English proficiency tests.
The new version of AcEPT uses more efficient and high-quality questions, namely 120 questions, following the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) standards and has also been recognized by the Directorate General of Higher Education for lecturer certification purposes.
The new version of AcEPT consists of five sections: listening with 20 questions, vocabulary with 15 questions, grammar with 30 questions, reading with 25 questions, and composing with 30 questions.
Each section has a different duration, ranging from 15 to 45 minutes. The new version of AcEPT can be taken by anyone who wants to assess their academic English proficiency for study, scholarships, work, or research purposes.
“The Directorate General of Higher Education has recognized AcEPT. The test has become the standard for English language test quality in Indonesia and can be used as a reference by other universities that want to create similar tests,” said Dr. Nur Saktiningrum, the Vice Dean for Academic and Student Affairs at the UGM Faculty of Cultural Sciences, on Wednesday (November 15).
The center hopes the new version of the AcEPT test will benefit participants and improve the quality of English language education in Indonesia. This initiative supports Sustainable Development Goals, especially regarding fair and equal education.
The center also offers consultation and guidance services for participants who need assistance. Further information about the new version of the AcEPT test can be found on the official website of the UGM Foreign Languages Learning Service.
