BALEAP guidelines for English language tests for university entry (March 2020)

19 March 2020

Dear colleagues,

BALEAP (2) Guidelines on English Language Tests for University Entry

I have revised and extended the guidelines which were last worked on more than a decade ago. In the guidelines to be replaced, for example, there is no mention of the Trinity ISE or about the changes brought about by the UKVI’s acceptance of the Secure English Language Tests (SELTs). The revised document is available above for your reference. I would encourage colleagues responsible for or in involved in English language assessment to read through the document with a view to commenting on the contents and particularly to suggest additional information about bespoke tests that they are using for university entry and/or pre-sessional exit tests, or any other relevant purpose should they wish to have their tests included.

John Slaght (BALEAP Testing Officer)

June 2020: Please note there is now an updated version of these guidelines.  Please refer to the news post here for the link.
