All students are required to take our placement exam(s) to ensure they are enrolled in the correct classes when the semester begins. There is no time limit for the exams. However, an exam can only be completed in one sitting. If you do not know the answer to a question because you have not studied that concept, please mark "I don't know."
Once you take the placement exam, you will be contacted by one of our team members with information about which class is right for you. The Fawakih Academic Team reserves the right to determine the student's final placement.
