Any student who wishes to study Chinese or Indonesian language units for the first time at UWA will be required to sit a placement test.

The test takes about 30 minutes, and does not require any preparation. It is simply designed to determine the most suitable language stream for your skill level and experience. The test is required even if you are a complete beginner.

Please bring a pen or pencil, and during the test we kindly ask you to leave your belongings at the front of the room with mobile devices powered off.

NOTE: If you are a student already studying Chinese or Indonesian and have received a notice regarding a placement test, and have already sat a test previously:

  • First check that you are enrolling in the correct unit code (for example: you might want the Level 2 code CHIN2403 Chinese 3 rather than Level 1 code CHIN1403 Chinese 3); and,
  • If you think you're enrolling in the right unit code but are still receiving an 'invalid' status then please contact the Arts and Law Student Office for assistance.
