English Proficiency Examination Rules
Students must take English proficiency exams before finishing the second year of university; the score should be equal to or better than B2 of the CEF (to be equal to a TOEIC result of 750). If students scores are not adequate, they must sit make-up exams before they finish their third year, if their scores are still not adequate, they must sit exams again before graduation (they can graduate whether they achieve the standard or not).

Since the beginning of the 1995 school year there have been newly increased rules for English inspection.

Students within the department of Statistical Information that have not reached a score of 650 (or the same level) within TOEIC must make up for it with an English course offered at the university that is above the third year level. Seniors who have not made up the English requirement are subject to the department directly adding an English course into the curriculum.

Rules and Regulations: (example used from the 1995 school year)

  1. If students have taken the English qualifying exam before the school year starts and have CEF grades that have reached the B2 level, then they have until December 31, 1995, to register their grades with the department’s office. Otherwise, the student will be regarded as not having taken the exam.
  2. Students who have not passed the CEF English examination B2 level before the school year starts should participate in it by April 30, 1997, and submit their grades to the department’s office by May 31, 1997. Otherwise, the student will be regarded as not having taken the exam.
  3. (Regarding the previous topic), if English examination grades have not reached the CEF B2 level, then students should retake the test by April 30, 1998, and submit the grades to the department’s office by May 31, 1998. Otherwise, the student will be regarded as not having taken the exam.
  4. If English examination grades still have not reached the CEF B2 level, then students have until April 30, 1999, to retake it a third time and must submit the grades to the department’s office by May 31, 1999. Otherwise, the student will not reach the qualifications needed to graduate.

Department’s Evaluation Process

After the department’s secretary has proofread, the original document will be sent back to the student and the copies will be filed for future reference.
  2. After the end of each school year, each department’s secretary will announce the students that have not passed or taken the English examination.
  3. When one leaves school as a senior, a sealed procedure booklet containing the department’s English examination rules will be given.

 

CEF B2 High rank class

The aim is to understand complicated texts in both concrete and abstract forms and to understand its key points. Topics include discussing skills within individual disciplinary areas so that students can interact with native speakers of English in a smooth fashion and not feel nervous. Aiming at a broad range of topics for composing a synthesized and detailed essay and at the same time focusing on the focal points within those topics will illustrate the text’s strong and weak points.
