Frequently Asked Questions
You will be exempt from taking the exam if you have confirmed transfer credit for English I or a confirmed score of 3 or above on the AP English exam. If you are unsure of your English transfer credit status or AP score, then you must take the exam. Please be sure that Wentworth has your final transcripts indicating a grade of "C" or better and/or an official score report from Princeton. Further, if you received transfer credit for ENGL105 (3 credits), you will need to complete ENGL199, a one-credit independent study. Please be sure to sign up for ENGL199 when you register. Please note that WIT does not accept IB credit.
I just got a letter saying I need to take my English placement exam. I already took it! Do I have to take it again?
No. If you completed the exam without error and printed out the summary of your answers, you are all set.
Because of the volume of tests being submitted we cannot answer individual inquiries, but if you completed the test without problems and printed out your summary of answers, there is no reason to check with us. We will contact you with a letter if we notice a problem with your exam.
