Japanese entry level test

Students who have never studied Japanese

If you have no experience with the Japanese language should enrol in ATS1141 - Japanese introductory 1 (Semester 1).

Students who have completed Year 12 Japanese

If you have completed VCE Japanese Units 3 and 4 or an equivalent in another state of Australia, you should enrol in ATS2143 - Japanese intermediate 1 (Semester 1).

Please note:

  • You will need to request a 'manual enrolment' for ATS2143: see instructions below
  • If you achieved a raw Study Score of 40 or above in VCE Japanese Units 3 and 4, you may consider enrolling in ATS2145 Japanese proficient 1 instead of ATS2143. If you are interested in this option, consider taking the entry level test (see below) to ascertain if you are sufficiently prepared.

Other students: take the Entry Level Test

If you have not completed Year 12 Japanese but do have some knowledge of the language, or you are enrolling in semester 2 when ATS1141/ATS2143 are not offered, you must complete an online Entry Level Test to determine the appropriate language entry level. You must provide a valid Monash University email address to receive the automated email indicating what unit you should be enrolled in and providing further instructions on how to finalise your enrolment.

Please note that it is in the student’s interest to follow the test guidelines. A distorted score as a result of external assistance will result in incorrect entry level.

Students must not purposefully misrepresent their competency in the language in order to enrol in a level lower than her/his actual competency. This would breach Academic integrity policy, which may result in the student being disenrolled from the unit.
