Placement Exam

Please remember that the placement exam is a tool to help place you in the appropriate language course. You are not expected to know all of the answers, so if you come across something that is not familiar or if you don't know the answer, please don't panic. Answer the question to the best of your ability and move on to the next one. It is important that you take this exam without outside help, in whatever form, as this may skew the results and you might end up in the wrong course.

Please remember that, as stated in the Statement of Intellectual Responsibility in Amherst College's Honor Code: "...the College considers it a violation of the requirements of intellectual responsibility to submit work that is not one's own or otherwise to subvert the conditions under which academic work is performed by oneself or by others." 

Please use your Amherst College Username and ID Number when registering for the Spanish Placement Exam.
