Plan your studies in the United States with a Pre-Arrival Test (PAT)
To help you plan your studies in the United States, ELS has created a Pre-Arrival Test (PAT). The PAT is a quick, inexpensive, and easy way to find out your current English proficiency.
With that information, you will know how much time you will need to complete a course of study in English to reach your desired level of English proficiency. You will also know in advance whether you qualify for advanced level courses offered by ELS, such as the Prep for the GRE® or GMAT®.
The PAT is offered by select ELS authorized Counseling Agents. You may take the PAT in their offices on internet-connected computers. Through our worldwide network of ELS authorized Counseling Agents', you can successfully navigate the US university admission process and have access to over 600 universities.
