    EXAMINATIONS DEPARTMENT

    We offer diagnostic testing, registration and preparation for most examinations required for admission to United States, Canadian, UK and Australian Universities. We specialize in TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication), SAT 1 & II (Scholastic Aptitude Test), GMAT(Graduate Management Admission Test) and GRE (Graduate record Examination). In addition we facilitate Exam Registration for all these exams at our Center.

    The UK Border Agency (UKBA) requires proof of proficiency in English language for migrants wishing to work, study and/or live in the United Kingdom. UKBA accepts scores from different examination bodies such as ETS (Educational Testing Services) and Cambridge ESOL).

    We offer preparation for most of the exams administered by these organizations namely TOEFL, IELTS, TOEIC, Cambridge First, Advanced and Proficiency Certificates i.e. FCE, CAE and CPE respectively.

    Most of the students especially for the TOEFL and IELTS come from countries in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, South America and Eastern European countries. For the other exams, we get most candidates from Kenya and other countries. The GMAT and GRE are taken by those aspiring to do the Masters degree as well as the doctorate.

    The courses range from about 2½ weeks to about 2½ months depending on the students' ability and performance on the diagnostic test. Sometimes the preparation period is determined by the proximity of the official exam date.

    We offer classroom instruction, listening lab, computer instruction and practice. Our materials are up-to-date and come directly from the official examination bodies such as Education Testing Service and Cambridge; the bodies which are responsible for making the actual tests. We have very recent past exams both on paper and in the computer. We have CDs for the TOEFL and IELTS and plenty of practice questions for all the tests. We administer classroom practice tests very regularly to determine the progress of our students. We insist on extra practice so we give assignments to the students everyday. Our books and exam preparation software are updated regularly.

    We do not offer any local certificates, but after sitting the diagnostic test, we provide a report card and upon sitting the official exam, the candidates receive their results directly from the ETS and Cambridge. Our teachers are very qualified and mainly experienced to handle the preparation for these tests. Among them are the initial founders of the American Universities and Colleges Admission tests preparation and diagnostic services during the mid 1980's. We have tested and successfully prepared very many students during this period. Our preparation success story can be attested to by our former students who have gone on to become prominent people in society.

    We also provide University Placement/Search Service whereby we help prospective students look for very competent Universities and colleges abroad, help them with the application process and guide them on visa application requirements.

    Our Exam Preparation department also has on offer tuition programs for Mathematics, Science and Chemistry (theory). We help students from secondary and primary schools prepare for their final year examinations in these subjects.
