The test is said to intimate the candidates with the level of English to be considered in examining them for qualification for admission or interactive sessions/entrance examinations leading to final admission.

"The University of Ibadan has decided to sort out the issue of linguistic expressivity right from the entry point into the university higher degree programmes.
