Taking the Analytical Writing Placement Exam

If you are an incoming freshman enrolling at UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Merced, UC Riverside or UC San Diego and you have not fulfilled the Entry Level Writing Requirement by May, you must take the Analytical Writing Placement Examination in May. International students will have an opportunity to take the exam at their UC campus in the fall. Students enrolling at UC Davis, UC Irvine, UC Santa Barbara or UC Santa Cruz will need to review their campus’s instructions for meeting the Entry Level Writing Requirement.
