The English Proficiency Exam held by the Eastern Mediterranean University Foreign Languages and English Preparatory School (EMU-FLEPS) was held face-to-face on the EMU campus on 3 and 4 September 2020. More than 200 students participated in the English Proficiency Exam, which started at 09:00 a.m. on Thursday, 3 September, 2020 at the Central Lecture Halls. Within the scope of the health measures taken by the EMU Rector's Office in order to protect the health of the students taking the exam as well as EMU staff, students without masks were provided with masks at the entrance and their temperature was taken. Students were placed in classrooms in accordance with social distancing rules.
“We Wish All Students Success”
Giving a statement on the subject, EMU-SFL Director Assist. Prof. Dr. Ramadan Eyyam said, “A series of health measures have been taken under the supervision of the EMU Rector’s Office prior to the English Proficiency Exam held by EMU-FLEPS. First of all, the ventilation systems of the classrooms were arranged to provide natural air circulation and the filters were changed. Students who came to the exam were placed in the classrooms in numbers allowing social distancing. Our exam is being held face-to-face for the first time since the start of the COVID-19 virus in March 2020. For our students who could not take the exam on 3 and 4 September 2020, the same exam will be held on 21 and 22 September 2020, under the same conditions. We anticipate that approximately 200 students will take this exam. We wish success to all our students ”.
