AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF BEIRUT
Department of Arabic and Near Eastern Languages
The Arabic Placement Test is optional. Students who opt not to sit for the APT will have to register in ARAB 201B, 202 or any course above 211 excluding ARAB 213, 214, 215, 216, 217, 218, 219, 248, and 256. The option of APT will be reserved for those students who think they may be too weak to follow higher courses and that they should take ARAB 201A. Such students may sit for their APT to ascertain that their level of proficiency in Arabic is not appropriate for a higher course. This will be further ascertained during the course itself. This does not include students who are exempted from Arabic. The results of the test apply to the term in which the test is taken and to the following term.
