3 EmSAT English Test Information The test information and example questions in this section come straight from the Ministry of Education s website about the EmSAT ( emsat.moe.gov.ae ). Make sure you check the website regularly to stay up-to-date on the latest information posted by the Ministry! There is one major difference between the EmSAT English and computer-based tests you may have taken before. On other computer-based tests, there might be one time limit for the whole test. But on the EmSAT, each section has its own time limit. That means you can t go slow on one section and make it up on the next. If you run out of time on one section, you will be automatically moved to the next section. Also, the Vocabulary and Grammar sections are divided into three parts, each with its own time limit that can be as short as 3-4 minutes for 10 questions! So when you are doing EmSAT practice material, try grouping the questions into groups of 10 or 20 and setting yourself a time limit of 5-10 minutes. Finally, many questions on the EmSAT are multiple choice, and there is no penalty for guessing, so don t leave any questions blank! Answer every question and you increase your chance of getting a good score. Ministry of Education EmSAT information and example questions Total Time for Test: 2 hours EmSAT English Achieve assesses the extent to which a test taker is ready to study in an English medium college or university.

(NOT very brilliant ) Exam practice 1. My family needed help at the airport because our luggage was for us to carry. A. totally heavy B. too heavy C. heavy enough D. not heavy at all 2.
