Registration Day

09/07/2017 (8:00am - 1:00pm)

On this day, students will complete the registration process. This event is required for all students.

 

New incoming students will take two placement exams on Registration Day.

English Placement Exam:

The writing portion of the English exam is administered on campus on registration day. For the writing portion, you will be given a statement and asked to write about whether or not you agree with the statement.  In responding to the writing prompt, you should clearly explain your reasoning for the position you take. You will have 40 minutes to complete the writing portion of the English exam.

The grammar portion of the English exam will also be administered on registration day.  It includes analyzing the grammatical structure of sentences,  and finding and correcting typical grammatical errors such as, but not limited to, subject/verb agreement, pronoun/antecedent agreement, and pronoun case errors. The grammar test is 30 minutes long.

General Math Placement Exam:

The SECOND placement exam will be the General Math test. Should you not pass the test, you will be required to enroll in General Math which is worth 0 credit.

To help you prepare for the General Math test, a sample test has been created for you.  If you will take a few moments in the next few weeks to prepare for this test, you will be rewarded with ‘testing out’ of General Math altogether.

Please note that you will NOT be permitted to use a calculator when taking the test on September 7, Registration Day.  Should you have any specific questions regarding the test, please e-mail Mrs. Sousley at: jsousley@gsbc.edu.
