IML Optional Assessment

Courses available for assessment

IML offers optional assessment for all students enrolled in Year, Accelerated, Semester 2 Only, Semester 2 Continued and Summer intensive courses in order to attain acknowledgement of their language skills and abilities. There is no assessment for Short, Conversation, Semester 1, 'A', Refresher or Survival courses.

Examinations are held in a separate session after the last class, on the same weekday and time as usual classes. Examinations will only be administered at the dates and times set for the courses. 

Assessment is based on criteria and standards as set out in the Assessment Criteria Matrix. Listening and Speaking skills are assessed throughout the course, while Reading and Writing skills are assessed in a one-hour paper during an examination session. A Statement of Proficiency is issued following successful completion of the assessment.

For students who have completed a language course and cannot, or do not wish to, participate in formal assessment, a Statement of Attendance is available upon request to students who have attended at least 75% of the classes.

IML course assessment, if offered, is a service additional to your language course, available free of charge.


An IML Statement of Attendance is available upon request.

IML does not offer official accreditation of second language skills. If you are interested in having your second language skills accredited, please see Language Proficiency Testing page.
