About the EXADEP™ Test

Examen de Admisión a Estudios de Posgrado™ (EXADEP™) measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical reasoning skills. Test scores can be used by admissions offices or fellowship panels to help predict a test taker's performance in graduate school.

The EXADEP test contains five sections. Four of the five sections are given in Spanish and measure vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, mathematics, analytical reasoning and written expression. The fifth section is in English and measures vocabulary, grammar and reading comprehension.
