About the EXADEP™ Test
Examen de Admisión a Estudios de Posgrado™ (EXADEP™) is a paper-and-pencil test that measures verbal, quantitative 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.
Four sections of the test have multiple-choice questions (in Spanish) that test vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, mathematics, analytical reasoning and written expression. Section five of the EXADEP test, which measures vocabulary, grammar and reading comprehension, is given in English.
