Format of the test papers

During the test, you will have two booklets on the desk:

The Test Booklet contains the topics for Module 1 (Written English), as well as the multiple choice questions for Modules 2 and 3.

The front cover of the Answer Booklet is for recording your answers to the multiple choice questions. You also write your essay responses to Module 1 in the Answer Booklet.

MSAP-UK is a timed test and there is one hour allocated for each Module. You MUST NOT work on the multiple choice questions during the Written English time, and vice versa.

Candidates who:

  • open the test booklet to multiple choice questions during the Written English time;
  • make any entry on the multiple choice answers section of the Answer Booklet during the Written English time;
  • or continue to write their responses to Written English in the Answer Booklet during multiple choice time

will be penalised by having their test cancelled.
