FAQ

Question 1: I cannot come to Malaysia before the classes begin and register for the course. If I arrive late, can I be given special permission to register late for the class?

No, you are not exempted. You still need to provide TOEFL or  IELTS scores or scores that are equivalent to a CEFR level.

 

Question 3: I have done well in the writing component of my TOEFL. Can I be exempted from this component?

The PIE is offered as a package. You are not allowed to sign up for individual courses unless you are repeating the component.

 

Question 4: I have classes at the same time in my faculty. Can the PIE  classes be held at a different time?

If you are given a ‘Provisional Admission’ on your admission letter from UPM, you MUST give priority to the PIE classes. If you sign up for courses in your faculty and there is a clash in the schedule, you must attend the PIE classes. You are not  allowed to come late or leave early from the PIE classes.

 

Question 5: I am waiting for my TOEFL/IELTS scores. If I register for the PIE and I get my results during the semester, can I be exempted from the PIE?

No, you must have your TOEFL/IELTS scores  BEFORE you register as a student in UPM. Once you have signed up for the PIE course, you will not be exempted even if you pass the TOEFL/IELTS during the semester. (Please refer to CALC UPM for advice).
