French Language Testing for admission purposes to McGill offered by McGill's School of Continuing Studies.
Test results are used to evaluate a test candidate’s current level of French language proficiency and results may also be provided to Faculty or Administrative Services at McGill.
Note that test candidates may only take the test once per year, and results are only valid for 6 months.
Please note that all fees are non-refundable. Before submitting your registration, please double check your choices, as the test date and component selection is fixed and final.
Registration must be completed online.
