Assessment tasks and tests are administered at the end of the BEP II course to evaluate the development of speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. If you meet all the BEP exit requirements, you will be eligible to commence their UQ program. 

During BEP I and BEP II, you will do weekly progress tests to check you are on track with your academic progress to reach your English language goals.

You will have one-on-one consultation sessions with your teacher every 5 weeks to talk about your progress and develop a personal study plan.

Summary information about BEP assessment is provided below. To read full details, get the BEP assessment student guide.

Students studying at ICTE-UQ under a Student Visa are required to make satisfactory course progress as a condition of their visa.

Results certificate

Students are issued with a certificate(s) of achievement based on the test results of courses completed.

Results Certificates show the course and class level studied and an achievement level for Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing as well as an overall grade.


At the end of your total period of enrolment, you also receive a Certificate of Attendance that shows your course dates and either a ‘Satisfactory’ or ‘Unsatisfactory’ level of attendance. You must attend a minimum of 80% of all classes to achieve a ‘Satisfactory’ level of attendance.
