UEMTN students take two external examinations during their Upper EGB school years: ELASH I in 8th grade, and ELASH II in 10th grade. These exams are administered by College Board, institution which also manages SAT exams. We are proud to inform that our students have reached excellent levels of achievement in both examinations. The constant feedback and the opportunity to measure our students’ development, provide a basis for baccalaureate preparation subject to continuous improvement in planning and teaching-learning strategies.

This standard requirement guaranteesthat our students can attend university in any English-speaking country with confidence and enthusiasm.
