CAEL

Introduction

The Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Test, CE (Computer Edition), measures the English language proficiency of students planning to study at Canadian universities and colleges. The Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) is one of the examination centres appointed by the Paragon Testing Enterprises. CAEL CE is one of the best tools for identifying students with the right English skills for academic success. It provides an authentic representation of language use in a Canadian academic context. Test takers read articles, listen to a lecture, answer questions, and write a short essay, as they would be expected to do in a first-year Canadian university or college classroom.

Registration methods

    The CAEL Test Centres do not process any registration applications. All registrations should be completed through the CAEL CE Office at Paragon Testing Enterprises. The best and easiest way to register is online. For more details, please visit  https://www.cael.ca/.

 

 

Note for test takers

On test day, all test takers who do not provide their valid identification during check-in at the test sitting will be refused entry to the test and will not be eligible for a refund or transfer.

 

 

Test Dates and Registration Deadlines

Test dates are listed at the CAEL CE website at https://www.cael.ca/take-cael/find-a-test-date/. Depending on the test centre, test registration closes approximately 2 to 3 days before the scheduled test date. It is recommended that you register well in advance, because test centres have limited capacity and registration requests are processed in the order in which they are received.

 

 

General Typhoon / Bad Weather Arrangements

As cancellation and/or postponement of an examination is a very serious matter, any decision to do so by the Hong Kong Examinations and Assessment Authority (HKEAA) will be made only when it is absolutely necessary. If weather conditions are at all doubtful (such as the possible hoisting of a Typhoon Signal No. 8 or above or the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning), candidates should pay attention to the radio or television broadcast, or view the HKEAA website for examination schedules right up to the time they leave for the examination centre. Candidates should note that:

(a) under normal circumstances, the HKEAA announcement of the postponement/cancellation of an examination will be made approximately two hours before the commencement of the examination;

(b) the announcement of closure of schools due to a tropical cyclone/the issue of the Rainstorm Red or Black Warning does not necessarily imply any postponement/cancellation of an examination scheduled to be held on that day;

(c) unless an announcement has been made by the HKEAA that examinations/public examinations/ international and professional examinations held by the HKEAA are postponed/cancelled due to bad weather conditions, candidates must assume that their examinations will be conducted as originally scheduled;

(d) once an examination has started, it will continue for the full allotted time unless physical conditions in the examination centre are considered to be dangerous by the Centre Supervisor.
