When is the AWPE?
Upcoming Analytical Writing Placement Exam (AWPE):
Prior to their matriculation at UC San Diego, California residents will take the exam at test centers across the state the morning of the second Saturday in May.
A letter will arrive in April, designating the test center where residents must take the exam. If you are unable to take the AWPE in May, make a reservation for one of the AWPE dates above, and bring your receipt.
Non-California residents have an opportunity to make an AWPE reservation and take the exam at UCSD in September, and occasionally at other times during the year.
Contact the Basic Writing Office if you have questions about scheduling.
