The EWET is the English Writing Entrance Test conducted by SUTD for selected Freshmore students in term 1. It is an English Diagnostic Test run by the Centre for Writing and Rhetoric to ensure that undergraduate students have the necessary skills to cope with HASS readings, essays and other modules that require some form of writing. Students who fail the EWET are not expected to withdraw from SUTD.

If you fail the EWET, you are required to complete additional assignments in your mandatory Freshmore Communication Program (term one). Freshmore Communication Programme is a mandatory six week module that is offered in September. Lessons are conducted once a week, for 1.5 hours each week. It is a Pass/Fail module and the grades will appear on the student’s transcript when they graduate from SUTD.
