TILAWAH PLACEMENT TEST (TPT)

The Centre for Languages & Pre-University Development conducts the TPT every semester to a group of new intake IIUM students. All new students (English medium) are required to sit for TPT to determine their ability in reciting al-Quran. Students will be evaluated based on their ability in reciting the Quran in terms of fluency and correctness. From here, we can facilitate the process of placing the students at their respective levels.  

It is compulsory for students to sit for TPT in their first year upon embarking on their undergraduate programme and then enrol in the Tilawah courses within the second year of study. However, students who miss their chance to sit for TPT and be enrolled in the course during the stipulated period can register for TPT for Public.

For IRK/ BARB students starting with matric no. 191XXXX onwards, they must also sit for TPT and pass both TQ 1001 and TQ 2001 or be exempted from the courses before registering in their Advanced Tilawah Courses (TQ 3001 and TQ 3002) which are their Kulliyyah Required Courses.
