The placement exam in Hindi will take place during Wildcat Welcome and is not offered online.

The Hindi placement exam is required if you already have some knowledge of Hindi and would like to continue your studies or if you believe your proficiency in Hindi may satisfy the Weinberg foreign language requirement.

If you can speak and understand Hindi but have NO writing/reading skills in the language, you are automatically placed in the accelerated Hindi I class (Hindi 115-1). Please be advised that the Hindi 115 sequence is offered only every other year, and will NOT be offered in AY2013-14. In this situation you can either enroll in the Hindi I Beginners class (Hindi 111-1), or you can wait till next academic year (2014-15) in order to take Hindi 115. At all times, a permission number from Prof. Nair will be required in order to register for the accelerated Hindi I class. No permission number is required to register for Hindi 111-1.
