The Tamil Language Entrance Proficiency Test (TL EPT) is applicable for applicants who are being considered for teaching Tamil Language. The Ministry will require applicants to sit for the TL EPT at its discretion. Applicants will be informed to register and sit for the tests accordingly.

The test comprises two parts, a speaking component and a writing component. Applicants will be tested on their knowledge in areas such as grammar, vocabulary usage and the stylistic features of the language.


If required to sit for the TL EPT, applicants will be scheduled by the Ministry to take the test. No rescheduling of the test date is allowed unless under exceptional circumstances. Applicants will be notified of the test date, time, venue and payment details by email a week prior to the test.

The cost of the TL EPT is S$145.00 (inclusive of GST). The registration fee is non-refundable. No refund of payment will be given to those who register but are absent or withdraw from the test.


The Statement of Result indicates if an applicant has met the minimum requirements of the TL EPT. Applicants will receive this document approximately four weeks after the test date. The test result is valid for a period of two years from the date of the test.

Please note that requests for reviews of test results will not be entertained.
