CELPIP, Canadian English Language Proficiency Index Program is a test organized over the globe for evaluating the proficiency of an individual in the English Language. Paragon Testing Enterprises, a subsidiary of the University of British Columbia manages CELPIP. The test has 2 versions – CELPIP General and CELPIP General LS. It is a fully computerized examination which is conducted in a single sitting. Currently, CELPIP is valid only for Canadian immigration purposes.
CELPIP Results are available online within 8 business days. For the availability of the result within 3 business days, test takers can opt for Express Rating as well.
As, different modules of the English language i.e. Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking are involved in the test, therefore a coordinated support system is provided for each one of them respectively. For example, a computer mouse and a keyboard are given to the test takers for the Reading and Writing sections of CELPIP, whereas a computer microphone and a headset are provided for Listening and Speaking components.
