All students are required to undertake a Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LLN) test as part of their Orientation. This will provide AGC with the demonstrated evidence in person that they will have the language, literacy and numeracy skills needed for their course. Based on the LLN test result, AGC will determent if student can complete the course. If the student cannot complete these questions correctly, an interview with the Academic Manager must be scheduled to review whether the student is able to continue with the enrolment. During this interview, Academic Manager will explain to the student the LLN requirements of the course (the complexity of texts to be read and produced, oral exchanges, and the calculations required). If you need any LLN support, please fill in the LLN Support form and send it to admin@agc.edu.au
