CELPIP-Academic Retired


With the recent acquisition of the Canadian Academic English Language (CAEL) Assessment, Paragon Testing Enterprises has retired the CELPIP-Academic Test and the last official test sitting was on August 13, 2015.

Test takers who were interested in taking the CELPIP-Academic Test are referred to take the CAEL Assessment which is one of Canada’s best academic English language tests.
