Orientation sessions and AWPE

<p>I'm an out-of-state(not an American citizen) student attending UCLA as a first year.
I have to take AWPE because I didn't meet the requirements (got a 29 on ACT eng/writing.. grrr) and I tried to sign up for the orientation session 102 since UCLA website says,</p>

<p>"If you have not met the Entry Level Writing Requirement with one of the criteria previously listed, you can take the AWPE for out-of-state residents only during a First-Year Orientation session. This exam is being offered as part of a special arrangement by UCLA Writing Programs, and will be held during session 102, Wednesday, July 14, 2010 from 8:00 - 10:00 am. There is a $65 fee for taking the exam; you must bring a check with you to the exam. Only students who live outside of California and who sign up in advance when reserving an Orientation session will be allowed to take this test. When you come to the testing room, please be sure to bring a valid photo ID, your UCLA student ID number, and a $65 check with you. "</p>

<p>but the first two sessions weren't on the list (I guess they are already filled?) so I had to sign up for the 3rd which is on July 20. does this mean I can't take AWPE? I knew the orientation sign-up began on June 1st and I had problem with my computer so I am doing the sign-up now, the 2nd of June. can anyone give me any suggestions or what to do?</p>

<p>Have you tried calling the Orientation contact phone number?</p>

<p>Branching off of this topic, how do we know if we have to take the math placement exam or not?</p>
