Hindi and Bengali 

The Challenge Exam consists of four parts: speaking, understanding, reading and writing.  If you do not read or write the exam language, you cannot take the Challenge Exam.  You will have to learn to read and write the language in order to take the Challenge Exam. The level expected in the exam is that of someone graduating from high school. The exam is given once each semester and cannot be taken during the final exam period or at any other time. Speak with your major/minor adviser to assure that you meet the language requirement before graduation.
