Master of Evangelical Theology (MET) Critical Thinking Exam
This exam will be emailed to you later for your response during the application process.
Master of Evangelical Theology (MET) Validation Exam
This exam is administered at Tyndale before the summer term begins. It tests the knowledge that you already have for the Old Testament, New Testament, Systematic Theology and Church History – it is geared toward basic knowledge of these subjects. Scores on these tests will determine if deficiencies need to be addressed, and, in some cases, if the MET is the best fit for the student.
Certificate of Theological Studies (CTS)*
Bachelor of Arts/Science degree or equivalent from an approved vocational or academic institution. The applicant’s first degree should include 180-240 ECTS or 3-4 academic years of study. In instances where the certificate is taken as a terminal program, the Examination Board may grant acceptance to the program outside these parameters.
