BEC Centre

Mar Ivanios College is an approved Cambridge University Business English [Vantage] Certificate Course Centre with the objectives of enhancing the communicative skills at an international level, focusing on the use of English in real-world business situations and preparing students for BEC Vantage which tests English language ability used in the context of business. The Centre started its training sessions from June 30, 2007 and it is now into its 12th year after inception. The practice adopted in the training comprises of an initial screening of the students on the basis of a test where they have to demonstrate their interest in improving their communicative skills. This small group consisting of 30-40 students is given personal attention to take the international examination while in their second year UG programme at college. The course has a flexible structure where the contents are result-oriented and designed accordingly by the teacher-trainers. The sessions are student-focused and are totally devoid of lectures, submission of assignments etc. They consist of language skill-building activities within a global context. The modules trained are Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. While the national average pass percentage for BEC Vantage stands in the range of 60-65% that of the College centre is in the 80-85% range. The 100% pass in the last four consecutive years also indicate the success as well as the confidence instilled in the students when it comes to taking examinations and facing job-interviews. The College has now been accepted for registration on the Cambridge University website, providing access to global placement opportunities for students who have passed the exam from the Mar Ivanios College Training and Exam Centre for the BEC. Dr. P.J. Jacob, Dean and Associate Professor, Dept of English is the current Director. Email: jacob.pj@mic.ac.in
