I have a question to all of those who teach or study interpreting. I was wondering whether at your university/ school there are entrance exams for students who want to study interpreting. With entrance exams I mean tests that are designed to find out whether a student has certain abilities that are needed in order to become a conference interpreter, not the final exam where the student has to show that he's already able to work as an interpreter.

I'm asking because at the university where I teach, we're in the process of developping a new entrance exam for those students who want to study interpreting. So I'm curious to hear other opinions and experiences on that matter.
