Abstract: The purpose o f this study was to determine what correlation, if any, existed between the MA TESOL entrance exam, specifically the cloze test, and students’ performance in the program at an English-medium university in Central Asia. This was accomplished by comparing the results o f students’ scores on the three parts of the exam (cloze and two essays) with their GPAs. Findings showed the number correct in the second h alf (with exact-word scoring) o f an academic passage had a higher correlation with GPA (0.60; significant at 0.01). Correlations with the essays were not significant
