Abstract

The EPT test is a test that measures the academic English proficiency of a non-native speaker of English. This research is aimed at identifying the students‟ weakness points on commonly found grammar problems in EPT. The identification is then used as the basis for constructing a syllabus that meets the students‟ need. In general, the students‟ needs based on the analysis are as follows: 1. Incomplete sentences: conjunctions, comparisons, subject missing, adjective clauses, 2. Underlined words: count/non-count nouns, banana rule, adjectives, prepositions, noun-pronoun agreement, singular/plural nouns; 3. Reading Comprehension and Vocabulary: References, passage organization, exception, inferences, topics, main ideas.

Keywords: EPT, students‟ needs, grammar problems
