This paper investigates the impacts of the English national examination in Indonesia through a range of research literature. It started off with a brief history of the examination in the country. The study found out that the English national examination as well as the national examination of other subjects generally creates tremendous educational and social impacts. The examination made students, teachers, principals, parents and society to think that testing skills are vital to let students pass the exam. This resulted in the proliferation of extra classes of testing skills held by schools and tutoring institutions. All this is a result of the negative washback of the national examination.
