Abstract
Contemporary technologies have made it possible to carry out "anticipatory" testing in order to evaluate the students' potential in their chosen field of study. Both linguistic testing and interdisciplinary approach appear useful. In addition to linguistic testing, a number of other research methods can be proposed, such as communicative and organizational aptitude test, hearing sense testing, noise-immunity and lateralization testing, evaluating condition of sound localization system of the subject, attention properties (attentional capacity, concentration, distribution, stability, selectiveness) . The authors then turn to the problem of excessive noise on the workplace and its negative impact on the CNS, which contributes to deterioration of performance and, ultimately, causes health problems, thus, noise level and duration should be limited.
