What's in the exam?

The exams are designed to be fair to people of all nationalities and linguistic backgrounds, and are supported by a dedicated research programme. They are work-focused exams which:
• test all four language skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking), plus grammar and vocabulary, in one exam
• use real work-related tasks and activities for practical use in the workplace
• feature a face-to-face Speaking test for a more realistic test of communicating successfully at work.
Your overall performance is calculated by averaging the scores you achieve in Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking. The weighting of each of the four skills is equal.
