Then, when you feel you are almost fully prepared for your Skills for English, you can take specimen tests that mirror exactly the kind of test you will get on test day.

We now provide performance feedback at the end of the B1-C2 Listening & Reading practice tests, that give you an indication of how prepared you are to take the test at your current CEFR level. This feature is only available for levels B1 and above for Listening & Reading skills.

At the end of the B1-C2 Listening & Reading 2 practice test, the following feedback will be given on your performance.

  • If your result shows ‘Below level’: It is unlikely that you will pass the Skills for English test at this level. We recommend that you either try the test at a level below (where possible) or continue to practise your English skills before taking the Skills for English test at this level.
  • If your result shows ‘Close to level’: It is possible that you will pass the Skills for English test at this level, however, we recommend that you continue practising your English skills to give yourself the best possible chance of doing so.
  • If your result shows ‘Close to / At level’: You have a good chance of passing the Skills for English test at this level.

The provided feedback is aimed at helping you to be as successful as possible at your first test attempt, saving valuable time, money, and frustration of needing to re-test.
