Exam confidence for learners - and their teachers

Students aren’t the only ones to get exam nerves!

It can be hard for teachers to know exactly when their students are ready to sit for English exams like the Pearson English International Certificate (PTE General).

Introducing the Readiness Test.

This quick, online test gives at-a-glance and detailed information about how ready your students are for their exam, both individually and as a group.

It also clearly identifies any skills gaps and gives you the specific teaching recommendations you need to address them.

How does the Readiness Test work?

The Readiness Test is available at levels A2, B1, B2 and C1. It can be taken anytime, anywhere in about an hour. A few minutes later, you will have detailed Student and Group Readiness Reports, packed full of valuable information.

Easy to understand

‘Traffic light’ indicators will tell you if your students are Ready, Potentially Ready or Not Ready - overall and in each language skill.
