Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools (Preliminary English Test – PET for Schools)

Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools, also known as Preliminary English Test (PET) for Schools, is a qualification that shows a student can handle everyday written and spoken English at an intermediate level.

Because Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools is specially tailored to suit the interests of young students, it increases their motivation to learn English. And because it is based on familiar topics and situations, it gives them the confidence to use their English and inspires them to move on to further qualifications.

Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools is targeted at Level B1 on the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) scale and is aimed at students who want to:

  • understand the main points of straightforward instructions or public announcements
  • deal with everyday situations when going out
  • ask simple questions and take part in factual conversations with friends, family and at school
  • write letters or make notes on familiar matters.

Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools follows exactly the same format and tests at the same level as Cambridge English: Preliminary, also known as Preliminary English Test (PET). The only difference is in the content and treatment of topics, which in Cambridge English: Preliminary for Schools have been particularly targeted to the interests and experience of young students.

The PET is officially recognized in Greece by the state (ASEP/Supreme Council for Civil Personnel Selection) and the private sector as a B1 level certification of English language competence.

It is also recognized in several countries and can be used for academic and professional purposes that require language competence certification of this level.
