How you can prepare for the examinations

  • Become familiar with the structure of the test. Learn more about its sections and the number of questions that you will be asked to answer.
  • Become familiar with the duration of the test. Practice without breaks and follow closely the guidelines and instructions provided.
  • Follow the instructions, directions and suggestions of your teachers.

Be prepared for the actual test conditions:

  • If you are taking any of the YLE examinations, you may mark your answers with pencil or pen during all sections. If you are taking the KET for Schools, PET for Schools, ECCE, and ECPE, mark your answers with pencil only during all sections. If you are taking the FCE, CAE, and CPE, mark your answers with pen only during the writing section.
  • During all examinations (except for YLE examinations), mark all your answers on the answer sheet, not in the test booklet. If you are taking any of the YLE examinations, mark all your answers in the test booklet.
  • Do not make any other marks on your answer sheet.
  • If you change your mind about an answer, erase your first mark completely.
  • Fill in one circle for each problem.
  • If you are not sure about an answer, you may guess.
  • In the test booklet you can only keep notes or underline the parts you believe might help you answer correctly the questions posed.


  • Work on past papers or mock tests does not replace systematic work on language.
  • Succeeding in past papers or mock tests does not guarantee success on the actual test.
