What is the Young Learners Placement Test?
Cambridge English Young Learners Placement Test is a placement test created by Cambridge Language Assessment that verifies a child's level of English effectively and precisely in about 30 minutes, and that can be taken online in a practical setting.
This test will place the candidate in one of three Cambridge English Young Learners levels (Pre-A1 Starters, A1 Movers or A2 Flyers), identifying the best place for his or her English-speaking journey to start.
Conceived for children between 6 and 12 years old, the test can be used to:
- Assess the child's level of English with extreme precision and external validation;
- Help schools put English students on the correct level, by determining their capabilities, the right course for their present knowledge and the Cambridge English exam they should apply to;
- Enter language courses and schools, by removing doubts about admission tests and assessing if students are able to start or require support courses
Why take the Cambridge English Young Learners Placement Test?
The test takes about 30 minutes to complete and is available by request. The results are produced immediately, allowing for fast decisions regarding the types of courses and preparation level you should enroll your child in.
The Cambridge English Young Learners Placement Test was developed by Cambridge English Language Assessment, a part of the University of Cambridge, and is based on a research programme that guarantees its reliability, balance and validity.
Candidates don't need a certified centre or a specific date and time to take the test, as it is available online. It analises all of the key linguistic skills, which can be assessed individually or in group.
Thanks to a dedicated website, organisation and management of the test is very simple. Schedule the test for any date and time, get the results and print them directly on the exam page.
The Cambridge English Young Learners Placement Test uses a variety of accents and writing material from different English-speaking countries.
