What is the difference between a full and part ISLPR® test?

Posted by on Apr 19, 2021 at 10:26 AM

Full ISLPR® Test:

A full ISLPR® test is a two-part test that examines all four macro-skills (i.e., speaking, listening, reading and writing). The first part of the test is a one hour interview where your speaking, listening and reading skills will be assessed. The second part of the test is a one hour writing test.

Part ISLPR® Test:

A part ISLPR® test only examines the skills you request to be tested. A part test is useful for candidates who do not get the rating they require in one, two or three skills. Instead of redoing the whole test, we can offer a part test.

Can anyone do a part test?

Good question! Unfortunately, we do not make the rules. ISLPR® Language Services is only responsible for administering the ISLPR® test. Before you book a part test, you must contact the end-user to confirm whether they will accept the part test results. Some end-users will only accept one certificate and therefore, you would have to do a full test again.

ISLPR® Language Services will never combine results from tests completed on different occasions.
