Speaking, Listening and Reading skills are tested in a one-to-one interview that takes about 60 minutes. The interview is audio-recorded. For the Writing test, the tester will give you task sheets and explain the tasks to you; then you will have 60 minutes to write.

Academic Test:

The academic test is for candidates wishing to take a test in order to gain entry into an academic program (e.g. university or other educational institutions).

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, everyday life in the university or other educational institution, and your academic discipline.

Professional Registration Test:

We have developed an approach to testing that focuses on the English language used by teachers in their roles as practitioners and professionals in Australian society. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English.

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, everyday life in an Australian school, and your field in education.

Vocational Test:

The vocational test is designed for candidates wishing to take a test for vocational purposes other than teaching. The focus is especially on your practical ability in using English.

Three things determine the content of the test: everyday life in Australia, life in your vocational workplace, and your vocational field.
