A B1 Preliminary for Schools qualification shows that a student has mastered the basics of English and now has practical language skills for everyday use. This exam is the logical step in a student’s language learning journey between A2 Key for Schools and B2 First for Schools. B1 Preliminary for Schools is targeted at the same CEFR level as B1 Preliminary but with content aimed at school-age learners rather than adults.
The certificate can be used to enroll in the 9th grade in English intensive/bilingual classes. It can also be used to substitute the language exam at the Romanian Baccalaureate exam.
The exam is made of 3 papers: Reading and Writing (1 hour and 30 minutes), Listening (approximately 30 minutes) and Speaking (10 – 12 minutes).
