What it PET?
The Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET) is the second level of the Cambridge exams in English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). It is an intermediate level exam. Successful candidates receive a certificate awarded by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations. The certificate is recognised by employers in many countries, and universities in some countries also recognise PET as an initial qualification in English. PET is designed for people whose English is adequate for many practical purposes, including work, study and social situations. It indicates an ability to cope with situations which require a predictable use of language, read simple textbooks and articles and write simple personal letters, or make notes during a meeting.

PET is taken by more than 80,000 people each year in more than 80 countries, and is a valuable qualification for anyone who wants to work or study abroad or to develop a career in international business. It is also useful preparation for higher level examinations.

What does the exam involve?
PET has three papers:  Reading and Writing  |Listening  |Speaking.

Each paper is returned to Cambridge for marking and assessment, except the Speaking Test, which is conducted by British Council administered examiners who examine candidates face to face. All examiners are accredited by Cambridge ESOL. For more detailed information visit the Cambridge website.

How much does it cost?
Taking the exam will cost you Tk. 5.000/-
