What is the Preliminary English Test (PET)?

The Cambridge PET is an internationally recognised exam for people who can use everyday written and spoken English at an intermediate level. PET is at Level B1 in the Common European Framework of Reference.

What will the PET do for you?

PET is accepted around the world for business and study purposes. Thousands of employers, universities and government departments recognise PET as an intermediate qualification in English.
