The Cambridge PET exam is the exam following the KET exam, and the exam before the FCE.

To pass the KET you must have the level of English that would let you go on holiday in an English speaking country without someone to translate for you.

The PET means that you have enough English to survive in an English speaking country for a longer period, for example as a student.

Only when you have the FCE can you really say "I speak English".


The PET

This exam is in 4 parts. The parts are - reading, writing, listening and speaking. Sometimes you might do the speaking and listening in the same place on the same day. You ALWAYS do the reading and the writing together.

All four parts of the exam have the same value - 25% each.

Your total mark is made by adding all these results together. You need to get more than 70% to pass the exam. There is no minimum for each paper, so you can pass even if you get 0 for one part (but it will be very difficult).

The mark you get after the test is one of these - fail: narrow fail: pass: pass with merit. If you fail, your result will also tell you where your English was worst.
