What is the KET for Schools exam?

The KET (Key English Test) for schools test is the same in format as the general KET/KEY exam.

The primary difference is that this test is geared towards younger students and as such does not cover the same subject matter as the general KET test.

The topics tend to be simpler, though the English skills that are tested are the same.
