PET Exam Preparation - Live Tutors Via Skype

Are you ready for the PET exam?

PET Exam

The PET (Preliminary English Test) exam is given in order to evaluate how well a test taker can understand factual and situational information and then react to it accurately in English. The PET test can cover topics such as daily events, reading text from books or magazines, writing personal emails or letters and taking notes in situations such as work or school. Are you ready to take the PET exam? Take this simple questionnaire to find out.

  • Can you read and understand short English texts on a variety of subjects?
  • Are you comfortable reading and interpreting descriptions of people in English?
  • Can you evaluate the truth of statements in English?
  • Have you had practice with formal and informal English conversations?
  • Have you taken and scored well on this kind of exam before?

If you answered 'no' to any of those questions, you may want to speak with one of Live Lingua's PET tutors. The first trial PET class is absolutely free. You can speak with the tutor to see if they think you are ready for the PET test and they can propose a study plan for you. No credit card required, and no commitment.

PET for Schools Exam

The PET (Preliminary English Test) for schools test is identical in content to the general PET test. The primary difference between the two exams is that the PET for Schools exam contains material that is meant for younger students. This means that while the students need to study the same material, the complexity of the subject matter will be different than it would be for the exam taken by adults. If you have any questions about the difference, please do not hesitate to contact us.
