Cambridge Assessment EnglishDescription:
Updated for 2020. A B1 Preliminary for Schools qualification shows that a student has mastered the basics of English and now has practical language skills for everyday use.
This exam is the logical step in a student’s language learning journey between A2 Key for Schools and B2 First for Schools.
B1 Preliminary for Schools is targeted at the same CEFR level as B1 Preliminary but with content aimed at school-age learners rather than adults.
• new and updated tasks across all of the papers
• better alignment between the exams, showing clearer progression from one exam to the next
• an update to the way that grades are reported, bringing the exams in line with higher level Cambridge English Qualifications
• separation of the Reading and Writing papers in B1 Preliminary and B1 Preliminary for Schools.
