We know that students’ learning and assessment needs evolve as they grow. Our innovative tests are designed to cater to academic milestones, enabling students to perform at their best, whatever age they are.
The British Council engages with over 50 million teachers and learners of English worldwide each year – teaching and assessing English are at the heart of what we do.
We have helped learners all around the world develop English skills, build connections and access opportunities, for close to 90 years.
Our English Assessments for Schools provide testing that lets students shine at every stage of their education.
As Primary education comes to an end, students have reached a key milestone in their learning journeys. It’s the ideal moment to assess their level of English and inform future learning goals when moving into secondary education. Students do better when they're interested and motivated, which is why we designed our tests with that in mind. Our Primary English tests use story-based animation to engage students so that they can do their best.
Our test is designed to track progress as students move through secondary school. At the same time, we know how important it is to help students feel confident and supported. Our Secondary English Test draws from activities and scenarios that teenagers encounter every day. This lets students aged 13 to 16 feel confident, showcase their language skills and reach their full potential.
We know how important it is for students to demonstrate their English skills. Whether a student wants to apply for a job, higher education or university, they can take English tests through the British Council. Our Upper Secondary Tests serve as a springboard to unlock exciting opportunities in the future.
