Aptis is an English test for adults, which can be used to assess ability in all four English skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing. Aptis allows testing the skills relevant to your requirements accurately, and getting results within as little as 24 hours.

Aptis is used by corporate businesses, government organisations, educational institutions and NGOs for:
• Benchmarking students or employees
• Language audits to identify training needs
• Filtering potential employees for interview
• Filtering students to identify those ready for other exams
• Filtering current employees for promotion
• As a diagnostic tool to identify strengths and weaknesses of people seeking employment
• Evaluating language development projects

There are three delivery modes available:
• Computer based
• pen and paper based
• telephone based (for speech based assessments)

Aptis Exam Structure:
Aptis is delivered in Computer based, pen and paper based, telephone based (for speech-based assessments).

Aptis is made up of a number of components, which are taken in packages rather than individually. You select the core language knowledge component (grammar and vocabulary) and combine it with separate skills components for accurate and relevant testing that meets your needs. If you wish to test a mix of skills, different components can be taken together. There are 15 different Aptis packages available for testing Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing

Aptis Scoring:
Candidate performance in each skill is mapped to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). An Aptis candidate will receive a score on a numerical scale (0 to 50) for the grammar and vocabulary section, and a score on a numerical scale (0 – 50) and CEFR level (A1 – C) for each skill they take. This will make up the candidate’s profile of language proficiency.
