About the test

Similar to IELTS, the test assesses all 4 components: Listening, Reading, Writing and Speaking. It will take up to 4 hours to complete:

  • Listening (30 mins) - you will be given three recordings to listen to. You must then answer questions related to these recordings.
  • Reading (60 mins) - you will be given three pieces of text to read. You must then answer questions relating to each text.
  • Writing (60 mins) - you will be given two essay titles for which you will need to write an essay on the subject area.
  • Speaking (up to 30 mins) - you will have a short interview with the examiner where you will be asked questions on a variety of subjects.

Example tests

To help you prepare and practice for your English test, we have provided samples of reading and writing questions and reading texts. These samples are designed to be similar in difficulty to the CUET, however the questions in the actual test will be different. The samples do not include speaking or listening, but do include the reading and writing elements.
