What is an EnglishScore?
An EnglishScore is an accurate and unbiased assessment of your English language skills.
You can score up to 600 points on our free English test. Each hundred point band on the EnglishScore scale correlates to the international standard Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). The EnglishScore point-based system helps you better understand your level within a CEFR band. . Our score gives you a better understanding of where you sit within each band.
Each question in our English test is designed to assess a specific skill and CEFR level. We measure the core competencies of English: grammar, vocabulary, reading and listening. Within these skills we assess language elements such as tenses, prepositions, modality and meaning.
How we calculate your score
The EnglishScore test uses adaptive technology to determine an individual’s English level. Our test is split into three sections, each designed to test a specific skill. The first section determines your approximate level and will influence the questions you see later. The more questions you get right, the more challenging the test becomes, and the higher your final score.
Our automated marking system ensures results are instantly available, allowing you to quickly and accurately understand your level and certify your score.

Aligned to a global language standard

In addition to proving your level to an employer, you can use our English test as an indicator of your performance on other international English tests such as IELTS.
