MBMMBI Policy has been our MOE’s major concern,thus they have obligated every English teacher in Malaysia to sit for Cambridge English Placement Test or CPT to measure their level of English proficiency. My turn will be on this Wednesday at 2.00 PM.
While waiting for the day, I have browsed around the net about what CPT really is. And I found this website http://www.cambridgeesol.org/placement/. It explains everything about Cambridge Placement Test.
The Cambridge Placement Test is an online adaptive test of Listening, Reading and Language Knowledge. It has been designed to be short and flexible to meet the needs of users who want to place English language learners at all levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) from Pre-A1-C2 in a wide variety of contexts.
- On demand
- All CEFR levels (Pre-A1–C2)
- Immediate results
- General English
- Listening, Reading, Use of English
- 30 minutes
Results are reported as an overall score on a scale of 0-100, indicating the level on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) from Pre-A1 – C2.
|75-89||C1 (Effective proficiency)|
While wandering around the site I had tried out the demo version of Cambridge Placement Test. Let the series of screen pictures below tell you what it was about.
This is the first screen that popped out and you are to choose to take on tutorial or go straight to the test.
Before begin the test, we must key in the token password. For demo version just type DEMCPTE1 and click on Take Test button.
This is just a demo version of Cambridge English Placement Test. I have no idea what the real test is going to look like. If the level of difficulty is similar to this one, i guess there’s nothing to be worried about. Good luck to me!
