A2 Key + A2 Key for Schools

Official exams > A2 Key + B1 Preliminary

This internationally recognised official Cambridge Assessment English exam demonstrates a pre-intermediate level with a basic grasp of English grammar and communication skills (Level A2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

It is designed especially for children and teenagers studying at school. Students receive the same certificate as adults that take the A2 Key exam.

What is “PET for Schools"?

The KET for Schools exam has the same format as the KET for Adults. The only difference is the topics, which are more suitable for young learners studying at school.

Why take the exam?

There are many reasons for doing the A2 KET exam (for Adults or for Schools), including:

  • Increased motivation for studying English as a goal is set and visible progress is made
  • Good preparation for the B2 First (same type of exam)
  • Recognition of progress with an official Cambridge Assessment English certificate.

What's in the exam?

The exam consists of the following parts:

  • Reading and writing – 1 hour 10 minutes
  • Listening – 30 minutes
  • Speaking in pairs – 8 to 10 minutes

You can do the speaking part with a friend also sitting the A2 KET exam.

To find out if you're ready, the mid-course exam for T3 level students is a mock exam.

To pass, you need to get 70%.

The exam costs €98.

The  'for Adults' version is held twice a year, in June and July, and the 'for Schools' once a year, in June, all of them in Granollers. For exact dates, see the exam calendar in the "Official exams" section.
