A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Cambridge English:Preliminary, also known as the Preliminary English Test (PET), is part of a comprehensive range of exams developed by University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL). Cambridge English exams have similar characteristics, but are designed for different purposes and different levels of English language ability. Cambndge English: Preliminary is at Level B1 (Threshold) of the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). It has also been accredited in the UK as an Entry Level 3 ESOL certificate in the UK’s National Qualifications Framework. Examination Council of Europe Framework Level UK National Qualifications Framework Level Cambridge English: Proficiency Certificate ofProficiency inEnglish (CPE) C2 3 Cambridge English: Advanced Certificate in AdvancedEnglish (CAE) C1 2 Cambridge English: First First Certificate inEnglish (FCE) B2 1 Cambridge English: Preliminary Preliminary English Test (PET) B1 Entry 3 Cambridge English: Key KeyEnglish Test (KET) A2 Entry 2 Cambridge English:Preliminary is accepted by employers, and further education and government departments for business, study and immigration purposes. It is also useful preparation for higher level exams, such as Cambridge English: First, Cambridge English: Advanced and Cambridge English:Proficiency. Cambridge English:Preliminary is ideal for learners who need to use English in a practical everyday way to communicate, e.g. read simple textbooks and articles, write simple personal letters, and deal with most of the situations you might meet when travelling in an English- speaking country. Cambridge English:Preliminary is also available in a version with exam content and topics specifically targeted at the interests and experience of school-aged learners. Cambridge English:Preliminary for Schools, also known as PreliminaryEnglish Test (PET) for Schools), follows exactly the same format and level, and leads to the same certificate as Cambridge English:Preliminary. Topics These are the topics used in the Cambridge English: Preliminary exam: 4 6.

Reading: Five parts which test a range of reading skills with a variety of texts, ranging from very short notices to longer continuous texts. Reading/ Writing 1 hour 30 minutes Paper 1 Assessment of candidates’ ability to produce straightforward written English, ranging from producing variations on simple sentences to pieces of continuous text. Writing: Three parts which test a range of writing skills. Assessment of candidates’ ability to understand dialogues and monologues in both informal and neutral settings on a range of everyday topics. Four parts ranging from short exchanges to longer dialogues and monologues. 35 minutes (plus 6 minutes transfer time) ListeningPaper 2 Assessment of candidates’ ability to express themselves in order to carry out functions at Threshold level. To ask and to understand questions and make appropriate responses. To talk freely on matters of personal interest. Four parts: In Part 1, candidates interact with an examiner; In Parts 2 and 4, they interact with another candidate; In Part 3, they have an extended individual long turn. Speaking 10-12 minutes per pair of candidates Paper 3 Paper 1: Reading and Writing Paper format The Reading component contains five parts. The Writing component contains three parts. Number of questions Reading has 35 questions; Writing has seven questions. Sources Authentic and adapted-authentic real world notices; newspapers and magazines; simplified encyclopaedias; brochures and leaflets; websites. 5 7. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Answering Candidates indicate answers by shading lozenges (Reading), or writing answers (Writing) on an answer sheet. Timing 1 hour 30 minutes. Marks Reading: Each of the 35 questions carries one mark. This is weighted so that this comprises 25% of total marks for the whole examination. Writing: Questions 1-5 carry one mark each. Question 6 is marked out of five; and Question 7/8 is marked out of 20. This gives a total of 30 which is weighted so that it represents 25% of total marks for the whole examination. Preparing for the Reading component To prepare for the Reading component, you should read a variety of authentic texts, for example, newspapers and magazines, non-fiction books, and other sources of factual material, such as leaflets, brochures and websites. It is also a good idea to practise reading (and writing) short communicative messages, including notes, cards and emails. Remember, you won’t always need to understand every word in order to be able to do a task in the exam. Before the examination, think about the time you need to do each part. It is usually approximately 50 minutes on the Reading component and 40 minutes on the Writing component. Reading Task Type and Format Task FocusPart Number of Questions Three-option multiple choice. Five short discrete texts: signs and messages, postcards, notes, emails, labels, etc., plus one example. Reading real-world notices and other short texts for the main message. 1 5 Matching. Five items in the form of descriptions of people to match to eight short adapted-authentic texts. Reading multiple texts for specific information and detailed comprehension. 2 5 True/False. Ten items with an adapted-authentic long text. Processing a factual text. Scanning for specific information while disregarding redundant material. 3 10 Four-option multiple choice. Five items with an adapted-authentic long text. Reading for detailed comprehension: understanding attitude, opinion and writer purpose. Reading for gist, inference and global meaning. 4 5 Four-option multiple-choice cloze. Ten items, plus an integrated example, with an adapted-authentic text drawn from a variety of sources. The text is of a factual or narrative nature. Understanding of vocabulary and grammar in a short text, and understanding the lexico-structural patterns in the text. 5 10 6 8. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Preparing for the Writing component Parti You have to complete five sentences which will test your grammar. There is an example, showing exactly what the task involves. You should write between one and three words to fill this gap. The second sentence, when complete, must mean the same as the first sentence. It is essential to spell correctly and no marks will be given if a word is misspelled. You will also lose the mark if you produce an answer of more than three words, even if your writing includes the correct answer. Part 2 You have to produce a short communicative message of between 35 and 45 words in length. You are told who you are writing to and why, and you must include three content points. These are clearly laid out with bullet points in the question. To gain top marks, all three points must be in your answer, so it is important to read the question carefully and plan what you will include. Marks will not be deducted for minor errors. Before the exam, you need to practise writing answers of the correct length. Answers that are too short or too long and likely to contain irrelevant information, will probably lose marks. The General Mark Scheme below is used with a Task-specific Mark Scheme (see pages 106, 121,136 and 151). General Mark Scheme for Writing Part 2 Mark Criteria All three parts of the message clearly communicated. Only minor spelling errors or occasional grammatical errors. 5 All three parts of the message communicated. Some non-impeding errors in spelling or grammar, or some awkwardness of expression. 4 All three parts of the message attempted. Expression requires interpretation by the reader and contains impeding errors in spelling and grammar. 3 Two parts of the message clearly communicated. Only minor spelling errors or occasional grammatical errors. Only two parts of the message communicated. Some errors in spelling and grammar. The errors in expression may require patience and interpretation by the reader and impede communication. 2 Only one part of the message communicated.1 Question unattempted, or totally incomprehensible response.0 Part 3 You have a choice of task: either a story or an informal letter. You need to write about 100 words. Make sure you practise enough before the exam. Reading simplified readers in English will give you ideas for story writing. Also writing to a penfriend or e-pal will give you useful practice. 7 9. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Mark Scheme for Writing Part 3 Examiners look at four aspects of your writing: Content, Communicative Achievement, Organisation, and Language. Content focuses on how well you have fulfilled the task, in other words if you have done what you were asked to do. Communicative Achievement focuses on how appropriate the writing is for the letter or story and whether you have used the appropriate register. Organisation focuses on the way you put the piece of writing together, in other words if it is logical and ordered, and the punctuation is correct. Language focuses on your vocabulary and grammar. This includes the range of language, as well as how accurate it is. For each of the subscales, the examiner gives a maximum of five marks; this gives an overall maximum score of 20 for the Part 3 task. Examiners use the following assessment scale: B1 Content Communicative Achievement Organisation Language All content is relevant to the task. Target reader is fully informed. Uses the conventions of the communicative task to hold the target reader’s attention and communicate straightforward ideas. 5 Text is generally well organised and coherent, using a variety of linking words and cohesive devices. Uses a range of everyday vocabulary appropriately, with occasional inappropriate use of less common lexis. Uses a range of simple and some complex grammatical forms with a good degree of control. Errors do not impede communication. 4 Performance shares features of Bands 3 and5. 3 Minor irrelevances and/ or omissions may be present. Target reader is on the whole informed. Uses the conventions of the communicative task in generally appropriate ways to communicate straightforward ideas. Text is connected and coherent, using basic linking words and a limited number of cohesive devices. Uses everyday vocabulary generally appropriately, while occasionally overusing certain lexis. Uses simple grammatical forms with a good degree of control. While errors are noticeable, meaning can still be determined. 2 Performance shares features of Bands 1and3. Irrelevances and misinterpretation of task may be present. Target reader is minimally informed. 1 Produces text that communicates simple ideas in simple ways. Text is connected using basic, high- frequency linking words. Uses basic vocabulary reasonably appropriately. Uses simple grammatical forms with some degree of control. Errors may impede meaning at times. 8 10. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Organisation LanguageCommunicative Achievement ContentB1 Performance below Band 1.Content is totally irrelevant. Target reader is not informed. 0 Length of responses Make sure you write the correct amount of words. Responses which are too short may not have an adequate range of language and may not provide all the information that is required. Responses which are too long may contain irrelevant content and have a negative effect on the reader. Varieties of English You are expected to use a particular variety of English with some degree of consistency in areas such as spelling, and not for example switch from using a British spelling of a word to an American spelling of the same word. Writing Number of Questions Task FocusTask Type and FormatPart Control and understanding of Threshold/Cambridge English: Preliminary grammatical structures. Rephrasing and reformulating information. 5Sentence transformations. Five items, plus an integrated example, that are theme-related. Candidates are given sentences and then asked to complete similar sentences using a different structural pattern so that the sentence still has the same meaning. 1 A short piece of writing of 35-45 words focusing on communication of specific messages. 1Short communicative message. Candidates are prompted to write a short message in the form of a postcard, note, email, etc. The prompt takes the form of a rubric to respond to. 2 Writing about 100 words focusing on control and range of language. 1A longer piece of continuous writing. There is a choice of two questions, an informal letter or a story. Candidates are assessed on four aspects of their writing: Content, Communication Achievement, Organisation, and Language. 3 Paper 2: Listening Paper format This paper contains four parts. Number of questions 25 Text types All texts are based on authentic situations. 9 11. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Answering Candidates indicate answers either by shading lozenges (Parts 1, 2 and 4) or writing answers (Part 3) on an answer sheet. Candidates record their answers on the question paper as they listen. They are then given six minutes at the end of the test to copy these on to the answer sheet. Recording information Each text is heard twice. Recordings will contain a variety of accents corresponding to standard variants of native speaker accents. Timing About 35 minutes, including six minutes to transfer answers. Marks Each question carries one mark. This gives a total of 25 marks, which represents 25% of total marks for the whole examination. Part Task Type and Format Task Focus Number of questions 1 Multiple choice (discrete). Short neutral or informal monologues or dialogues. Seven discrete three-option multiple-choice items with visuals, plus one example. Listening to identify key information from short exchanges. 7 2 Multiple choice. Longer monologue or interview (with one main speaker). Six three-option multiple-choice items. Listening to identify specific information and detailed meaning. 6 Gap-fill. Longer monologue. Six gaps to fill in. Candidates need to write one or more words in each space. 3 Listening to identify, understand and interpret information. 6 4 True/False. Longer informal dialogue. Candidates need to decide whether six statements are correct or incorrect. Listening for detailed meaning, and to identify the attitudes and opinions of the speakers. 6 Preparing for the Listening paper You will hear the instructions for each task on the recording, and see them on the exam paper. In Part 1, there is also an example text and task to show you how to record your answers. In Parts 2, 3 and 4, the instructions are followed by a pause; you should read the questions in that part then. This will help you prepare for the listening. The best preparation for the Listening paper is to listen to authentic spoken English at this level. Having discussions provides a good authentic source of listening practice, as does listening to the teacher. You can also listen to texts to give you practice in understanding different voices and styles of delivery. 10 12. A Guide to Cambridge English: Preliminary Paper 3: Speaking Paper format The standard format is two candidates and two examiners. One of the examiners acts as an interlocutor and the other as an assessor. The interlocutor directs the test, while the assessor takes no part in the interaction. Timing 10-12 minutes per pair of candidates. Marks Candidates are assessed on their performance throughout the test. There are a total of 25 marks in Paper 3, making 25% of the total score for the whole examination. TimingTask FocusTask Type and FormatPart Giving information of a factual, personal kind. The candidates respond to questions about present circumstances, past experiences and future plans. 2-3Each candidate interacts with the interlocutor.
