The Oxford Test of English is a multi-level general English test that assesses the ability to understand and communicate effectively in English at three CEFR levels: B2, B1, and A2.

The exam is of interest for (prospective) university students as well as professionals planning to study or work abroad. A growing number of universities, educational institutions and organisations around the world accept the Oxford Test of English as a proof of English language proficiencies. A list of all institutions who recognise the respective certificates can be found here.

The test covers all four skills: Speaking, Listening, Reading, and Writing.

The Reading and Listening modules are adaptive, meaning the test adjusts the difficulty of the questions based on the participant’s answers, making the test more motivating, shorter, and a more accurate measure than traditional speaking tests.

The “Speaking” and “Writing” modules use random task generation, making each test a unique experience.
