Pricing update and the new B2 practice test

As of February, we are adjusting the licence pricing for individual test-takers. We have not changed the price for the long seven years and it came to the moment where we need to react to the increased operational costs, especially after the introduction of the new VAT regulations. Volume pricing for companies and schools provided without VAT is therefore not affected.
Our new pricing structure aims to reflect our two key principles: a) provide the best value for money in the field of quality English language assessment; and b) charge only for features you really need and keep the others optional. You still can choose if you need the core test or complete four-skills exam including Speaking&Writing; the standard test or the Verified online test with the identity and proctoring; the electronic certificate in pdf or also the paper certificate we will ship you by post.

We also want to provide you with more free content. Our short free placement pre-test is very popular used by hundreds of thousands of users every year. Following the frequent requests, we have recently published also the free printouts of the sample test with correct answers.

This full-length English practice test provides a test structure, questions and tasks similar to the certificated TrackTest English Core test so you can try to fill this test before you decide to purchase some of the TrackTest licences. We have started with the level B2 (Upper-Intermediate English) which is the most demanded proficiency level for the job positions requiring the daily active use of language. Compared to the alternative English language assessment frameworks, it is similar to IELTS level 5-6 or TOEFL score 87-109.  You can download the full test in a pdf file on this link.
