Vocabulary Skill Test
What is a Vocabulary Skill Test?
Candidates are required to identify antonyms, synonyms, definitions and rhyming pairs.
Questions are presented in a multiple choice question style. The difficulty level is increased from Fundamental to the Core and Professional levels by the obscurity of the given words and the relevance of the options to the given word.
Candidates are presented with 30 questions to complete within 15 minutes. Responses are automatically marked and a point is awarded for each correctly answered question. Skipped questions or those that are not taken will result in no point being awarded.
