Cambridge A1 Level Pretesting
What are Cambridge English's A1 level pretests?
In a nutshell, pretests are ‘future tests.’
As part of Cambridge’s commitment to quality and fairness, all the exam materials are subjected to a number of tests and procedures to ensure they are accurate and reliable. One of these quality procedures is pretesting.
Is pretesting the same as practice tests?
No. Practice tests are usually retired exams that are no longer used. Pretesting uses questions that may or may not appear on future exams.
